Attorney Stan Hildebrand receives Rotary’s Service Above Self Award

Rotary Club of Chattanooga Hamilton Place has presented attorney Stan Hildebrand with the 2020 Service Above Self Award. The award is given to Rotarians who demonstrate their commitment to helping others by volunteering their time and talents to their club and community.

Hildebrand served as the club’s 2019-20 director of community service. In that role, he served “above and beyond in researching and coordinating volunteer service projects,” says club president-elect Beverlee Bartley.

These projects included helping disabled individuals participate in water sports, purchasing over 180 coats for local elementary school students. preparing breakfast for residents at Ronald McDonald House, assembling Christmas food baskets for Bethel Bible Village, donating toiletries to tornado victims and more.

Hildebrand also served as the club’s lead liaison with its adopted school, Bess T. Shepherd Elementary. This involved coordinating and tracking items the club purchased through a district grant in addition to organizing volunteer work at the school.

“Stan demonstrated the ‘Service Above Self’ Rotary motto as he led our club in service and sought out opportunities to serve,” Bartley adds.

Professionally, Hildebrand has served as vice president – finance counsel of CBL Properties since February 2019.

He joined CBL in 2007 as finance counsel. In that position, he served as counsel for all of CBL’s major financings, completing over $2.4 billion in commercial mortgage-backed securities and other permanent financings and over $1 billion in construction loans.

In 2019, Hildebrand led the legal team in closing CBL’s $1.185 billion credit facility.

Immediately before joining CBL, Hildebrand served as real estate counsel for Life Care Centers of America. He had also been a shareholder with Shumacker & Thompson and worked on the legal team that assisted with CBL’s public offering in 1993.

Hildebrand earned his juris doctor from Memphis State University.
