There are so many inspiring traits that I could emphasize in a testimonial to Chris’s leadership, however a single sentiment is in the forefront of my thoughts… ‘Building through Belief.’ Chris has a precise and keen eye to hone in on, and build on, strengths in individuals and teams. He then takes those strengths and builds better, moreover, successful and positive teams. I have seen Chris inspire people believe in themselves and their potential; growing their abilities further than they even realized possible. He lights a fire in people on the inside, in turn they want to succeed, not only for themselves, but for the belief that he recognized in them.

Upon speaking Chris’s name with my team, the words that kept coming up were: respected, motivating, cheerleader, and a gracious positive, uplifting attitude. Any team can do a job, but my team always strives for him to be proud of what we created, and the legacy that continues as they progress in their future endeavors.

With a warm heart I say thank you, to not only a leader, but a mentor I admire.
