Small business counselors closer to clients

ANDERSON — Counseling small business owners will be more convenient for Anderson’s chapter of the Service Corps of Retired Executives as the organization’s volunteers continue to move their offices into the Flagship Enterprise Center.

Planned to be up and running by Monday, the SCORE chapter’s new offices will bring it closer to many of its clients, who work out of the Flagship.

“The main purpose is we think we can serve our customers, people who want to start up, we can serve our customers a lot better here at the Flagship than where we were at the ABI (Anderson Business Incubator),” said Anderson SCORE Co-Chairman Lyle Crouse. “It seems like out here is where the activity is and out here we’ve got a better chance at helping folks.”

SCORE’s Anderson chapter started in 1983, and it has grown to cover all of Madison County and parts of surrounding counties, as well. When it started, it was housed with the Anderson/Madison County Chamber of Commerce, which also recently made the move to the Flagship.

“We’re with the Chamber out here now and we’re with CED (Corporation for Economic Development),” Crouse said. “Here we’re back together for a better synergy.”

Flagship Executive Director DeWayne Landwehr said having SCORE in the building, near Interstate 69’s Exit 22, will benefit Flagship businesses.

“We have been trying to ramp up our client service offerings,” Landwehr said. “We have been working closely with SCORE all along, but adding them here in the same building certainly does help. We will have a much closer relationship among SCORE, the Flagship and our clients.”

Flagship clients have heard about SCORE’s move and are happy about it, Landwehr said.

“Most of the clients out here have ended up with a smile on their face because they can see the benefits of the synergy as well,” he said.
