ATLANTA, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Camp Southern Ground is excited to announce the arrival of its new President and Chief Executive Officer, Michael Dobbs.
Dobbs comes to Camp Southern Ground with over 25 years of leadership experience with companies ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 and has a broad background in marketing, sales, development, real estate, architecture, construction and general management. He has also enjoyed board and committee roles in working with non-profits such as Skyland Trail, The Westminster Schools, Metro Atlanta YMCA, Zoo Atlanta and Young Life. His passion is in transforming visions into reality and serving others.
Located on over 400 acres in Fayetteville, GA, Camp Southern Ground is the passion-project of GRAMMY Award-winning artist Zac Brown and his wife, Shelly. Inspired by his own experience as a camp counselor, Zac's vision is to create a state-of-the-art facility that is more than the typical camp experience.
"I am honored to be able to share this vision with Zac and Shelly and be a part of building something that is unique and will positively impact the lives of children for generations to come," commented Dobbs.
Camp Southern Ground will focus on children with neurobehavioral challenges - specifically Autism, Dyslexia, Asperger's and Attention Deficit Disorder. Camp will also act as a respite center for military families struggling with post-deployment issues, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
"Mike is a proven, connected and passionate leader. He embraces the mission and is a key player to help Camp Southern Ground exceed all expectations. We are proud to have him," stated Zac.
Dobbs is originally from Mobile, Alabama and has resided in Atlanta for over 30 years with his wife Jenifer and their two children. He is a graduate of Auburn University and holds degrees in both Architecture and Building Sciences.
