Two West Columbia small-business owners have been named to the National Federation of Independent Business state Leadership Council.
Andrew Todd is vice president Asset Management and Planning LLC, which has 5 employees. Trip Turbyfill is owner of Café Strudel, which has a staff of about 50.
The eight-member Leadership Council is an advisory board that assists the association in developing strategies to support small businesses throughout the state. Leadership Council members are nominated either by NFIB’s state director or current board members and elected by the council.
“Andrew and Trip will be great additions to our Leadership Council,” said Ben Homeyer, South Carolina state director of NFIB. “Each of them cares tremendously about the free enterprise system and ensuring that small businesses have an even playing field.
“They bring a lot of energy and experience to the council, and we’re excited to have them on board,” Homeyer said.
NFIB is the state’s leading small-business association, with over 3,000 dues-paying member businesses representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. To learn more, visit www.NFIB.com/SC or follow @NFIB_SC on Twitter.
