Kennesaw State University Foundation names new chair, honors individuals for outstanding service

Jo Ann Chitty, senior vice president of Selig Enterprises, Inc., has been named chair of the Kennesaw State University Foundation.

Chitty succeeds Connie L. Engel, who served as chair of the Foundation since October 2012. The KSU Foundation, which has existed for the past 45 years of the University’s 51-year history, has been instrumental in Kennesaw State’s remarkable growth through real-estate acquisitions and construction, funding of student scholarships and other necessary financial support.

As senior vice president at Selig Enterprises, Chitty is responsible for the company’s acquisitions, development and project finance. Prior to joining Selig in 2005, she served as founding executive director and president of the UGA Real Estate Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit created as a public/private entity to acquire, develop and finance real estate projects for the University of Georgia. She handled more than $200 million in real estate assets during her five-year tenure.
