VICE PRESIDENT,

ROYAL CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL

Chris is a rock star. Chris was my leader of our outbound sales team for Celebrity Cruises. Under Chris’s leadership and care was an ambitious, high energy and high performing team of over 35 of our most talented sales people. Chris is a strong leader bringing his ‘A-game’ everyday.. with great energy and enthusiasm to get better every day. Under his leadership we saw double digit revenue growth in this complex sales channel. Chris also brought innovation and great process improvement to be more efficient and effective as an organization. He led a number of cross functional initiatives for our brand that unlocked value and bottom line growth across our direct channel. I would hire Chris again in a heartbeat in my sales organization.

FLAGSHIP SALES MANAGER,
TESLA

Chris is an incredible servant leader who truly cares about the people. Through motivation and inspiration he drove the team. Chris provided me the tools for success, challenged me in ways to develop my growth as a leader, and together achieved having the location achieving target for the first time in well over a year. Chris' attention to detail, collaboration, drive, and innovation don't even begin to scratch the surface of all the characteristics that make him a successful people leader. Through deep business analytics, he helped me understand the beginning and end results needed and more importantly the "why" & "how" we can achieve those results. No matter the business or people needs, Chris was always there. Chris not only became a leader I aspired to be, but also a mentor and friend.

SALES COACH, 
TESLA

Very few people have the opportunity to report to a leader that coaches them with an endless amount of passion and dedication towards their success.  Watching him build and develop a team from the ground up provided me valuable skills that I utilized throughout my own journey into management. Chris' ability to navigate difficult situations and obtain the "buy-in" from his colleagues is something to be admired. He is insanely smart and just plain fun to be around.

SALES COACH,
TESLA

Chris delivers the perfect balance of putting people first and achieving data driven results. It was an honor working with Chris knowing he had my best interest at heart and would do whatever it took for me to achieve my best. Chris has proven he can build successful teams and generate incredible, unexpected results - I have seen it countless times. Chris knows how to exceed targets, and he does this by working diligently with his people and going the extra mile on executing the plan. Chris would be a strategic asset in any company. Chris would foster tremendous growth in both the people and business side of any organization.

SR. REGIONAL MARKETING SPECIALIST, 
TESLA

Just to get to the point, it is costing your company money to not hire Chris. If he is not on your team, you do not have the best results-driven manager, team-builder, leader, and business developer there is. If/When I ever start my own company, Chris will be the first person I reach out to help build and strategize the business.

TOP PRODUCING SALES ADVISOR,
TESLA

Chris is an amazing leader, team builder and all-around decent person. He rapidly assembled an awesome team, but more importantly he created and fostered a culture on his squad that was rare at our company. I would gladly work alongside Chris again.

SR. MANAGER,
GLOBAL ONBOARDING & GROWTH,
TESLA

Chris and I worked together for Tesla's largest delivery quarter ever. My team had a large group of re-purposed employees who needed to get up to speed ASAP. Chris was instrumental in educating and preparing our employees for their temporary roles. I was amazed at how open he was to help in every way and the partnership we created to ultimately crush our goals. I can't wait to work on another project with Chris, a dedicated and passionate leader.

Hope to have the pleasure of working with him again in the future.
