Chris started working for Second Nature in the production department over 25 years ago but moved out for the industry for a few years, working in Christmas Decorations, Make Up & Satellite Equipment until his return to Second Nature in 2000. Since then he’s managed the Export Department, the Marketing Department, National Accounts & currently hot-desks between sales and marketing in the family run enterprise.
Chris says “I often joke that I’m bringing sentiment into people’s lives, but it’s actually what drives me. The net result of all our efforts from manufacturing through to retailing our cards is to put a smile on someone’s face and the GCA is a cornerstone of driving our industry forward. To be nominated to participate as a Council member is a true honour and I’m determined to help our members keep spreading a little happiness!”
Chris took over as Vice-President of the GCA Council in October 2019.
