TMB Tax & Financial Services Founder Selected for Birmingham’s first Small Business Council

Talibah Bayles

In February 2019, the Woodfin Administration launched the inaugural Small Business Council (SBC) to assist and advise the Mayor and his team on strategic and practical matters related to small businesses.  The SBC is comprised of 22 small business owners, startup founders and ecosystem builders who are interested in serving on our Council to recommend actions, policies and programs to facilitate and accelerate the city’s support of small businesses. Founder & CEO of TMB Tax & Financial Services, Talibah M. Bayles, was selected as one of the 22.

Mayor Woodfin and the Department of Innovation and Economic Opportunity (IEO) recognize that small businesses are the backbone of our economy, the pride of our families, the gathering places of our neighborhoods and the institutions that shape the quality of life we all enjoy.

“Entrepreneurs have a vision and a voice. Birmingham’s small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and the backbone of our city, and we look forward to hearing from them.’’ – Mayor Randall Woodfin

Twenty-two small business owners and supporters and start-up founders were named to the panel from 140 applications.  They will serve two-year terms.

The council will act as an advisory group to Mayor Randall Woodfin and the city’s Department of Innovation and Economic Opportunity, with the panel meeting quarterly and recommending action in support of the city’s small business community.
