Chris is a native of Greensboro, a life-long resident, and along with his wife have raised their two daughters here. He obtained an Economics degree from Hampden-Sydney College, in Virginia, and has been in the finance and investment industry for over 25 years. He currently is in the alternative investment industry assisting small companies in raising capital for their businesses. This long history of operating in the private sector will be a great asset to the current city council that lacks the business acumen to make Greensboro a prosperous city. Chris is active in the community through Rotary and service projects. This sense of community service coupled with the business experience is much needed in the position of Mayor, both of which are currently lacking in local politics.
