U.S. President Donald Trump has announced his plan to nominate U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza to replace Linda E. McMahon as head of the Small Business Administration (SBA). McMahon will formally resign on April 12, 2019.
According to her biography, Carranza worked at the United Parcel Service for more than 20 years where she started as a night shift box handler and became president of Caribbean and Latin American operations. She also served as SBA deputy administrator under President George W. Bush. If Carranza’s nomination is confirmed by the Senate, she will be one of five women in Trump’s cabinet.
After the SBA, McMahon is expected to become part of the America First PAC to support the reelection of Trump. She was praised by Trump for her accomplishments at the SBA. She also earned the respect of Democrats for making the SBA more efficient and for expanding loans to women.
