Managing Broker Rudy Walldorf said, “We are thrilled to have Blair join our professional team at Herman Walldorf Commercial. She is very knowledgeable about the local market, and her retail match-making expertise will help us continue our excellent service to our clients.” 

Ms. Mard joined River City Company from CreateHere, where she played a part in the community visioning project, STAND, which gathered feedback from over 26,000 area residents and made the resulting data available to the public to promote community-based action. 

Ms. Mard is a founding board member of Rotaract and also serves on the board of the Downtown Council for the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce. She also serves with the Austin Hatcher Foundation, the Junior League of Chattanooga, and the Chattanooga Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
