Attorney Mike St. Charles, managing shareholder at Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, has been appointed to the Chattanooga Chamber Foundation Board. St. Charles said he hopes to provide the foundation with insight into its strategic plans from a business and community perspective.
“The Chamber is instrumental to the growth of the Chattanooga region. It has successfully facilitated progress in our community by being involved in the issues that affect economic development,” St. Charles said. “These issues are wide ranging, and include education, law enforcement, health care, and transportation. THRIVE 2055 is a great example of the Chamber’s involvement in the regional planning process.”
St. Charles focuses his practice in the business and real estate areas. His business practice involves providing advice to businesses on issues ranging from startup businesses to acquisitions and dispositions. His recent business transactions include capital equipment purchasing, joint ventures, mergers, sales and financing.
St. Charles’ real estate practice includes acquisition and sales, financing, development, and leasing transactions. He’s experienced in handling development projects, as well as the acquisition and sale of residential, commercial, and mixed-use properties. St. Charles speaks regularly to trade and professional associations about a variety of real estate topics and emerging trends.
The Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce is a leading business association and economic development organization for the Chattanooga region. The Chamber Foundation is a separate but related entity established in 1969 for the purpose of economic development, which it carries out through a public-private partnership called Chattanooga CAN DO. That effort has played a direct role in supporting the creation of nearly 20,000 new jobs since 2003.
