Chris played a significant role in helping us build a world-class company at Verio. He is an exceptional leader that can manage complex and dynamic organizations in a highly competitive environment. Chris has the requisite change management experience as well as excellent interpersonal skills required to gain the full support and respect of his managers. I attribute his success to the breadth and depth of his business/industry knowledge, strong leadership skills, and passion to win, in addition to, a personal commitment in building a healthy culture where people are valued, empowered, and supported. Chris has my highest endorsement.
