TESTIMONIALS

"Chris has had an immeasurable impact on our business.

After coming on as an advisor over a year ago, he’s helped us navigate the challenges of tripling our team size and growing 100% YoY to hit 8-figures ARR. In particular, Chris led the re-alignment of our value proposition, helped develop high-level strategies on hiring initiatives and resource allocation, and has brought a wealth of experience in sales, marketing, and operations. 

We’ve really appreciated being able to tap into Chris’s dual experience in running his own tech company as an entrepreneur, and his management and strategy experience as an executive at Google. The confluence of the two makes for unique insights that few leaders would be able to bring."

His leadership style has his teams incredibly loyal and focused on the task required. He is often spoken of as someone who is a next generation thinker, largely because of his global experience for strategy, digital and business processes. On a personal note, I have always enjoyed Chris's warm interactions and friendly approach to forging business partnerships. Chris is truly a talented leader.”
