24 January 2018

Savills Studley, the leading commercial real estate firm specializing in tenant representation, announced that Executive Managing Director Bo Keatley has been named to the Board of Directors for CHRIS 180, a health and human services organization serving children, young adults, and families in Atlanta.

Keatley joins a highly-qualified and experienced group of Atlanta professionals from across multiple industries. Members of the CHRIS 180 Board of Directors hold executive-level positions with some of the city’s top employers. The team meets routinely to provide leadership, establish policies and make key decisions to sustain the organization’s continued growth.

CHRIS 180, an acronym for its values of creativity, honor, respect, integrity and safety, was launched in 1981 by the Junior League of Atlanta as a community-based organization focused on the mental health needs of children in the state foster care system. Formerly known as CHRIS Kids, the nonprofit has since expanded its services to aid the needs of children, young adults and families with top trauma-informed behavioral health services and support systems.

“I am thrilled to be joining this dynamic group of Board members dedicated to advancing the purpose and ideas of CHRIS 180,” said Keatley. “The organization is wholly committed to healing children, strengthening families and building communities through counseling, safe housing, specialized trainings and community support. CHRIS 180 has transformed the lives of more than 60,000 people over its 35-year history. I look forward to serving and adding to that story.”

Keatley is a highly regarded commercial real estate expert. He brings to the Board skills in growth planning, strategy and a wide network of prominent clients and philanthropists.

“We are delighted to have such a talented group of new Board members. We have a strong leadership foundation in place and we couldn’t be more pleased with these additions to our Board,” said Kathy Colbenson, president and CEO of CHRIS 180. “Each individual brings a diverse professional background and skill set to the Board and we are excited for this group to help us continue our mission and advocacy efforts at CHRIS 180.”

Savills Studley is comprised of industry leaders and veterans who bring a rich and diverse background of experiences and expertise. With advocacy and service at the core of its business model, the firm is keen on promoting leadership, volunteerism and support of charitable organizations nationally and locally.
