Born and raised in a small town in Connecticut, Chris moved with his family to the San Francisco Bay Area during his high school years. He went on to earn his B.S. in political science from U.C. San Diego, as well as a master’s degree in information science from UCLA and an MBA in international marketing from USC. After a brief stint in technology consulting, Chris pursued an entrepreneurial path, launching two businesses focused on the marketing and export of U.S. food products overseas.
In 2006, he joined Westmount and was responsible for helping to build out the firm’s internal infrastructure during an early phase of its growth. His role soon expanded to include management of Westmount’s IT development, hiring and marketing activities. Today, as chief operating officer and a partner of the firm, Chris oversees all of Westmount’s internal operations, including its compliance functions — all with the objective of making Westmount stronger and better for our clients. In his off-hours, Chris can be found on the tennis courts or hiking in the foothills above Pasadena.
