Chris is a co-founder and Board Member of Concord. He is focused on executing strong processes to move Concord forward profitably.
Chris had an entrepreneurial mindset from an early age, having started a successful lawn service with a friend at the age of 16. After passing off the lawn service to his younger brother, Chris attended St. John’s University and graduated with a B.A. in English, where he studied more poetry than he would have liked. Chris married his high school sweetheart, took a job selling hunting and fishing books to retail stores. On a recommendation from Jeff Northrup, Chris was hired as a salesperson for a startup company in the IT staffing world. Eventually he went on to form Concord with Jeff and Stu.
Chris is proud of Concord’s growth from a start-up to the largest privately-held consulting company in the Midwest, but he is most proud of the people and the families he has watched grow and thrive while working at Concord, including that of his own four children. Likewise, Chris is proud of Concord’s generous community and charity support – in particular Chris is honored to support the Concord Foundation, the Spenser Somers Foundation, Edina Schools & Athletics, Treehouse, and the Good Grocer.
