A few years out of college, Chris did something everyone told him was crazy! He walked away from a great job and co-founded a software company. The team “bootstrapped” to $2 million dollars in revenue, a dozen employees, and was acquired in year three by a public company. This launched Chris into roles at a few really big companies. At IKON/Ricoh, he led sales and marketing process implementation for a field sales organization of over 5000 reps. At Extra Space Storage, a real estate company, he led sales and operations process implementation as the company grew from 300 to over 800 locations. Through all this Chris learned he had a “superpower” for scaling businesses. But he didn’t want to just do something big, he wanted to do something that aligned with his purpose! This is when he found a growing software company called Infusionsoft. Their purpose “To Help Small Businesses Succeed” was so compelling to him, that he joined them to lead operations and systems as they grew from $50M to more than $100M in revenue. With a “small business success” fire in his belly, Chris happened on the EOS book “Traction.” He was truly amazed to find that everything he had learned about how to scale a business through 25 years of leadership trial and error was there in one harmonious system. Chris was hooked and is now on a mission to help hundreds of small businesses change the world and get more of what they want from their businesses!
