Anyone trying to find new services to supplement their enrollment efforts needs a Chris Coons on their side. As our Director of Business Development, Chris works with institutions to find exactly what services will fit their needs. If there’s something we offer that needs to change based on your business process or budget, Chris is ready to work with you and the rest of the Underscore team to make sure we’re giving you exactly what you’re need to make the most of your Slate instance. Chris also comes with more than 25 years of higher ed experience and the added perk of being well versed in name-buy strategy. He’ll work with you and your Underscore team to make sure the students in your funnel will yield significant results.

When Chris isn’t setting up institutions for success, you can find him:

1.       Giving his lab Hershey all the attention she deserves

2.       Learning his way around Charlotte, NC after relocating from New York

3.       Attending yet another Warped Tour

4.       Enjoying a beer at a baseball game

5.       Making the Underscore team hungry with pictures of his signature dish: Cajun Shrimp and Rice

How is Chris conquering quarantine?

By hosting Zoom calls with his closest friends and spending some quality time with Hershey!
