Chris grew up in Eagle the son of Gerald and Jan…original members of the “Concerned Citizens” who fought vehemently to stop the development of the Brush Creek Valley and Adams Mountain as a ski resort. He couldn’t help but become someone who had “Open Space” indoctrinated into his way of thinking!
After graduation from CSU Chris came back to the Valley temporarily until he got a real job that utilized his degree in Construction Management. Chris is still in the Eagle 30 years later having owned his excavation company for 20 years. Chris believes that his contacts through his business with developers, planners, engineers and contractors gives himself a great advantage in reaching out to the development community in the interest of “Open Space” development.
Chris and his wife of 22 years have 3 children. Zach is 20 and taking a year off from CU doing an internship in Minturn. Keaton, 18 is a Freshman at Montana State and Olivia is a Freshman at Eagle Valley High School.
Chris and his family enjoy all outdoor activities, travelling and supporting local High School Sports.
Chris is looking forward to bringing his longtime local knowledge of the Valley and relationships with longtime landowners to the EVLT Board. He’s excited to be a part of continuing the great work the Board has done over the years!
