Gregory Price Oregon Coast



It’s homecoming.

The Oregon Coast Community College Small Business Development Center has welcomed a new Director.

Gregory Price – a native of Depoe Bay and a Taft High School Graduate – has returned to Lincoln County to take the helm at the SBDC. He retains his title as Director of the Columbia Gorge SBDC. 

“Gregory is a rare talent, with a passion to support rural entrepreneurs,” said Dave Price (no relation), former SBDC director and OCCC’s Vice President for Engagement. 

“His professional experience is remarkable, and is just what you would ask for if you were trying to craft the perfect SBDC Director. The fact that he’s a Lincoln County native is icing on the cake.”
