Chris joined Savory with an extensive and varied work history. By trade, he’s a boat builder, but his multiple careers tell a different story. His experience comprises an eclectic list of professions, including Charter Skipper, Professional Dive Guide, Maritime & Outdoor Pursuits Tutor, Marina Operations Manager, Retail Buyer, and Police Detective (a noteworthy position that he held for 16 years) – though that’s not all. Chris has ventured into a diversity of other industries, including construction.
For 5 ½ years, Chris worked for Hawkins Construction, where he could continuously exercise his passion for learning new things. Over these years, he worked hard to complete numerous challenges and refine his skills. And eventually, when the time came for a change, he took up the opportunity to work with Savory.
Today, Chris dedicates himself to the role of Site Manager for our interiors group. As it’s a more specific fit-out role, he gets the chance to continue honing his already established skillset while working with people – one of his favourite parts of the job. And when he’s not working? Chris’ happy place is either on or under the water. He has an incurable addiction to chasing game fish. But he also enjoys spending time with family (especially if there’s a boat involved).
