As co-founder of WWE, she helped grow that small business from a 13-person staff to a publicly traded global business with more than 800 employees.

McMahon also ran for the U.S. Senate a couple of times in Connecticut but did not win. (She and her daughter, Stephanie McMahon, have also been MCN Wonder Women.)

“Administrator McMahon has been a fierce advocate for America’s small businesses during her tenure as SBA Administrator,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), chairman of the Small Business Committee. “Under her stewardship, optimism among America’s small business has soared as a result of this administration’s pro-growth, pro-worker policies. I thank her for her exemplary service and wish her luck in her future endeavors. Finding a successor as passionate as Administrator McMahon will be a challenge, but I stand ready to work with the administration to find someone who shares her vision and continues to bring real world business experience to the SBA.”
