In this role, he is responsible for driving global growth and expanding the operating framework to support a multibillion-dollar business unit. Prior to Lenovo, Chris spent several years working in Samsung’s Global Strategy Group in Korea as well as in various roles at GE Capital covering the technology sector.

He has spent time raising money for sight-restoration outreaches as well exploring mobile technology applications that would benefit the work in remote areas of Africa. He now focuses on all aspects of Daybreak’s operations and logistics to ensure funds raised are deployed as effectively and efficiently as possible.
