Debra Malewicki: Interim Director of Business and Manufacturing Extension
Debra Malewicki is, as of July 1, the University of Wisconsin-Extension's interim director of Business and Manufacturing Extension. She will provide leadership for the 13 Small Business Development Centers, Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Network and other business-focused programs.
UW Colleges/UW-Extension Chancellor David Wilson named Malewicki to the position upon the retirement of Erica Kauten. Malewicki will serve in the position as Chancellor Wilson gathers information about UW-Extension's role in economic development and how the organization might best provide programs and services that boost Wisconsin's productivity and help create new jobs.
"I'm honored and excited to continue the leadership that Erica has brought to entrepreneurial business development in Wisconsin," Malewicki says. "Given that entrepreneurs are the net job generators, building the capacity of the Small Business Development Centers and the Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Network to provide seamless service to growth-oriented businesses is critical to effective economic development." —UW-Extension
