Chris joined A&G in 2020 as part of the company’s new Financial Reporting & Property Analysis Group. Working with team leader Doug Bennett, he has developed several state-of-the-art programs which have been vital to financial reporting and strategic planning initiatives for A&G clients.
Additionally, Chris has worked on strategic planning and new store growth for such A&G clients as rue21 and Christmas Tree Shops, as well as lease restructuring projects for Christmas Tree Shops, Party City and Albertsons.
Prior to joining A&G, for eight years Chris served in analytical and real estate roles of increasing importance at one of the country’s leading retailers, Pittsburgh-based Dick’s Sporting Goods. Chris ultimately rose to Senior Manager of Real Estate, where his responsibilities included deal-making for Dick’s, Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream stores on the East Coast, as well as making recommendations for—and executing on—the gamut of strategic real estate decisions at these brands, from site-selection, to renewals, remodels, relocations and store closures.
Chris’ earlier roles at Dick’s included analyzing markets in the Northeast and Southeast for multiple brands and, later, heading analytics efforts for those brands nationwide.
Earlier in his career, Chris served in analytical and financial roles for Belk, Inc., and Wachovia Capital Markets, both in Charlotte, N.C. He graduated Summa Cum Laude in economics from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, and later earned his MBA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
