“As a team, we’re hyper-focused on providing solid client support and forging long-term partnerships. Bringing my 23 plus years of marketing and advertising knowledge to an already experienced team is a huge differentiator and benefit for our clients,” says Chris.

When he’s not helping clients optimize their online presence and improve ad spend ROI, Chris can usually be found in his garage working on his 1968 Plymouth Barracuda.

We invite you to say “hi” to Chris by emailing him or giving him a call at (401)  828-6611, ext. 257. You can also find him on LinkedIn.
