Chris has served the nonprofit sector for more than 30 years, with much of that time at The Salvation Army. He has worked in every area of development including direct mail, planned giving, communications, and team leadership. He’s managed a personal portfolio of donors as well as teams of professional fundraisers.

 

Over the last decade, Chris has developed and honed a love of data that includes database structure and convention, data hygiene, querying, and most importantly, understanding how data can inform both the story to be told and the most receptive audience for that data-driven story. It’s no surprise that Chris works to ensure that every person he meets is provided the best, most up-to-date, and accurate information possible to meet their needs.

 

With the belief that when the nonprofit community is strengthened, every non-profit benefits, Chris has consulted both professionally and in a volunteer capacity with a host of organizations including special needs youth groups, character-building programs, animal care organizations, and churches.

 

Chris holds a bachelor’s degree education, a master’s in psychology, a master’s in marketing,and a Juris Doctorate. He is a published author, an Eagle Scout, and an all-around great guy. He lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with his beautiful and patient wife, Angela, and their two teenage boys.
