Chris is an accomplished and recognized energy professional with a wealth of business and leadership experience that has helped many scores of organizations achieve bottom line results over the past eighteen years through strategic energy procurement and related services.

Chris’s role at Amerex is to perform sales and sales support activities, provide strategic account management as well as technical and marketing expertise in support of Amerex’s evolving business strategy.

Prior to joining Amerex, Chris was a consultant for utility companies and director of sales and marketing for a successful retail electricity provider in PJM. He went to hold key positions at some of the country’s most prestigious energy procurement consulting firms.
