After a 15 year career with Marion Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Chris started his own business, an up-scale billiard club, and he realized that small business was in his blood. Since then, he has been bringing the strategic thinking, process improvement techniques, operational discipline and implementation skills he developed at Merrell Dow to small and mid-market companies in a variety of industries. Chris has held the positions of VP Operations & Finance, VP Administration, President, CEO and owner. Chris grew up in Cincinnati, went to Walnut Hills High School and Xavier University. On Sunday evenings, you will find Chris on the sand volleyball court with his daughter, Nicole – a winning team!
