After his Navy career, Chris worked for a small company named Dealer Services for about five years. His aptitude was noticed, and he quickly made his way for Director of IT begin responsible for the point-of-sale system. Dealer Services unfortunately closed, and Chris moved on to one of its vendors, Cliffco, where he introduced an RMA database system using Access 95 and integrating with a Novell network.
