I have known Chris for a few years now and completed an Entrepreneurial program in which he was a mentor. The impact from a technical busine ... ss aspect as well as his willingness to help us directly have drastically changed our business for the better. I truly appreciate Chris on multiple fronts and anyone that gets the chance to work with him is lucky! Plus, he's easily accessible - and that is EVERYTHING for Entrepreneurs. Did I mention he knows everyone too?...
Saul Delage
VP, Business Development, Razorfish. Previously Senior Director, Business Development, Razorfish.
Chris brings a wealth of technology knowledge to the table. He's also continually pushes himself to think about the big picture, what comes ... next and, even, what comes after next... His career has afforded him the unique opportunity to see what's on the horizon from some of the largest technology companies in the world as well as how small, mid-size, and larger agencies and/or technology consulting firms are leveraging these tools for both corporate clients and the end-consumer.
