Strategy and Business Development
Fast. Thorough. Sharp as a tack.
Chris constantly operates at the intersection of creative thinking and problem-solving. Equally at home working with global corporations and independent startups, Chris has extensive experience in international business, sales, and marketing. He is able to wear many hats and go to great lengths to guarantee our clients have the best experience possible. Chris is always looking for ways to develop, grow, and foster lasting relationships. And, he enjoys innovating new ways to get things done while keeping an eye on detail, budget, and timelines… all with a little fun thrown in for good measure.
Chris is one of the few (and proud) Asheville natives who’ve settled back in the mountains – thoroughly enjoying the vibrant food, music, and beer scenes here in the Land of the Sky. He and his wife Amy call Oakley home with their very spirited young daughter and German shepherd/husky/mutt rescue, Zoey. He dabbles in music and is always looking for a reason to have a jam session! On the off chance he’s not messing around on guitar or with his kid, he’s likely watching a couple racks of ribs, pork shoulder or brisket on his Big Green Egg. And if you want to debate on what the “best” barbecue is he may be able to provide some insight – since he’s got roots in Memphis, Kansas City, Texas, and NC.
