Regional Director of the Western Iowa Tech Community College Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Sioux City, Todd Rausch, has announced that Char-Mac Assisted Living and founder, Jeanine Chartier, have been named Iowa’s SBDC Business of the Month for February. The SBDC advisory board selects an outstanding small business from across the state for this honor, and Rausch said Chartier was selected because of her rare combination of compassion, skill and tenacity combined with a fierce advocacy for the elderly. She is “A savvy, caring entrepreneur who has helped improve the quality of life in three Northwest Iowa communities while taking the time to mentor others,” Rausch said. Char-Mac’s three assisted living facilities are located in Manning, Lawton and Holstein and employ a total of more than 100 people.
