Passion. Perseverance. Character. 

As a leader, Chris is known for all of these things.

If you ask, he’ll attribute this to being raised near Cleveland and witnessing “The Drive, The Fumble, The Shot, and World Series 7” game debacles, and learning the hard way from “tough teams, and tough luck” that this is how character is built. 

(If you’re not familiar with these moments in Cleveland sports history, don’t be afraid to ask. Chris is also well known as our “resident storyteller.”)

In his role as Centrifuge Media’s Event Services Director, Chris focuses on enhancing global processes and procedures carried forth by our Account Managers, Project Managers, and Event Coordinators. Chris’ commitment to execution excellence has proven instrumental in developing new client relationships and strengthening current partnerships.

Prior to joining the Centrifuge team, Chris spent 20 years dedicated to the Pharma and Life Science industries. After obtaining a BA in English and BS in Education from Ohio University, his skillset and natural drive led to and bolstered a 10-year career at a medical publisher in New York City contributing to journals featuring a variety of therapeutic categories, including CNS, Anesthesiology, Gastro/Endo, and Pharmacy.

After moving to Raleigh, NC, Chris began working for an advertising agency dedicated to the life sciences. Here, he spent 10 years contributing to a number of campaigns, websites and learning systems for a variety of major pharmaceuticals in the arenas of IBS-D, UC, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, medical devices for asthma management, postpartum hemorrhage, and PICC lines.

Chris’ extensive background in educational campaigns for pharma, life sciences, and biotech is a constant contribution to the innovative, immersive learning solutions that Centrifuge Media customizes for our clients and their teams.

Life Outside of Centrifuge:  

How does a man who has traveled the world, spent winters skiing in Colorado, and who once worked a circus snake show stay entertained outside of work? By enjoying the simple pleasures of walking or biking through the woods; enjoying sports, live music and festivals; and reading historical novels. Chris is still up for a great road trip…and he’s always happy to share a story about one!
