Chris’ strategy for increasing sales is to start with a strong and happy team of motivated staff.

Chris has had an incredibly varied background, which makes him an especially valued leader on our team. After studying pre-med and physical therapy, Chris started his career as a personal trainer and sports coach. His love of health and sports led him to Nike, where he wound up working on the marketing team for six years. In addition to his work with Nike, Chris started a business as a general contractor, and after that business grew to a nearly unmanageable state—and after Chris wanted to devote more time to his wife and son—he left the business behind for a Branch Manager role at Johnstone Supply. Several years in, when he heard CHC was hiring a management role, he jumped on the opportunity and we couldn’t be happier. It really pays to have someone with such a broad range of experiences and passions leading the team.

Outside of work, Chris takes traveling seriously. He and his wife, Amber, love taking an annual international trip. When they’re not abroad, they’re camping in their teardrop trailer, driving out to the beach with the dog, or attending their son Zak’s sporting events. Chris and his family love all of the tasty restaurants and outdoor beauty that Portland has to offer!
