Darrell Hampsten arrived at SBDC Daytona shortly after Hurricane Irma, and brought with him a background in accounting, business ownership and economic development. A degree in Entrepreneurship earned in 2000 prepared him in some way for the roller coaster ride of owning his own business, but some lessons can’t be taught they can only be learned. For over a decade Darrell has helped SBDC clients grow and expand both their businesses as well as their individual abilities. “I get measured professionally on how well I help other people succeed, and to me that is rewarding to me personally,” Darrell said. A former Enrolled Agent with the IRS, Darrell currently is certified as an Economic Development Finance Professional (EDFP) as well as in several business curriculum courses.
