VP of Business Development, Venuetize,

Speaker Bio

Chris serves as VP of Business Development at Venuetize, bringing 30+ years of experience across sports and technology. Prior to his 4 years at Venuetize, Chris spent 22 years at the Portland Trail Blazers, the last 12 as CIO, a role in which he spearheaded the team’s technology strategy and execution. From digital signage to mobility to CRM to VoIP, Chris’ vision and management established the Blazers’ reputation across the sports industry as innovative leaders. Never one to innovate “for technology’s sake”, Chris was repeatedly able to demonstrate the true business impact from any of his technology investments, thereby magnifying the impact of his accomplishments. After a successful reign at the Blazers that spanned more than two decades, Chris joined the Sports & Entertainment Alliance in Technology (“SEAT”) as VP of Business Development. After SEAT, Chris has used his industry knowledge and expertise to consult for a wide range of sports technology companies, including SKIDATA AG (fan loyalty and access control), Signal360 (proximity marketing, beacon technology, and inaudible audio platform), and Watson Creative (branding, creative services, and responsive website design).
