MONTGOMERY, Ala. – John Mazyk has been elected Chairman of the Business Council of Alabama’s Board of Directors, the group announced Wednesday.
He succeeds outgoing chairman Mark Crosswhite, CEO of Alabama Power Company.
John Mazyck is the owner of The Frazer Lanier Company, a Montgomery-based investment banking firm.
BCA is one of Alabama’s most influential political organizations, pooling resources from the state’s business community to support its endorsed candidates for office and lobby the Alabama Legislature for business-friendly policies.
“John Mazyck has been a dedicated leader of the business community in the state of Alabama for years,” said BCA President and CEO Katie Boyd Britt. “He has already begun to leave his mark on BCA through his innovative approach and intentional outreach to other business leaders across the state. We look forward to working alongside John as he leads our state’s business community into the next decade.”
Under the organization’s governance structure, amended in 2018, the BCA executive committee is comprised of 11 individuals. Additionally, the organization’s general counsel, secretary, treasurer, and president serve as non-voting members of the executive committee.
“I am deeply honored to serve as BCA’s next chairman,” Mazyck said. “It is humbling to have been entrusted with this responsibility, and I do not take it lightly. I believe in Alabama, and I am excited to see what BCA can accomplish with Alabama’s business leaders aligned together for progress. I believe even greater things are on the horizon for BCA and for our great state.”
