If you wish you knew someone with lots of executive experience to ask for advice about running a successful business, here’s your chance. This month Richard Sultan opens a SCORE chapter in Loudoun County, and he’ll be available to meet with clients starting September 25.

SCORE gives business managers and retired executives specialized training to serve as counselors, advisers and mentors to entrepreneurs and small business owners. Their services are offered free of charge. SCORE is funded by the Small Business Administration and their corporate partners, and has more than 13,000 volunteer business counselors throughout the U.S.

“My financial background in accounting, taxes and financial planning has enabled me to assist pretty much every client that would like to open a new venture. In addition, I speak French, Portuguese and Spanish, which has been very helpful over the years,” said Sultan.

Sultan has been a SCORE mentor for seven years and previously served in New Jersey and D.C. He’ll offer hourly counseling sessions on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mason Enterprise Center in Leesburg. To make an appointment, call the Loudoun Small Business Development Center at 571-441-1826, or email SCORELoudoun@gmail.com.

“The Loudoun Small Business Development Center looks forward to leveraging its service to Loudoun’s small business and entrepreneurial community by partnering with SCORE,” said Michael Matteson, President, Loudoun SBDC Board of Directors. “This will further broaden and enhance the services available to our community.”
