I FRIDAY, MAY 30- MONDAY, JUNE 2, 2008 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE , , DESK magazine launches in Kent and Sussex counties Publication sheds light on businesses By Tom Walsh In the midst of trying econom- ic times, many Delaware small businesses are still experiencing positive growth. Mark S. Reeve, publisher of DESK magazine, a new business publication serv- ing Kent and Sussex counties, believes the secret of success for new local businesses may be found by looking at strategies that are working right now. DESK magazine released its first edition earlier this month. Reeve said there are a few publi- cations that already serve Kent and Sussex, so DESK will offer an original perspective to the business community. "DESK magazine is designed to communicate southern Delaware's business innovation, growth and success to local ex- ecutives and to national financial professionals looking for dynam- ic investment ideas," said Reeve. " "Its mission is to promote the best examples this region has to offer and create a tool for Delaware's economic develop- ment officials to communicate their organization's benefits and resources to help companies do business better." Reeve believes Delaware is a fertile area for growth. Business- es that take advantage of its many available resources will be successful in the future, he said. Subscriptions to the magazine are currently offered free of charge as an impetus to start a constructive exchange of ideas between businesses and to share positive accounts of local busi- ness owners. During the magazine's hunch May 14, Delaware Economic De- velopment Office Director Judy McKinney.Cherry said Reeve's timing for his endeavor was ex- eeUent. 'There is a gap in com- municating the great stories that are happening every day, to everyday people in everyday businesses," she said. "DESK magazine will fill that gap." McKinney Cherry said the 5,100 businesses in Sussex Coun- ty that have employees and.the 350 new companies in the area indicate a positive outlook for the state's economic sector in the near future. Iayne Armstrong, Delaware District director for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), also lauded Reeve's ef- forts. "This is a great comple- ment to the things we do at the SBA," she said. "We are thrilled to have such a strong partner - one capable of getting everyone involved, including tourism, the chambers, the small business community and federal and state governments." f THE BEST NEW HOME VALUE AT THE DELAWARE BEACHES.* SINGLE FAMILY HOMES IN PRESTIGIOUS LEWES, DE 3 BEDROOM- 2 FULL BATH RANCHERS On Acre Lots at an Unbelievable Price *Starting at $199,900" Property taxes under $850.00 annually Open Thurs-Tues. 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Tour our furnished model home Located on Route 23 South, 4 miles from Route 1 Minutes to the Beaches, Fishing & Golf Tax Free Shopping Fee Simple Spring delivery available Excellent financing available On-site mortgage broker Pool & Clubhouse Public Water and Sewer 10 Year Limited Warranty For additional information call Tom Minio today/302-644-9002 Reeve said that while econom- ic development organizations are not officially affdiated with DESK, the magazine will serve as a conduit for information be- tween them and local businesses.
