The assistant director of Missouri State University’s Small Business and Technology Development Center set her retirement date.

Isabel Eisenhauer, who has worked for MSU for 10 years and became assistant director of the SBTDC in 2014, is scheduled to step down Feb. 2, according to a news release. SBTDC Training Coordinator Tara Horton said Eisenhauer does not have another job lined up.

During her tenure, according to the release, Eisenhauer is credited with:
    •    helping clients obtain more than $77 million in loans and equity investments;
    •    counseling 396 unique small businesses;
    •    helping employers add 1,566 and retain 5,552 southwest Missouri jobs; and
    •    assisting businesses in earning more than $100 million in new sales.
“I have appreciated our many conversations over the years and Isabel’s logical, process-oriented approach to her work,” MO SBTDC Director Greg Tucker said in the release. “Recognized by everyone as one of the most knowledgeable employees in our network, Isabel’s perspective, input and guidance made our organization a better organization.”

The MSU SBTDC is part of the MO SBTDC, a statewide initiative of the University of Missouri Extension Business Development Program, according to the release.

Horton said the SBTDC will not seek a successor for Eisenhauer’s position. Instead, it will hire a regional small-business consultant to help fill her role.
