Founder, President & Executive Coach

An experienced investor, board member, 3x CMO, and serial intra/entrepreneur, Chris has been helping businesses and brands transform and grow for over 25 years in Entertainment, Media, Tech, and Consumer.

Life and work as we know it changed in 2020. Today, great leadership improves bottom lines and lives. The pandemic and subsequent Great Resignation made clear the future of work is about more than enabling tech and entrepreneurial ecosystems. It highlighted the emphasis we must place on intentional growth in the hearts and minds of leaders, personal well being of our employees, and cultural alignment within our organizations – if we’re to convert early success into lasting relevance.
