Burr's Ed Christian Graduates from Leadership Birmingham
Burr & Forman is pleased to announce that our CEO and managing partner Ed Christian has graduated from Leadership Birmingham. The program is designed by past graduates and experts to explore the community’s critical issues in education, government, health care, social services, diversity, criminal justice, economic development, and quality of life. As a member of the Class of 2023, Ed participated in series of monthly, issue-oriented forums that center on the belief that knowledge is a key element and prime motivator of leadership.
“Our firm is committed to serving the people of Birmingham. That commitment begins with education and awareness of the most pressing challenges facing our community,“ Christian said. “I am humbled to have been able to collaborate with such high-caliber professionals who are equally dedicated to civic engagement for the betterment of this city."
In addition to his firm leadership responsibilities, Ed serves as a member of Burr's Corporate and Tax Practice Group, where he counsels a variety of privately held companies regarding mergers & acquisitions as well as general business, corporate, and contractual matters. With a love for learning his client’s business, he works alongside stakeholders to build seamless partnerships that allow him to take a “yes, and…” approach to finding ways forward.
