At the age of just 18, Chris realized he never again wanted to work for anybody else, so he launched his first two businesses in 1998—one a startup ecommerce website and the other a bakery distribution company. Chris sold both businesses and founded a graphics manufacturing company in 2004 with his brother. It was in this organization that Chris honed his leadership and mentoring skills as he made the leap from working “in” the business to working “on” the business.
A decade into the business, revenue was $7mm and things were progressing much like many startups—long workdays made up of unhealthy amounts of blood, sweat, and tears. By 2015, Chris was becoming more and more frustrated with the lack of return that was being generated by the amount of effort that he was putting into the company. This was when he read the book Traction® and began implementing EOS® in his business. After implementing EOS®, Chris saw his company’s revenue double and profits triple, making the Inc 5000 multiple times. Team health reached levels he previously thought unattainable. Best of all, the accountability, structure, and process generated by running the business on EOS® allowed Chris to delegate the day-to-day management of the business and focus on his true calling: helping other entrepreneurs get the most of out of their businesses.
Chris is a Professional EOS Implementer® based in Phoenix, AZ. He has been implementing EOS® since 2015 and is passionate about using his over two decades of experience running his own businesses to help clients live the EOS Life™ by doing what they love, with people they love, making a difference, being compensated appropriately, and having time to pursue other passions.
