SBA’s Rickman earns NASBITE global-business credential

By Eric Reinhardt


SYRACUSE — Daniel (Dan) Rickman, international-trade officer at the Syracuse district office of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), recently earned his credential as a NASBITE certified global business-professional.

NASBITE is short for National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators, the SBA said in a news release.

NASBITE International is headquartered at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio, according to its website.

The credential focuses on global business management, global marketing, supply chain management, and trade finance, the SBA said.

Small businesses looking to increase sales and profit, reduce dependence on the domestic market, and stabilize seasonal fluctuations are encouraged to consider exporting, the SBA says.

Nearly 96 percent of consumers live outside the U.S. and two-thirds of the world’s purchasing power is in foreign countries, according to the SBA.

Small businesses interested in exporting their products and services can contact Rickman for assistance at (315) 471-9393 ext. 250.
