Steve Jones

City Council
Title: Councilmember - Place Five

Steve Jones moved to Gulf Shores from Guntersville, Alabama in 1991 and worked in the hospitality industry and real estate operations management before joining Realty Executives Gulf Coast as a Real Estate Sales Consultant in 2013. Prior to that he lived and worked in hotel management in communities such as Fort Lauderdale, Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Birmingham, Montgomery, Ozark, Jekyll Island, and Dallas. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Jones moved to Montgomery, Alabama in 1962 where he was raised and educated. After graduating from Auburn University in 1978 with a degree in Business Administration, Steve worked in restaurant management in Auburn before transitioning into the hotel business in 1982. 

From day one he has involved himself in our island community starting with membership in the Kiwanis Club, and has since served as Chairman of the Board for the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber, the Coastal Baldwin Educational Enrichment Foundation, and the Zoo Foundation. He still serves on those boards, serves as a volunteer Chairman for the Annual National Shrimp Festival, and is also a City Councilman. Steve believes that service is "the rent we pay for the space we take up."
