Working on a variety of project types and delivery types, in a variety of roles, was the perfect preparation for Chris. As an operations manager, he has operational oversight for projects in the Austin region. Chris started with Beck in 1982 as a project engineer on 1700 Pacific – a fixture in the Dallas skyline. Over the past 30+ years, he’s managed complex and technical projects. He’s known for his ability to collaborate with owners, architects and engineers to achieve final designs which met the target quality, budget and schedule. Chris is a board member of the Design-Build Institute of America Southwest Region. When not in the office or on a project site, Chris enjoys spending time with his family and tackling the never-ending home improvement project list. An Iowa State grad, he proudly wears cardinal and gold while cheering on the Cyclones and serves on the Iowa State Construction Engineering Industry Advisory Council.
