CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
A native of the Inland Northwest, Chris lives in Spokane, WA with his wife, Maria Helena, and energetic Border Collie, Yoshi. When he’s not engineering models, he can be found learning Spanish with his wife, playing tag with Yoshi, and hunting for the best sushi in Spokane.
For six remarkable years, Chris has partnered with public and private companies to provide services across an extensive variety of valuations. He’s led many hundreds of valuations and excels in collaborating with company management teams, their technical accounting advisors, and their external public auditors.
Chris co-founded VIO as Director to provide thoughtful and refined valuations to distinguish VIO from its competitors. Prior to joining VIO, Chris served as Manager at BVA where he underpinned the success of ten partners and managing directors. He also managed a team of eight analysts to deliver quarterly mark-to-market portfolio valuations to multi-national financial services and portfolio management clients.
Before entering the valuation world, Chris served as an analytics consultant in the private wealth group of a large money center bank in San Francisco. His internal strategy team provided data-driven strategic recommendations to executives and business partners. This real-world experience taught Chris how to derive insights from data and synthesize those insights into actionable results.
