Chris brings more than thirty years of industry experience, leading complex risk and sales efforts associated with companies headquartered throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.

The Asia Risk Division will consist of Japanese, South Korean, and newly created Indian and Chinese divisions.

He brings a strong understanding of international business relations, sales development, and market penetration and branding associated with the establishment of new business in target countries throughout Asia.
