As the Director of Field Operations, Chris is a key contributor to Columbia’s continuous improvement of field operations, acting as a liaison and field staff advocate between operations, preconstruction, and the executive team. He works hard to maintain and promote a healthy culture and to strengthen internal alignment. With over 25 years of experience in the construction industry, Chris is known for his attention to detail and approachable demeanor. He believes the construction industry is a "people business" and there is always something new for him to learn whether he is working on a $2M project or a $250M project. Throughout his career he has managed several project types, including both renovation and new construction projects. His ultimate objective in the field is to build high quality projects, represent Columbia in the best way possible, and make sure everyone goes home safe.
When he is not at work, Chris enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and his dogs. For Chris being outdoors enjoying fishing, hunting and nature - from the woods to the ocean – is his true happy place and his favorite way to unwind.
