Chris has been the Publisher of TheHomeMag since 2007 when his parents Dain and Karen bought the Kansas City franchise. Chris’ background in marketing agencies and client service allowed him to step right into the role of both working with prospective advertisers on their campaigns and running the business. When the business was sold in 2015 the new ownership group asked that he stay on in his role because of the relationships he had built. In that same year Chris convinced ownership to invest in the launch of the St. Louis market. In June of 2015 TheHomeMag St. Louis delivered it’s first issue. Chris’ role has always been focused on how to improve the client experience and ensuring that TheHomeMag was being delivered to the right audience.
Chris’ passion for TheHomeMag and the success of it’s clients have always driven his efforts. In November of 2019 Chris along with a partner acquired TheHomeMag Kansas City and St. Louis bringing the business back into the family. While his playing and coaching days are over, when he’s not working you can usually catch him either driving to watch his boys play or on a patio rooting for his favorite professional and college teams.
