Paula Scott named as executive director of The BCE

Bluffton Center for Entrepreneurs president Dick McGarrity introduced a new executive director, Paula Scott, at the April 12 Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting.

The new half-time appointment will be coordinated with Scott’s other half-time job as CEO of the local chamber of commerce. In fact, Scott simply flipped over her badge to show that one side says BCE and the other says Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce. Scott previously served as communications director for the business incubator and has operated her own digital marketing business.

“I will, first of all, be reconnecting with all of the Business Plan Competition participants that have worked with The BCE over the last 10 years,” announced Scott. “There is a strong interest in having a reunion. I’ll also be providing feedback and mentoring opportunities for start-ups and new businesses, as well as educational opportunities.”

Scott is available for consultations during days and evenings. She also coordinates roundtable discussions with the 12 members of the board of directors and other BCE supporters, which includes financial advisors, educators, entrepreneurs, and local business managers. The BCE team also includes executive assistant Nicole McConnehea. To contact The BCE, call (567) 525-6667 or email
