Business Development/Account Manager

Chris is a member of our SocietyWorks team. He joined us in May 2023 as Business Development/Account Manager, focusing specifically on extending SocietyWorks’ impact in the north of the UK. 

Having previously worked within the logistics industry, Chris brings a wealth of account management experience to the organisation, which he says he’s glad to be using “for the betterment of society, rather than for the benefit of the shareholders of large corporations”.

Day-to-day, Chris supports our council clients with their use of our digital solutions, while also working closely with Amelia to drive new business for SocietyWorks, the profits of which are all donated back into mySociety.

Chris is located in Hucknall, just outside of Nottingham: “It’s a great place to nip into town, but also to head into the Peak District with Enola”. (Enola is Chris’ dog – she’s a very beautiful saluki!) 

When he’s not working or out walking with Enola, he can usually be found playing frisbee golf, climbing, kayaking or playing video games.

We asked Chris if there’s anything unusual we should know about him, to which he replied: “There are 5 people named Chris in my family, which makes things very confusing at family occasions!”

If you ever need a conversation starter with Chris, ask him about the time he saw a live Space Shuttle launch!
