Managing Director, Infinia Ventures
Chris complements Infinia’s strategy team with a rigorously business- and client-centric perspective and a flexible arsenal of marketing skills.
Equally comfortable with ideation, applying analytics, evaluating research and leading and managing content, he was formerly Senior Strategist at Havas Worldwide New York, orchestrating multichannel digital and brand strategy for several key lines of IBM business. As a freelance consultant, he has collaborated directly with the senior leaders of Droga5, CHI-&-Partners, M&C-Saatchi’s Clear and the TIAA-CREF Trust Company. His assignments have included pre-IPO brand positioning, new product development and partnership initiatives.
Prior to this, he spent five years in management consulting at Booz Allen Hamilton and IBM Global Business Services in the Washington, DC area. And somehow, he also found the time to create and run Biddlist.com – an online resource aggregating access to over 350 branding and creative firms.
Chris holds an MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business, and a BA in Business Administration from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC Chapel Hill – origin of his fatal flaw: a weakness for the sporting fortunes of the Tar Heels.
