Mike St. Charles Named 2019 United Way Campaign Chair

Wednesday, April 24, 2019
United Way of Greater Chattanooga has named Mike St. Charles the 2019 Campaign chair.  Mr. St. Charles will lead a volunteer Campaign Cabinet and United Way staff as they work toward fundraising and engaging corporate partners later this year.
 
“United Way's mission of promoting the education, stability, health and well-being of our citizenry is of paramount importance to our community, and I'm honored to serve as the 2019 Campaign chair,” said Mr. St. Charles. “The organization is a leader in promoting innovative and collaborative approaches to addressing community challenges. I look forward to working with the United Way team and the thousands of corporate and community partners to increase the resources our partner agencies will have to continue their exceptional work.”
 
Mr.
St. Charles is the president and managing shareholder at Chambliss Law. Additionally, he has served as the board chair for United Way of Greater Chattanooga for three years. "The longstanding support of United Way by the Chambliss firm and his dedicated service to United Way made him an ideal candidate to lead the upcoming campaign season," said Lesley Scearce, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Chattanooga.  We are excited to have Mike work with us in this new, yet familiar, capacity.  He truly believes in our shared vision of a community where everyone thrives. We are ready to work alongside him and see what we can accomplish together in 2019.”
 
Mr. St. Charles assumes the Campaign chair role following Michael Mathis, market president at Regions Bank, who helped raise $11.5 million for the greater Chattanooga community last year.
 
“This upcoming campaign season is a great opportunity to build on the success of 2018, led by Michael Mathis, and hit the ground running toward our collective community goals for 2019,” Scearce said.
