Grenada is a small country with a population of just over 100,000 people and at 133 sq miles is less than half the size of New York City. But coming from a small Caribbean country was not an excuse for this young man.
Grenada-born Gregg Bishop was recently named commissioner of the city’s Small Business Services agency, by Mayor de Blasio.
Mayor Bill de Blasio speaking at his appointment said “Gregg hits the ground running. His resume speaks for itself..the work he has done to assist immigrants and women entrepreneurs proves no one is more qualified to support NYC’s small business community and run the agency than he is”
