He formed BeStill Displays in 2009 and has developed many premier static and digital assets in the Augusta market.
“We are thrilled to have someone with Chris’ leadership and expertise join our team. We believe the outdoor advertising industry has a bright future, and we plan to continue growing this business,” said Derek May, president of Azalea Investments.
