Chris currently helps leading food industry companies create value with cutting edge cryogenic food freezing solutions to achieve superior quality and efficiency advantages over their competitors. He leads an engineering team embedded within a customer facing Marketing organization where Design Thinking principles help develop innovative, cost effective, winning solutions the first time around in compressed time periods.
Chris has employed design thinking techniques over the past 25 years in a spectrum of roles ranging from Product development, Product and Project management, as well as internally focused positions in Operations and Data driven Performance Management. A firm believer that time spent empathizing, defining, and getting ideas out on the table upfront dramatically improves the likelihood initial solutions vetted through testing will hit the mark, while subpar solutions get eliminated at early stages – thereby improving the overall performance and efficiency of the organization.
Chris brings passion derived from experiences ranging from wireless telemetry system applications, deployment of retail Hydrogen fueling stations, as well as Operations Management and Data Analytics
