A Fellow of Petrol Heads College and owner of a classic Buell motorbike, Chris started his career in logistics as a motorcycle courier. Following some apparently arduous year’s racing around the streets of London risking life and limb dodging through the traffic delivering urgent documents & packages he went on to develop his outstanding knowledge and experience in all aspects of Ocean freight; working for over 25 years with some of the UK’s leading NVOCC Companies. During his career Chris has travelled extensively in Europe the USA, India, China and Australia and recently visited Japan.
Chris met the ‘Other Chris’ whilst Branch Manager of the Manchester office of a privately owned Freight Forwarder and when that company was sold to an investment group they left to form Freedom.
In his spare time Chris loves pottering about in his garden, setting fire to things and planning his next adventurous overseas road trip.
Manages the whole business and the Commercial, Marketing and Finance roles within Freedom. He is keeping an eye on the road ahead while taking advantage of new business opportunities and counting the beans.
Chris has gained broad commercial experience over the last 35 years, starting his career in Freight Forwarding almost straight from school. After several formative years at the front line of Channel Port traffic he switched over to become Shipping Manager at a manufacturing company dealing with Freight Forwarding from the customer’s side, for imports from multiple suppliers in the Far East and exports to brand distributors and agents worldwide.
