Meet Our Small Business Team

Meet the experienced professionals working behind the scenes to help you succeed.

We are committed to fostering a thriving small business community in Prince William County. Our small business team – George Harben, CEcD, has decades of experience in business development and have a keen understanding of what business owners are looking for as they are starting out or expanding.

We work closely with the County’s small business service providers to ensure you receive the quality assistance you need, creating a business plan, or learning about taxes. George will also continue to develop resources such as the “Tools You Need to Start and Grow Your Small Business” and provide information and referrals on doing business in Prince William County.

In June 2011, George joined the Department of Economic Development.  He works with local businesses on retention and expansion issues.  Among his significant accomplishments was the initiation of an active business retention, expansion on site call program and creation of an extensive small business and entrepreneurial resource guide.

In 2018, George was promoted to Director of Existing Business and Entrepreneurship. In his new job he initiated a program focused on small businesses assistance and entrepreneurial growth.
