In his new role, Styles will oversee the administration, finance, mission, membership, programs and services, and disaster operations departments at CCUSA. In addition to serving as outside legal counsel for CCUSA, Styles has worked on high-profile Washington real estate projects such as Gallery Place, Phillips Park, Georgetown Park Mall, and the Armed Forces Retirement Home. He also has worked with the Navy and the Air Force on base closure and housing privatization matters, has represented numerous public and private charities, and has served as outside general counsel to other organizations working to improve the lives of the needy in America.

"We are thrilled to have Keith join our internal team and expand upon his work with us.  He is well-versed in our goals and vision and his deep management legal experience will be valuable assets to CCUSA and the people we serve," said Rev. Larry Snyder, President of CCUSA.

Since joining CCUSA, Hill has been responsible for directing the organization's federal advocacy efforts; representing CCUSA on Capitol Hill and with the administration; and serving as the organization's spokesperson on social policy.
