Senior Vice President of Client Services
Chris has been involved on the front lines of direct response fundraising since 1989, proudly helping non-profits raise many millions of dollars for their worthy causes. His experience includes a wide array of national and regional clients across many sectors, including: social services, religious, Veterans, humanitarian relief, environmental/conservation, healthcare/diseases, animal welfare, hunger relief and civic causes.
Chris is a sleeves-up fundraiser whose practical wisdom and determination shine through every step of the way. For years, clients and peers have marveled at Chris’ ability to identify and capitalize on new opportunities for program improvement — and his talent for distilling complex strategies for creative teams and senior executives alike. A self-professed disciple of data-informed decision-making, Chris is always looking for ways to scratch a little deeper for your next big breakthrough. He’s certainly earned his reputation as “a gifted strategist and tireless champion for his clients.”
At DaVinci, Chris is a leader in our strategic account services area – with direct responsibility for client programs as well as new program development. In this role, Chris complements his vast knowledge with careful listening, insightful feedback, and practical solutions. He treasures collaboration with clients and colleagues, and thrives on solving the toughest challenges (a fundraising “Mr. Fix-it”).
Prior to joining DaVinci Direct, Chris made lasting contributions at other noted agencies including: LW Robbins (RKD), Amergent, Magnet Direct, and Brickmill Studios. At every juncture, he refined and expanded his expertise in data-driven strategies; new donor acquisition and lapsed donor reactivation; key retention and upgrade strategies; as well as integrated, multi-channel communications. Chris takes a wide-view of development — with a laser-beam focus.
One of Chris’ great strengths for our DaVinci Direct clients is that he still has much to learn. This is the wonderful edge Chris brings to his everyday work. It’s his motivation for asking meaningful questions – and doggedly pursuing the answers that will “solve” your biggest challenges. As far as Chris is concerned, this is where we prove our passion and our fitness to serve you, often saying: “Our questioning matters just as much as our answering — and even more so in the beginning!”
