Mosler, president and CEO of Cushman & Wakefield, leads the world's largest independent commercial real estate services firm and serves on its board of directors. With 2007 revenues in excess of $2.1 billion, Cushman & Wakefield employs more than 15,000 professionals operating from 227 offices in 59 countries.

"We are honored to have Bruce Mosler join our board of directors," said Joseph A. Califano, Jr., CASA's chairman and president and former U.S. Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare. "In these troubled economic times, his outstanding leadership, business acumen and energy and commitment to help children grow up drug free will strengthen CASA's work immensely."

"I am privileged to join such a diverse and distinguished board and look forward to helping guide and counsel CASA to create a world where all children can grow up drug free and develop their talents to the fullest," said Mr. Mosler.

At Cushman & Wakefield, Mosler has led the firm's rapid growth, including the acquisition of the leading real estate services firms in Canada and Russia; oversaw the expansion of the firm's Global Capital Markets Group; and secured IFIL Investments, S.p.A. as the firm's new majority shareholder.

Mosler has twice received the Real Estate Board of New York "Deal of the Year" and has been chosen in a poll of his peers as the Commercial Property News "Brokerage Executive of the Year," most recently in 2008, and named CPN's national "Property Services Executive of the Year." He has been a recipient of REBNY's annual Kenneth R. Gerrety Humanitarian Award for his service to the community, and in 2008 received its Louis Smadbeck Broker Recognition Award.

Mosler serves as a trustee of the Urban Land Institute, and on the Board of Governors of the Real Estate Board of New York. He is Vice Chairman of The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, and is a member of the boards of the Urban Land Institute, the New-York Historical Society, the Partnership for the City of New York, and Duke University's Trinity College, among other civic and charitable organizations.

CASA is the only national organization that brings together under one roof all the professional disciplines needed to study and combat all types of substance abuse as they affect all aspects of society. CASA and its staff of more than 50 professionals has issued 66 reports and white papers, published one book, conducted demonstration programs focused on children, families and schools at 224 sites in 87 cities and counties in 34 states plus Washington, DC and two Native American tribal reservations, held 17 conferences attended by professionals and others from 49 states, and has been evaluating the effectiveness of drug and alcohol treatment in a variety of programs and drug courts. CASA is the creator of the nationwide initiative Family Day -- A Day to Eat Dinner With Your Childrentm - the fourth Monday in September -- the 28th in 2009 -- that promotes parental engagement as a simple and effective way to reduce children's risk of smoking, drinking and using illegal drugs. In May 2007, CASA's Chairman Joseph A. Califano, Jr., called for a fundamental shift in the nation's attitude about substance abuse and addiction with publication of his book, HIGH SOCIETY: How Substance Abuse Ravages America and What To Do About It.
