About Chris

Founder of, the most realistic simulation of being an NFL General Manager ever devised. If you're one of the millions of NFL fans who think you could run a real team, we give you the chance to prove it!

Veteran of software startups and a passionate and unapologetic NFL nut. Diverse set of skills, acquired over a 25-year career. Devotee of "inbound marketing" using HubSpot's technology platform.

Originally from the enterprise software and technology services sales world, working for several startups, one of which was acquired by Microsoft. Managed the entire sales cycle, from prospecting and cold-calling all the way through to closing six- and seven-figure deals.

Previously owned a successful financial planning franchise under what was then American Express Financial Advisors. Led the effort to acquire three recently-exited entrepreneurs as clients, some of the largest individual deals in company history, winning the Chairman’s Award for Quality in the process, and consistently earning the highest possible client satisfaction scores.

Career began in corporate I.T., in a variety of roles, all involving technology and customer service.

Over the years, I have learned how to solve the puzzle of introducing a completely new “white space” service to the market. I understand what motivates people to buy and how to deliver value to customers.

Living in White Plains, NY with my two growing boys and our adopted, ever-wagging, beagle-lab Ripley.
