WASHINGTON - December 3, 2019 - ( )

†‹Ali Akil, Chief Vision Officer of Public Bloc, Inc. from Cleveland, Ohio, was recently named to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Akil, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins the NSBA Leadership Council alongside other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.

“As a small-business owner, I see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,† stated Akil. “Joining NSBA’s Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective small-business message to the people that need to hear it most: Congress.†

Akil grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. Akil stated, “My mother and family are the real MVPs. They taught me the value of hard work, service, wit and, above all else, grit - being a business leader requires all of those qualities.† Akil went on to serve in the U.S. Army and attained his MBA from Case Western University. He was also an account executive at IBM and an analyst for the U.S. Treasury Department.

Akil joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of his efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small business, including tax reform, health care costs, trade, IP/data protection, and transparency in regulatory issues that impact small businesses.  

The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small business a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.

“I am proud to have Ali Akil as part of our Leadership Council,† stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “Ali came to us highly recommended and I look forward to our coordinated efforts for years to come.†
