Chris joined SPMB in 2011 and has quickly progressed to become one of the firm’s emerging project leaders. Personally mentored by Andy Price, he has learned how to strategically break down markets, identify the best talent quickly and close searches.
Chris has an MBA from Villanova University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from James Madison University. While completing his MBA, Chris was awarded a Graduate Research Fellowship where he worked for prominent professors in the areas of Marketing and Public Policy.
He was also a member of the Villanova baseball team, both as a player in 2010 and an Assistant Coach in 2011. Chris graduated Cum Laude from JMU while playing for the Colonial Athletic Association Championship baseball team. Outside of closing searches you can find Chris on the golf course, running and attending as many baseball games as possible.
What sports star would you most like to meet?

England, France, Fiji, Mexico in the past year and going to cross Cuba, Italy, Greece, Australia, Africa and Iceland off the list in the next few.
