About me

Background

Chris is a Senior Trust Advisor with Truist Wealth. For over seven years, he has focused on providing stability, protection, and continuity to his clients’ wealth-transfer and business-succession plans. He plays an important role in helping his clients transfer assets to the next generation and beyond (including charities his clients are passionate about), ensure that loved ones are provided for, and protect and preserve business and other privately-held investments. Chris helps families manage the complexities of wealth transfer, avoid common pitfalls, and address associated burdens—especially tax burdens—by working with his clients’ legal and tax advisors. Before working in the wealth management industry, and after a one-year clerkship with the United States Tax Court, Chris practiced as an attorney in the areas of trusts, estates, and business taxation*.
