Chris grew up in Danbury and attended Danbury High School where he was a captain of the football and lacrosse teams as well as a member of the nationally recognized DECA business and entrepreneurial program. He went on to attend Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut where he received his bachelor's degree in finance as well as an MBA in finance in 2014.
Chris started his professional career in the wine and spirits industry working for Irish Distillers as the Jameson Ambassador of Ireland based out of Dublin, Ireland. Since the program's inception in 1991, Chris is the only American to ever be accepted into the program. As an ambassador he was responsible for increasing brand presence across major Irish markets, driving brand advocacy through engagement of on-premise gatekeepers and consumers, and growing Jameson sales by 16% through a 12-month period.
In 2016 Chris then came back to the United States and worked as a Brand Development Manager for the Pernod Ricard portfolio at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits of New York; a $3 billion company in New York State as well as the largest wholesale wine and spirits distributor in the United States. He was responsible for 100 accounts across the lower Manhattan area and $1.5 million in annual sales. In 2018, Chris began a new role as Brand Development Lead where he managed a team of 5 individuals across 55,000 square miles of New York State who were responsible for 500 accounts and $2.5 million in annual sales. He was responsible for pricing strategies, execution of team programs, analysis of market share, and the evaluation of business opportunities and category management strategies for achievement of prospective goals.
Years of experience in service-oriented industries have led Chris to believe that there is nothing more important than pleasing customers and clients. That is the cornerstone of his business and the foundation of how he approaches clients. He is constantly up to date with local real estate market changes, passing on information so that his clients know as much as possible in order to make the best decisions. Chris is honest and forthright in his representation of patrons and places their interests above all else. He is approachable, is a problem-solver, and will always put his best foot forward in representing his clients. It is Chris's knowledge, experience, approachability and authenticity that set him apart from other agents.
