SeCTer welcomes new SBDC counselor Judith Lamson-Rockwell

July 28, 2020 |

The Southeastern Connecticut Enterprise Region (seCTer) has added a new business advisor to its team — expanding the economic development organization’s ability to offer advice to businesses in the region.

Judith Lamson-Rockwell joined the seCTer team earlier this month as a business advisor subcontractor through the Small Business Development Council (SBDC). Through this addition to the team, seCTer is now able to provide business advising services to complement its established small business lending program, grant writing, as well as procurement and marketing assistance. Now available for free online registration, the business advising program offers no-cost confidential business advice to enrollees. 

“We are thrilled to offer counseling in this new capacity, especially through an individual like Judith with so much experience,” seCTer Executive Director Nancy Cowser said. 

Lamson-Rockwell brings to seCTer a diverse background in business and management. As an executive in the apparel industry, she developed a hands-on approach to manufacturing, specializing in product development, supply chain, quality assurance and apparel design. In traveling and working directly with factories, she has a sound understanding of the process and challenges of the industry. Lamson-Rockwell has also founded several businesses, including her most recent venture of Three Bridges Coffeehouse in Shelton, Conn. She holds an MBA from Northeastern University. 

In this new role, Lamson-Rockwell is expected to advise more than 200 clients annually.

“We are grateful for the SBDC for their faith and partnership to offer this service out of our office,” Cowser added. “SeCTer is honored to carry this program forward and is committed to assisting as many businesses as we can.”
