The Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation has appointed Uptown Firm Realtor Matthew Ballard to its board of directors.

Ballard “brings a strong relationship-building ethic and long-standing experience in all facets of property management, analysis and consultation to the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation,” says the nonprofit in the news release announcing the appointment.

“It’s a privilege to serve on the governing board for the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation,” Ballard says. “It’s a rewarding opportunity to support the life-changing impacts Hospice of Chattanooga has on families who have lost a loved one.”

Ballard joins his wife, Daisy Maurya-Ballard, who also serves on the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation board. The couple co-chaired the foundation’s black tie fundraiser, Journey 2019, and will co-chair Journey 2020. The annual event will showcase Hospice of Chattanooga’s free grief counseling services for patients, their families and the community at-large.

“Matthew brings a combination of compassion and business expertise to the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation board,” says Tracy Wood, president and CEO of Hospice of Chattanooga. “He fully embraces our mission to meet the medical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients on their end-of-life journeys and to comfort their loved ones.”

Ballard and his wife have one son. In their free time, they travel the world and rock climb.
