Maria Contreras-Sweet, Administrator
U.S. Small Business Administration
Maria Contreras-Sweet became the 24th Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and a member of President Obamas cabinet on April 7, 2014. SBA is charged with supporting Americas small businesses, which create nearly two out of three net, new private-sector jobs in our economy and employ half of our nations private-sector workforce.
In nominating Contreras-Sweet to lead the SBA, President Obama said: Maria was the driving force behind major job creation and major public investments in infrastructure and in housing [in California]. Shes a champion of women-owned and family-owned businesses. And as someone who moved to California from Mexico as a young girl, and whose mother worked long hours to support Maria and her five siblings, she knows firsthand the challenges that working families and recent immigrants are facing.
