Chris’ approach to business is pragmatic and to the point. Having always been self-employed he understands first-hand the entrepreneurial nature of e-commerce markets and what it takes to succeed. A hands-on and open approach is central to his style. Asked what makes his leadership different he states his preference for clear, honest and effective communication both internally and externally as well as a core focus on service delivery; “getting the job done well, and now!” lies at the heart of his and the company’s success. Above all, Chris recognises that ProFS cannot succeed unless it’s clients do.
