The Business Council of Alabama awarded its coveted Business Champion Award to Rep. Chris Pringle Tuesday afternoon.
The BCA cited the Mobile County Republican for his “steadfast commitment to improving Alabama’s economic development, education and legal environments” at a ceremony at the Mobile Chamber of Commerce, along with the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama and the Mobile Area Chamber.
“Representative Pringle has shown an unwavering commitment to improving education, strengthening economic development and reforming our legal environment so that businesses can compete on a level playing field,” said BCA president and CEO William J. Canary.
“As a business owner, Chris understands how jobs are created and how that impacts the quality of life for all Alabamians,” said Canary.
Pringle, in his private sector work, is a licensed Realtor, home builder, and general contractor.
Now in his second tenure in Montgomery representing District 101, Pringle also served in the Alabama House from 1992 until 2004. He is vice chairman of the House State Government Committee.
