New BCA President Helena Duncan calls for continuation of economic incentives, says Alabama is open for business

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The new president of the influential Business Council of Alabama has hit the ground running since starting in December.

President and CEO Helena Duncan is no stranger to the council or the business needs of Alabama. Before joining the BCA, she built a 35-year career as a banker in the Montgomery area, working with businesses to identify their needs — a skill she said transferred into her current role.

“I was able to convert that over here and take that knowledge and apply it to what BCA’s mission is,” Duncan said.

Duncan joined the BCA in 2020, eventually working her way up to president. Since taking the helm, Duncan said she’s spent time meeting with state leaders, pushing for funding to incentivize businesses to move to Alabama.
