Though Chris’s roots lie in Mississippi, he ventured to the University of Alabama and completed a degree in Finance there in 2005. Following graduation, he spent 3 years on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ leading the Fraternity and Sorority Ministry at the University of Alabama. Upon leaving campus ministry in 2008, he married and moved to Birmingham. He went to work in sales with South Cypress Floors, an e-commerce startup company, and helped grow their business tremendously. Working at South Cypress ignited his passion to see small businesses grow and succeed. Chris began searching for a company in Birmingham where he could truly put his passion to work. He found New Latitude Moving Company, and jumped at the opportunity to spearhead effective growth initiatives for the company. In 2013 Chris was named President after helping expand into the St. Louis and Kansas City markets. In September of 2014 Chris and former owner, Brad Stephens, divided the business into separate companies and Chris acquired the Birmingham operation from Brad. (Brad and his family now live in St. Louis where he runs a moving and delivery company.)
Chris and his wife Sara have two children, Christopher and Charlie.
