As one of Northwoods’ first employees, Chris McConnell has seen first-hand the community’s need for the programs that social services organizations provide. Today, as chief business development officer, Chris ensures that as many state and county agencies as possible use Northwoods' solutions to deliver better services in those communities.
Chris leads Northwoods’ rapidly growing team of business development managers and representatives—setting the bar for sales performance and territory growth, plus mentoring and motivating the team to achieve its goals. He also oversees strategic alliances, revenue strategy, marketing, and engagement with key stakeholders, including lobbyists, legislators, and community partners.
Chris is ultimately responsible for building a best-in-class business development team, process, and culture. As a result, he has helped Northwoods grow into a company that works on multi-million-dollar, state-wide deals, while never losing focus on the individual workers that rely on our solutions every day.
