Black History Month: Mayor Randall Woodfin

This month, we're honoring a few leaders who have impacted us, and are continuing to make a difference in the way we live, work, and lead. Whether in the small-business sector, throughout Corporate America, OR EVEN POLITICS, these leaders have used their ideas to revolutionize industries, bring together communities, and influence and inspire millions of people around the world — including us at Wildsparq. 

This Black History Month, we’re going to highlight a few of our African American friends who have taught us more than they could ever imagine.

Next up: Mayor Randall Woodfin, Birmingham Alabama


Randall Woodfin is a force. On October 3, 2017, then 36-year-old criminal prosecutor and community organizer Randall Woodfin was elected mayor of Birmingham, Alabama, unseating a two-term incumbent nearly twice his age. The Millennial Mayor is Birmingham born and raised, and -- aside from his four years at Morehouse College in Atlanta -- has never left the Magic City. The thing we love most about Mayor Woodfin, aside from his love for the city we call home, is his unrelenting passion for improvement. He is always learning, always engaging, always pushing himself and others to 'better' -- and his leadership is having a remarkable impact on the people he serves. 

Ask anyone who knows him, and they will tell you: Nobody works harder, loves more, cares more, or does more for the advancement of Birmingham and her citizens more than Mayor Woodfin. Sure, we've got a long way to go, but we think we've got the right guy at the wheel who can take us where we need to be. 

Thank you, Mayor Woodfin, for your leadership and example.
