The master of pursuing and promoting the legendary “flow state,” Chris is CM’s dedicated leader and founder. He constantly strives to grow his business and invest in the people that make it run. He aspires to a healthy mind and body, not just to beat everyone at tennis, although that’s a plus. His competitive nature makes him a passionate Vols and Steelers fan, and he enjoys golf, tennis, cardio and weights as a way to burn off steam after work. When he’s not at CM or watching sports, Chris is probably spending time with his seven awesome grandkids.
With a filmmaking degree from the Los Angeles Film School and eight years of experience, Nick is an invaluable asset to the CM video team. He specializes in camera movement and gets especially excited whenever he gets to film with the Freefly MoVI Pro. As an avid sports enthusiast, he spends his free time playing tennis, golf, and just about everything in between with his four young sons. Nick may be a quiet Enneagram 9, but challenge him on true crime or even the latest season of The Bachelor, and he’ll never back down from an argument.
As the embodiment of Kobe Bryant’s “Mamba Mentality,” Kevin works hard every day to seamlessly combine design and strategy into an effective flow between client and production. He utilizes his years of experience and industry certifications in his daily work and as a regional board member of the American Advertising Federation. Kevin isn’t shy about his love for all things NASCAR, wrestling, and baseball (Go Braves!). Though he may have a tough exterior, don’t be surprised if you catch him watching – and actually enjoying – a rom-com with his wife after a date night at Logan’s Roadhouse.
If you can’t find Reagan working on her signature thrifted office couch, she’s probably outside road biking or hiking a nearby mountain. She takes her fun almost as seriously as her work and prides herself on her ability to align client goals with a perfectly tailored marketing strategy. Her life mantra is simple; love God and love people. Only Reagan could give you a rundown of the best 80s bands one day and demonstrate her favorite weightlifting exercises the next. There is truly no one like her!
In the midst of chaos and stress, Leslie is always a reliable source of calm and control. She brings an impressive twenty-nine years of experience to CM, not to mention Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Business Administration. A native of Pennington Gap, Leslie is an outdoor advocate who will do just about anything as long as it’s outside. When she’s not crunching numbers at work, she’s likely supporting her kids in their various activities or treating herself to a fancy meal at Gourmet & Company.
The self-proclaimed CM weather tracker, Steph is a Kingsport native who earned a Communications Studies degree from ETSU. She is the cornerstone of our workplace culture where her signature sincerity has empowered our team for four years. Steph is a true outdoor enthusiast, and she’s never afraid to dive headfirst into a deep conversation. She wholeheartedly believes that whenever you think of something positive about someone, you should always share it with them! She was definitely a counselor in another life, and her positive attitude brings a lightness to the office every day.
When he’s not shooting and editing video for CM, you can probably find Jake grabbing lunch at Maple Street Biscuit Co., playing his guitar, or walking his beloved dog Ellie. He has over five years of experience and takes inspiration from his favorite filmmakers, Quentin Tarantino and Hideo Kojima. He is an adaptable member of the video team who’s always ready to help out wherever he’s needed. He never goes to a shoot without his holy grail, the Leatherman Wave Multitool, which is almost as versatile as Jake himself.
A true entrepreneur through and through, Lauren had created, sold, and started another business by the time she turned thirty. She has over ten years of marketing experience and a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. She’s a blend of an influencer, a comedian, and a late-night talk show host. She brightens the energy in every room and wants to make everyone at CM feel welcomed, comfortable and emboldened to follow their dreams. Lauren enjoys spending time with her boyfriend, dog, family, and friends. Oh, and going to concerts. She’s always down for a good concert.
A native of Phoenix, AZ, Ryan is the designated health and wellness enthusiast at CM. He regularly pushes himself mentally and physically whether that means reading an obnoxiously long gear review or completing an intense morning run before work. He is a stellar storyteller who isn’t afraid to really dive into the nitty gritty details of a project in order to bridge the gap between concept and production. Ryan enjoys watching his two kids learn and grow while living the dream (or maybe nightmare) that his kids are just like him.
Kellye is a bonafide Kingsport local and ETSU alum with thirty-two years of experience in sales and marketing. Her greatest strength is providing excellent customer service to every client, which she has done for fourteen years at CM. Outside of work, Kellye enjoys sipping on a glass of wine, spending time with her family, and jamming to her favorite Phil Collins albums. She loves to travel, especially to where she can see a Broadway musical, but her four kids and three pets keep her pretty busy on any given day.
A creative mind with a BFA in Visual Communication Design, Kristen serves as the designated web authority at CM. In addition to overall website aesthetics, she loves digging deep into website strategy and user experience. Kristen livens up the office with her singsong exclamations and signature farewell phrases, and you’re unlikely to catch her without an iced coffee or a lunch order from Barberitos. A proud Virginia Tech alum, she spends her free time supporting the Hokies (both in spirit and at games) or hanging with her husband Alex and chunky cat Lilly.
Andrea is a master multi-tasker who brings skill, passion, and genuine appreciation to her work every day. Her top-notch organizational skills are the glue that holds the custom sales team together. She is a Kingsport native with twelve years of experience and a dedicated mom of three. She appreciates a well-prepared meal at a nice restaurant (especially at Giuseppe’s), but she definitely won’t say no to a night of Netflix and Papa John’s pizza.
Isabelle has been with CM for seven years. She’s originally from Canada and graduated from Université Laval with an ESL Teaching degree, A true Canadian soul; she’ll support any sports team, so long as they’re from Canada, and her go-to karaoke song must be from a Celine Dion album. On any given Saturday, you might find Isabelle taking a long nap or watching the latest show on Hulu. She’s always dreaming about her next trip to one of the quaint Florida beach towns along Highway 30A.
