What’s up, everybody? I’m going to do a video, tell you on questions owners ask.
What industry is Birmingham, Alabama mostly made of? In other words, what industry drives this city?
And so, there are really two industries I wanna talk about. The first one is the biggest, which is UAB, the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
It has obviously a med school and then there’s obviously a University, and then there’s a hospital as well.
So, that is the biggest industry that drives Birmingham. It used to be a steel industry, but now it’s a medical industry.
The second thing is banking. It used to be a much bigger banking hub, but it’s still a really large banking hub as a result, of course, there’s a lot of consolidation of banks back, you know, 10 or 15 years ago.
Now, you’re talking about the same people are here that are starting new banks. So banking is a huge industry in Birmingham. So, that’s it.
That’s what drives the industry in Birmingham, Alabama.

Matthew is the CEO of Evernest. He is a student of the book Good to Great and is passionate about building the best property management company on the planet (and maybe even the universe if Elon Musk will hurry up). You can usually find Matthew at the baseball field with his son, at a dance recital with his daughter, or at his favorite restaurant with his wife, when he’s not in the office. And if you can’t find him in any of those places, it probably means he’s traveling.
