WASHINGTON (6/26/08)--President George W. Bush Wednesday announced his intention to nominate a new administrator for the Small Business Administration (SBA). The President said he will nominate Santanu “Sandy” K. Baruah, who is currently assistant secretary for economic development at the U.S. Department of Commerce, for the top SBA spot. According to a White House press release, Baruah has held several positions at the Commerce Department. Prior to his current position, he served as chief of staff of the economic development administration at Commerce. Earlier he served as deputy assistant secretary for economic development there.
