Coleman Worldwide Moving President and CEO, Jeff Coleman, was recently honored at a reception presented by both the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce and the Business Council of Alabama (BCA). The reception was attended by many Dothan and Wiregrass Area community leaders along with leaders and staff for the BCA. The gathering was held at the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce and was held to recognize Coleman’s election as the 2017 Chairman for the Business Council of Alabama.
Coleman’s chairmanship honors him with another accolade as a community and industry leader. In recent years, Jeff has served as Chairman for the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, Chairman of the Alabama Commission on Higher Education (ACHE), Chairman of International Association of Movers, among other board and elected positions throughout the city, state, and industry. The chairmanship offers Coleman the chance to directly and aggressively influence the business culture in Alabama, which includes promoting improved infrastructure development throughout the state, advocating for affordable and adequate health care throughout the business community alongside Alabama citizens, and to increase support for better education pertaining to workforce development in hopes of creating skilled workers for all businesses within the state.
“I consider it a great honor to be elected to this position and to be honored at a venue where I served one of my first leadership positions for a larger business community,” stated Jeff Coleman. “With Coleman Worldwide Moving representing the trucking, transportation, and moving and storage industry, I feel presents me with a unique perspective for influencing Alabama leaders to grow and improve the state. I accept this honor with great humility and hope that we can make a meaningful impact for Alabama for 2017 and many years to come.” The Dothan Chamber of Commerce building also offers sentimental value for Coleman. It is the current home to the Dothan Business Hall of Fame where Jeff’s father, James F. Coleman, was inducted and honored in 2015.
