Powerful outcomes can result from the convergence of an innovative idea, a great team and a focus on disconnected communities
Chris joined Elevar in 2018 and works in the Seattle office, supporting the firm across fund administration, investor relations and special projects. As a formal social entrepreneur, he believes that: "Powerful outcomes can result from the convergence of an innovative idea, a great team and a focus on disconnected communities."
Prior to joining Elevar, Chris’ entrepreneurial journey involved working with teams to build impact-focused housing, manufacturing and education businesses across four continents. He has lived and worked extensively outside of the US, beginning at age 22 with a post-undergraduate fellowship year in South Africa and continuing with projects in Costa Rica, Peru, Zambia and Malawi. For the past decade, Chris has spent at least one month a year in Latin America or Africa in pursuit of personal and professional development.
Chris holds a Bachelor's Degree in History and Political Science from Yale University. He is a passionate fan of global soccer as well as an avid runner, cyclist and skier who enjoys exploring the natural wonders surrounding his home city of Seattle.
