In this week’s addition, we spoke with Ashely Teasdel, S.C. Commerce’s director of Business Services – a division which houses several of the agency’s important programs, including Recycling Market Development, Small Business Development, Supplier Development and Outreach and Existing Industry.
Q: Previously, you worked at BB&T, serving small businesses for a few years. How did that experience prepare you for your time here at S.C. Commerce?
A: The start of my professional career in banking was a major catalyst to understanding businesses and their needs. The benefit of being a small business banker afforded me the opportunity to provide analysis to current and prospective client needs, as well as best options, working with the client to determine optimal solutions.
