Correy Fuqua is an impressive addition to the Larimer SBDC team. Correy began his work as administrative assistant at the Larimer SBDC in June, 2017.
The Loveland Business Development Center has an alignment with the Larimer SBDC. With that alignment, there is great deal of interaction with the SBDC administrative staff. It has been a complete pleasure working with Correy. He has stepped into his new role with ease and competence. Some of the administrative processes can be daunting. Correy has not missed a beat in taking on the detail-laden tasks of the program.
Correy recently relocated back to the Loveland area from Minneapolis with his wife, Laura, and son, Elias. Originally from Indiana, Correy graduated from Franklin College, in southern Indiana, with a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising and Journalism. After graduating college and getting married, he and his wife moved to Durango, Colorado where they worked at a dude ranch as activities directors for 2 years.
From Durango, they moved back to Indiana where they owned and operated a salon & day spa in Indianapolis, with 25 employees, for 8 years. During that time, they also began doing small business consulting for local businesses, assisting with business plans, marketing strategy and logo design. This business experience is invaluable for Correy’s work with Larimer SBDC/LBDC clients.
After selling their salon & day spa in 2011, the next move was to Ecuador for 3 months, where Correy taught English in local schools. It was then back to Indiana, then Colorado, then Minnesota, and back to Colorado again, where they intend to stay.
There is always a great deal of activity at the Larimer SBDC and LBDC. It seems as if we didn’t fully acknowledge how happy we all are to have Correy aboard. We look forward to many years of working together.
