Chris started his professional life in 1998 when, at the age of 15, he began as a laborer at Bob Means Plumbing. After graduating from high school, Chris enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and served as an infantryman from 2002-2006, which included three tours in Iraq. Chris later served in the U.S. Marine Reserves, from 2008-2009. Chris was decorated for his service in Iraq as well as for his leadership in the Marine Reserves. Following the Marine Corps, Chris worked in the banking industry before enrolling at Dickinson College in Carlisle.
After graduating summa cum laude from Dickinson, Chris returned to his roots at Bob Means Plumbing. Chris moved from service technician to general manager and, in 2018, purchased the company from his uncle, Bob Means. Under Chris’s leadership, Bob Means Plumbing more than doubled in size and opened a full-service commercial division to complement its long-time residential focus. In 2020, Chris led a re-birth of Bob Means Plumbing with a clear vision and focused mission built on core values ingrained in Chris during his time in the Marine Corps.
Chris lives in Mechanicsburg with his high-school sweetheart and their two young boys. Chris and his family enjoy camping, visiting the Outer Banks of North Carolina and playing outside.
