President / CEO
HRPro/BenePro

Steering through the possibilities and pitfalls of finding better ways to manage people is never easy. Surrounded and empowered by a great group of people helps Kris to see and find new and better ways to make that happen for all of HRPro/BenePro’s many clients. “Yes, but what if…?” or “How about we try this…” are two of his favorite phrases. And now for the rest of the story… A graduate of Oakland University, Kris grew up and has always lived in the Detroit area. He has served on numerous local boards including Big Brothers/Big Sisters, The Medhealth Foundation, Red Run Golf Club, and most recently as Vice‐Chair for Notre Dame Prep/Marist Academy in Pontiac. He currently serves on the Board of United Benefit Advisors, a group he helped to Charter in 2002 to find new and better answers for clients in the benefit space and has joined the Board for Automation Alley in Troy.

Kris lives in Troy, MI with his wife Jennifer, daughter Lauren, two cats, one dog, and a hedgehog (don’t ask!). Those who know him understand he is a CGN (Certified Golf Nut) and can frequently be found chasing a little white ball around. He has completed 3 of the 10 items on his bucket list and hopes to get a couple more in soon. Now if he could just find a way to get on at Augusta…
