Owner and Founder
Chris is the founder and owner at Capital Choice Office Furniture. He was born and raised in Neshannock, PA just outside of Youngstown. After his many years in retail, he identified companies in Columbus, Ohio having trouble finding economical solutions for quality office furniture. He began the company on March 3rd, 2005 by visiting and bidding at government auctions statewide, delivering and installing furniture with the assistance of his close friends and family. His all-time favorite office chairs is the ErgoGenesis BodyBilt.
When Chris is not hard at work (which is a rarity) he loves to be with his family, meet with his church group, and analyze the stock market.
My Favorite Quote: Success is not pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become

He comes to us from Bowling Green, Ohio where he studied Sport Management and Marketing. After working an internship with the Cleveland Sports Commission he moved to Columbus to be with his newlywed wife, Jessica. His favorite restaurant to visit is Yogi’s Bar and Grill off Franz Road. You’ll catch him in there weeknights to kick back with a drink and some sports.
