within the various firms as "franchise" opportunities. His clients have recognized
Chris for his technical acumen, business focus, and people process coordination.
Chris has tenaciously challenged himself to learn the industries of his clients,
to understand the technical and business value delivered by his "franchised"
solutions, and to cooperatively map an optimized program to deliver that value to
the client's stakeholders needs and requirements. His experience within the
IT industry has bolstered Chris' skill set to include the mature understanding
of business operations, information operations, portfolio management, and the respective
methodologies of these disciplines.

He was the co-owner of Carolina Appraisers, a real estate appraisal firm based in
Raleigh, NC. Chris was the Principal and founder of Double Haul Sales Group, an
independent sales firm for the fly fishing industry.
- At Carolina Appraisers, Chris' passion for process efficiency led him to introduce
networked technologies and data extraction/insertion from the many varied information
sources used by the firm’s appraisers. Additionally, Chris led efforts to standardize
the results of adjustment regressions, comp selection, and other such quality controls.
The business goals associated with these activities were based on the desire to
achieve a higher degree of reliability in the valuation process while increasing
the capacity of the appraisers performing work for the firm.
