CHARLES TOWN, WV -

Tom Halverstadt has been hired as the Eastern Panhandle's first business/entrepreneur coach in a partnership of the Jefferson County Development Authority and the West Virginia Small Business Development Center.

Halverstadt's position is being funded by the Small Business Development Center with financial support from local business community partners, according to John Reisenweber, the JCDA's executive director.

Entrepreneurs and small business owners in Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan counties can work with Halverstadt at no cost. He'll provide in-depth, one-on-one business consultative services to recently formed companies and established small businesses seeking to expand, diversify or attract new capital investment, Reisenweber said.

Halverstadt has experience as a chief executive officer, chief operating officer and chief financial officer. He was as a CPA for 10 years with Deloitte. 

He attended the University of Maryland and is a Marine Corps veteran.

The SBDC is a division of the West Virginia Development Office and is funded by the state, the U.S. Small Business Administration, West Virginia community colleges and Workforce Investment Board partners.
