Operations Improvement Manager

Christopher joined Active in March 2012 and is Operations Improvement Manager for the Victoria Operations team.  Chris has been in our industry now for more than 15 years.  He originally started in the private sector within a small family business from a young age, working part-time and on weekends. After studying and finishing school Chris ventured into IT and Electronic Security as an IT Systems Administrator and CCTV/Alarm Technician before coming back into the Arboriculture industry.

Chris started with Active as a Groundline/Ground Crew Operator on the Essential Energy contract in the Mid North Coast. Shortly after, he found an interest and passion for climbing, and started to ‘learn the ropes’, which eventually led to relocating to Melbourne. In this time, he has gained experience and progressed from climbing through to Operations Manager with Active, not to mention a small stint in Local Government. 

Chris is passionate about music, and the live music scene in Melbourne along with technology, all things gadgets, video games, as well as basketball and travel.
