Born in Hull, Chris graduated at Nottingham University and started work at local Newspaper back in Hull in 1984. Spending his career in media ever since, Chris has worked a whole range of main Board positions in UK and Europe.

Chris has been involved with a number of Charities, but became attracted by the aims and ambitions of Young Devon in giving a better chance to those who have had a difficult start in life.

In 2002, Chris and his family moved to Devon; falling in love with the County. He has continued to live here, even though the working demands have meant lots of time away.

Chris is a committed family man with a love of sport, travel and history. He recounts being at Wembley on both occasions when Hull City qualified for the Premiership and in Turin when England last reached a World Cup Semi Final.
