Blue Mountain Community College’s Small Business Development Center in Baker City has named two new business advisors. Joining current business advisor Jeff Nelson are Glenas Orcutt and Phillip O’Reilly.
 
Orcutt brings extensive experience in business and marketing with more than 25 years in advertising management and sales. In her previous position as Regional Advertising Director for the Baker City Herald and the La Grande Observer, Orcutt was responsible for sales management, training and development of print and digital products.
 
With a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Colorado, O’Reilly brings considerable experience in finance and economics. He recently owned a wireless internet service provider company and is currently a computer consultant.
 
BMCC Director of SBDC Art Hill said he is thrilled that Orcutt and O’Reilly are joining the team.
 
“With Nelson’s knowledge of Baker County’s business climate, O’Reilly’s experience in business finance and Orcutt’s background in marketing, Baker County will have an outstanding trio of resources available to them,” he said.
 
The SBDC offers free individual counseling in new business start-ups, business plan preparation, financial management and general management strategies for small businesses. The SBDC also offers free and low cost workshops, seminars and courses geared to the needs of small businesses. Advising will continue to be free, but trainings, workshops and webinars will be delivered for a nominal fee.
