Remembering Henry T. “Hank” Wilfong, Jr. June 10, 2013
Mary Landrieu, D-LA
"Mr. President, as chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, I join the small business community throughout our country in mourning the death of Mr. Henry T. “Hank” Wilfong, Jr., president of the National Association of Small Disadvantaged Businesses, NASDB. Mr. Wilfong was a valued partner in promoting, improving, and increasing opportunities for firms owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. He not only was a CPA, with an MBA from UCLA, he also served in a number of capacities for Presidents, Governors, and local municipalities. Most notably, Mr. Wilfong was the first Black Pasadena City Councilman. He was also a three-time Presidential appointee, which included the Small Business Administration’s Associate Administrator of the 8(a) Program. Later, he founded NASDB, a trade organization representing over 300 minority, women-owned, service-disabled, veteran-owned, and HUBZone small businesses."
