Rochester Hills Businessman Will Lead County's 'One-Stop Shop' Biz Center

Greg Doyle will work with business counselors to help start-up and second-stage businesses succeed.

A Rochester Hills business and community leader has been chosen to lead an Oakland County initiative designed to help small businesses. 

Greg Doyle, a former president of the Rochester-Avon Historical Society, and former member of the Rochester Downtown Development Authority, will direct the county's One Stop Shop Business Center

Doyle, 52, is a certified Michigan Small Business Counselor who has worked with small business and entrepreneurs for more than 20 years, according to a news release from the county. He has spent the past four years as a small business counselor for the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center. 

The One Stop Shop Business Center helps with business or community planning needs. It is located on the county government campus. In his State of the County address last week, Patterson emphasized the county's success story of business and economic development. Last year, the city of Rochester was named a "One Stop Ready" community for new business attraction, as an extension of the business center.

In his role, Doyle, will lead a team of business counselors who work with start-up and second-stages businesses to help them succeed. 

“I really enjoy working for Oakland County with all the resources they have here,” Doyle said in a statement. “The reputation the county has is phenomenal and with the team of people we have and all their sources, we can help people in a significant way.”
