New Jersey Small Business Development Center at Rutgers–Camden Appoints New Director

CAMDEN — Clarence Fullard, a Williamstown resident and licensed certified public accountant with more than 35 years of professional business experience, has been appointed director of the New Jersey Small Business Development Center at Rutgers University–Camden.

In this role, Fullard will oversee comprehensive services and programs for small businesses in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Salem counties while helping those businesses expand operations, manage growth, or start new ventures.

“Small business is the economic engine in New Jersey and I’m excited to have the opportunity to continue our focus on the creation of jobs and new business starts while offering a higher level of service to existing businesses to help them realize growth and expansion of their services,” says Fullard, who served as the center’s assistant director since 2007. “We want to raise the bar for small businesses in South Jersey.”

Fullard replaces Gary Rago, who in March was named director of finance and administration at the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden.

In his previous role as the center’s assistant director, Fullard acted as a small business consultant and established workshops for small business owners while helping them formulate business plans and financial projections.

Prior to joining the Small Business Development Center at Rutgers–Camden, Fullard owned a private accounting firm in Camden and Williamstown that specialized in business and personal taxes, accounting, and consulting. He also served as controller for the Philadelphia telecommunications services company PRWT Comserv and held numerous management positions during an 18-year career in the casino industry.

The New Jersey Small Business Development Center at Rutgers–Camden is part of a statewide network that provides comprehensive consulting services and educational opportunities to small business owners and potential owners throughout the state.  For more information, visit rsbdc.org.
