Retired executive Fred McCallum will serve as Interim President and CEO for the Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA). McCallum is retired President of AT&T Alabama and a past Chairman of the BBA.
“We are proud to have Fred join the BBA in this transitional time,” said Nancy Goedecke, 2019 Chairwoman of the BBA. “His leadership and prominence in the business community – both local and statewide – will ensure the BBA remains on solid ground during the search for a permanent CEO. We are confident Fred will set a strong example of collaboration and cooperation for the organization moving forward.”
In addition to serving as Chairman of the BBA in 2013, McCallum was an active member of the Public Policy Committee for many years and served in volunteer roles during the creation of the BBA in 2009 and in its first strategic plan, Blueprint Birmingham. He will oversee daily operations of the BBA during the search for a permanent president and CEO. During this interim time, BBA volunteer leadership will be working toward a long-range strategy for the organization and growing Birmingham’s economy.
