Chris founded ReconInsight with Kevin in 2006. He specializes in computer programming, solution architecture, and product development. He has worked on complex software systems for over 25 years.
He graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelors in Computer Science, which came as no surprise to his friends and family who had witnessed his fascination with computer programming since he was in elementary school. He started his career in the defense and intelligence fields, working at Sikorsky Aircraft on helicopter onboard flight systems. Continuing with Raytheon Systems he simulated aircraft threats in F-16 and A-10 aircraft flight simulator pilot training systems.
Chris moved from government systems to commercial businesses in the late 1990s, primarily working with telecommunication software systems. It was there that he met his future business partner, Kevin Fedorak. Chris and Kevin’s teams automated service delivery, automatically flipping the switches across several systems to ensure customer voice, video, data, wireless, and security systems were properly configured.
After working together several years, Chris and Kevin decided to strike out on their own in 2006. When asked what drove Kevin to partner with Chris on ReconInsight, Kevin shared, “Chris is a visionary. He drives the focus of Ri360’s product development. He has an unparalleled ability to understand our customer’s needs, and transform them into a solid solution.”
ReconInsight was founded to address the trend of growing amounts of data stored in all companies’ data systems. They built their own software platform Ri360 that automatically aggregates, explains, reports, and identifies data gaps. Chris and Kevin now deploy their software and solutions to more than a dozen enterprises.
In recent years Chris has been board Vice President of his local Habitat for Humanity affiliate. Home ownership has been proven to transform lives.
Chris lives in Eagle, Colorado with his wife, Brandy, and a crazy Labrador Retriever named “Tink”. Chris and Brandy stay busy enjoying the Colorado mountains - tai chi, camping, hiking, skiing, biking.
