National Accounts Sales Manager Let’s connect!
Tony is a 2nd generation Colorado native whose life influences include a Father who was a detail-oriented Metallurgical Engineer, and a Grandfather who was a successful Salesman in an era before web presentations and conference calls.
One of the core values in the environment where he grew up was the “leave it better than you found it” philosophy. Tony has consequently always been drawn to circumstances where the goal is to add value, and he aims always to bring that mindset to the businesses and customers he has had the good fortune to work with throughout his career.
In his personal time, Tony is busy with his wife of 17 years, Carmen, raising their two ‘3rd generation Colorado native’ boys, and riding his bikes as far as his legs will let him.

Chris left the NHL in 2006, but he has continued to be a versatile player, making his mark at a variety of different companies in both sales and management capacities. Most recently, he was a National Account Executive with DTT Surveillance.
