VP of Client Success | Official Member-Forbes Business Development Council | Mixed Martial Arts Black Belt | Motocross Racer
As Gorilla Logic’s Executive responsible for new client acquisition and growth, Chris leverages his business acumen and passion for helping others. He coaches the sales team and guides Gorilla Logic clients in reaching their maximum potential through partnering on enterprise application development.
Chris learned the values of integrity, perseverance, and commitment to success at an early age through mixed martial arts. He earned his first-degree black belt at the age of 12 and quickly began teaching classes. This achievement sparked a passion for coaching others to success. So, Chris began his professional career running a Motocross training and coaching company while also partaking in the sport himself. While Chris traded in his racing bike for a laptop (at least during the workweek), his competitive streak is still intact. Which is one of the reasons he enjoys being a Gorilla.
Chris joined Gorilla Logic after serving as director of global business development for a technology solutions provider. As Chris recalls, “I heard a lot of great things about Gorilla Logic through personal connections. I was really impressed with Gorilla Logic’s ongoing client base without having a formalized sales team or process—it really speaks to how well they have served clients. After I met with the team, I knew it was a perfect fit.”
“A Gorilla is somebody who is driven to be the best they can possibly be. They aspire to achieve a higher level of success that isn’t always found in other tech companies,” Chris observes. “You can see it in the culture, with the people, and how we work with clients. It’s an environment where I can continue to learn and grow; I’m always competing against myself.”
Outside of Gorilla Logic, Chris balances family time with giving back to his community through organizations such as Hope House for Colorado. While he still loves to ride his motorcycle, Chris is also an avid surfer. Vacations often mean heading to Hanalei Bay in Kauai to shred some waves.
