Based on diverse career experiences working at GE, an internet startup and elsewhere, Chris saw a need for employers to set higher standards for employee satisfaction and fulfillment. Determined to do his part, he started SingleStone in 1997, with a specific purpose to build an exceptional place to work.
Since then SingleStone has stayed “on purpose," and been recognized by Virginia Business, Outside and Fortune magazines, and the Great Place to Work Institute as a best place to work in America. As a natural consequence, SingleStone’s team consistently delivers exceptional client satisfaction and positive community impact.
In tandem with serving as SingleStone’s CEO, Chris works closely with client executives to deliver customer experience improvements that drive tangible business results. He also advises them on transforming their own workplaces.
A native of Ireland, Chris has BS and MS degrees from the University of Scranton and is a graduate of GE’s Financial Management Program. He serves on the boards of Comfort Zone Camp, The Richmond Forum and the Virginia Institute of Autism.
Jimmy is a principal at SingleStone and leads our consulting and sales teams’ focus on the financial services and insurance industry. He’s one of those rare people who sees the big picture, but also understands the details that come together to create it. Under his leadership, our teams deliver exceptional value to clients as they ensure every problem is heard, every need is met, and every client has more knowledge and confidence after working with SingleStone.
Previously, Jimmy worked at BearingPoint and Cigna Corporation. He graduated from Wake Forest University, where he was the captain and MVP of the men’s varsity tennis team. He is a CFA Charterholder.
Jimmy is an active supporter of SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now) and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising childhood cancer research (he and his sons shave their heads each spring at the annual St. Baldrick’s fundraiser). He loves all foods, but especially noodles.

With an infectious smile, he’ll help clients navigate business and make the tough decisions that will help them succeed. He engages our partners as ambassadors of our brand, challenging them to exceed client expectations hand-in-hand with our team. Most importantly, he is a trusted advisor to his teammates and a champion of their goals and hard work.
