He is a graduate of the University of Colorado Business School’s Global Energy Management MSc. program, a licensed PMI Project Manager, licensed AAPL Certified Professional Landman and most recently - a Realtor's Land Institute Accredited Land Consultant. With the formation of White River, Chris is stepping back into the real estate world to serve his ranch land real estate clients with a brand of marketing unique to White River. Chris loves being a Colorado landowner alongside his wife and two daughters, and sharing the value of the Land with all those he has come to know over his life and career.
