MONTGOMERY–The President and CEO of the Business Council of Alabama today issued a statement following news of the death of Marty Sullivan, the former long-time Senior Vice President for Public Affairs at the BCA.

“Marty created a legacy of love, warmth, and devotion to the spirit of life. She always had a deep love for her family, her profession, and the art of communications. She allowed us to understand that standing up for what you believe was not just a responsibility but also a duty. 

“Marty is a huge part of the success of the BCA today. Her vision, her passion, and her love for making the world a better place than how she found it will be a large part of her legacy to us all. 

“Our prayers are with her husband, Hoke, her children, Martha Ann and Drew, and her entire family at this terribly difficult time.”
