Accelerating Birmingham's Regional Economy


Birmingham has more – more innovation, more collaboration, more opportunities and more potential for growth. Through competitive job creation, strategic advocacy and powerful marketing, the Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA) is on a mission to drive the Greater Birmingham Region forward. Join us as we share why strong economies are regional economies, and how you can help us craft a new narrative around what success looks like in our community.

Speaker Bio:

Steve Ammons is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA), bringing with him a strong background of experience in economic development, regional collaboration, advocacy and stakeholder engagement. Before his current role, Ammons served as a Jefferson County Commissioner for District 5, where he chaired the Economic Development Committee and the Information Technology Committee. Ammons served as the county's liaison to key economic development organizations, including the BBA, where he previously worked on projects as an active member of the Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

His dedication and leadership to public service led to numerous achievements, including the recruitment of the J.M. Smucker Company to the Greater Birmingham Region, resulting in a historic $1.2 billion capital investment. Additionally, he helped draft the Good Neighbors Pledge, a pact to combat poaching and foster long-term economic growth for the region. This initiative was eventually adopted by the entire Jefferson County Mayors Association, demonstrating his continued commitment to fostering positive relationships and promoting regional cooperation.

Ammons' passion for public safety stems from his background as a U.S. Navy veteran. He initiated the consolidation of 911 public safety answering points and championed legislation to enhance emergency management systems during his leadership at the county. Ammons also brings valuable experience from his previous service as a two-term member of the Vestavia Hills City Council, where he contributed to revenue growth and quality of life improvements for the city.

In addition to his time in public office, Ammons is also a long-time small business owner, professionally having owned and operated an employment background screening services company based in Birmingham. Ammons' leadership extends beyond professional endeavors.

He is a devoted family man, a husband and a father of four children. He and his family are active members of the Church of the Highlands, and they currently reside in the Vestavia Hills community.
