Location: Holeman Lounge

Livestream will begin 5/17 at 1:00pm ET.

Linda McMahon, the 25th Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), will discuss the state of America’s small businesses at a National Press Club Headliners Luncheon on Thursday, May 17, 2018.

Nominated by then-President-elect Trump in December of 2016 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in February 2017, McMahon advocates on behalf of the nearly 30 million small businesses in America, fulfilling the mission of the SBA to “aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests” of small businesses by offering loans, loan guarantees, government contracts, financial counseling and other forms of assistance.

McMahon is an entrepreneur and business executive in her own right, serving as the co-founder and former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). She left the WWE and entered the political ring, running in 2010 as a Republican for the United States Senate from Connecticut. McMahon lost that bid to Democratic Party nominee Richard Blumenthal. She ran again for Connecticut’s other Senate seat in 2012, but was defeated by Democratic Representative Chris Murphy.
