Just keep reading below.
After selling a startup company in the 1990’s, Chris actually got involved in this field by chance. His next-door neighbor at the time convinced him to come work for Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds; he needed help with his small business and knew that Chris had plenty of experience already with both woodworking and managing businesses. He started out working in installation and then moved into sales later on. Through his devotion to the work and deep understanding of the craft, he was made a full partner in 2005!
Growing up, Chris’s father and grandfather were constantly designing, tinkering, and working with wood and other similar materials. They taught him all about design and troubleshooting throughout his formative years, and as an adult, he approached his own work with this same important form of thinking. Today, his mechanically gifted mind and humble disposition make him an indisputable asset at Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds.
In his spare time, Chris’s hobbies include cycling, coaching sports, and spending quality time with his loved ones. He and his wife also enjoy building all sorts of interesting projects together at home.
