With leadership experience spanning more than 25 years, Chris has significant experience in both the retail and wholesale distribution of small group health insurance products. Chris has held leadership roles on the carrier side at Kaiser Permanente and Centene in addition to roles at a National General Agency and both the private and public commercial exchanges in California.

Over his career, Chris has developed and implemented a diverse range of product distribution models which served as the foundation of several high-performance sales organizations. Chris’ multidisciplinary approach to developing an organization is complimented by his unique style of “metric motivation” which sets the standards by which an organization can measure success throughout the sales cycle.

Chris is an active public speaker in the insurance industry and is regularly called upon by members of the California Legislature as an expert on health insurance and healthcare reform. He is a founding member of and currently serving on the CAHU Education Foundation Board.

Chris’ better half has been putting up with him for 20 years and together they are raising two daughters. Chris is an avid cyclist and this year will mark his eighth entry into the Leadville trail 100, a 100-mile mountain bike race in the Colorado Rockies.
