The U.S. Small Business Administration Mid-Atlantic Office, which serves Pennsylvania, has named a new regional administrator.

Michelle Christian, a principal in her own law practice in Newtown, takes over for Carl Knoblock, who had been acting administrator.

Christian will be responsible for the delivery and management of SBA’s small-business programs, financial assistance and business development programs in the region, which is headquartered in King of Prussia.

“Michelle is a leader, attorney and entrepreneur who understands the challenges of starting and running a small business,” SBA Administrator Linda McMahon said. “She will be a strong voice for small-business owners, and I look forward to working with her to help more entrepreneurs in the mid-Atlantic region.”

Christian takes over management of a field staff of more than 100 loan, business and community outreach specialists.

The Mid-Atlantic SBA serves a population approaching 30 million, including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Wilmington, Del., Baltimore, Clarksburg, W.Va., Richmond, Va., and Washington, D.C.

Christian, who has worked in private and public sectors, is a graduate of Seton Hall University School of Law and St. John’s University.
