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.

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