Darrell Hampsten, Coordinator

Darrell has spent his professional career assisting small business owners. In the 1990s he worked in the tax accounting field as an IRS Enrolled Agent, able to represent clients on tax audits and appeals, and earned an associate's degree in Accounting. In 2000 he completed his bachelor's degree in Entrepreneurship before starting several businesses of his own. In 2011 he "retired" from business ownership and became coordinator of the SBTDC in West Plains. Since then, he has worked as SBTDC Director in Missouri and Florida in addition to working as Director of Economic Development for a small Midwestern city. He has earned certifications as a business coach, instructor in multiple curricula, and is certified as an Economic Development Finance Professional (EDFP) by the National Development Council. He returned to West Plains in May 2018 and is completing his Master's degree in Business Administration. With a decade of experience with SBTDC and another decade of accounting experience, Darrell is uniquely qualified to help rural small businesses reach their greatest potential!
