An Executive Recruiter with over 30 years experience, Chris has recruited for notable investment firms such as John Hancock Company Investment Group in Anchorage Alaska to Wells Fargo Home Mortgage nationwide. He relocated to Phoenix in 1982 to start his own marketing business, resulting in two decades of business based recruiting within the Distribution Technology industry. After earning a BFA degree from Arizona State University in 1985, Chris subsequently taught e-commerce, marketing and business development seminars for local leaders in the Phoenix market.
Partnering with a colleague in 2002, Chris helped build a recruiting company with a Mortgage Banking specialty, delivering highly personalized results recruiting exclusively for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage nationwide. After successfully opening multiple states on both coasts, he focused in his efforts in Arizona, Southern California and Nevada. Chris transitioned in excess of $800 million annually in branch acquisitions, with top performers in the retail, builder & emerging markets divisions for WFHM. At the end of 4Q 2008, Chris was one of the last external recruiters actively working with WFHM as they completed the Wachovia acquisition, temporarily ending their need for additional production and growth.
April of 2009 - December 2012, Chris was with a small Texas based recruiting firm as Managing Director and contributed immediately to the company’s client base. Over the next 3 years and 8 months he placed executives, transitioned in excess of 3 billion of existing retail mortgage production, sourced acquisition targets as well as adding 9 new retained and contingent clients to the roster. His results required a client centric team approach – a massive effort on behalf of literally 100’s of quality mortgage professionals at every level within corporate America – leaders with the vision to see what is possible and capitalize on change.
