Ms. Angela Till is the ACE representative for the Alabama Department of Commerce, an extension of the Governor’s office.  The Alabama Department of Commerce is responsible for leading and maintaining economic development across the state, and it directs many of the state’s primary non-educational workforce development programs.

Each office within Commerce is led and staffed by professionals ready to assist businesses with any challenge, and excel in understanding every facet of potential commerce so that the right resources and guidance will always be available.  Commerce operates two divisions: Business Development and Workforce Development.  The Business Development division is home to four offices — Business Development, Small Business Advocacy, International Trade, and the Alabama Film Office.  Commerce’s Workforce Division is made up of AIDT, the state’s Regional Workforce Councils, the Alabama Workforce Council, and programs associated with the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act.

The State of Alabama offers thousands of available sites, a proven track record of success, and a pro-business attitude that allows us to develop custom incentive packages tailored to a company’s individual needs.  Many consider the Alabama Department of Commerce as the toolbox to building a great business; they have the resources, atmosphere, workforce, and competitive advantages to cultivate growth and expansion in any field.  For additional information, visit the website:
