“Workforce, Organization, Capitalization and Compliance are the four forces of the small business economy. Each of these forces present challenges and opportunities for business owners,” stated Njenga. “Overcoming those challenges and leveraging those opportunities through good policy-making is essential. I look forward to working with NSBA as we urge Congress and the Administration to ease small business burdens and support pro small business policies.”

Njenga’s company, YellowWood Group, based in North Carolina, is a strategy development and consulting firm founded in 2003. The firm partners with business leaders to transform ideas into objectives and objectives into outcomes.

Njenga has been active with NSBA for several years and has been an exemplary representative of national and state-level small business issues. In addition to her new leadership role with NSBA, Njenga continues to serve in other leadership roles at the state and national level where she is an outspoken advocate for the small business economy.

“I am proud to work with such an exemplary group of leaders who have made small business advocacy a top priority,” stated NSBA Chair, Marc Amato. “Olalah came to us highly recommended and I look forward to her activism and leadership for years to come.”
