About Chris Efessiou:
Entrepreneur, business leader, leadership expert, international speaker, author, educator, radio show host, and father Christos Efessiou (http://www.ChrisEfessiou.com) knows a thing or two about success. In the past 20 years, Chris has founded, co-founded, developed, and managed multiple successful enterprises—all the while being a committed and present single parent.

Widely known for his business acumen, empowering management style, and out of the box thinking, Chris is committed to inspiring and guiding working parents to attain success at work and at home. Through speaking, coaching and his book CDO Chief Daddy Officer: The Business of Fatherhood (http://amzn.to/CDOall), he clearly defines the fundamentals of solid leadership critical in both arenas, and provides tools, tips and advice on how to transfer business skills to the business of parenting and personal relationships.

His story is a testament to any entrepreneur’s bravery and strives towards jubilation. Chris left his homeland of Greece at the age of 19 to enroll as an exchange student at a U.S. high school in the Boston area. He had less than a year to learn a language he did not speak and earn admittance to an American college or else he would be forced to return to Greece to work for his father’s company—a future that would be undoubtedly secure, yet dishearteningly dependent. Now the founder, President, and CEO of SRxA-Strategic Pharmaceutical Advisors, an international consulting, marketing, and education firm, Chris’s story is a testament to every young person’s brave first steps out along that quivering, indefinite, yet ultimately rewarding wire of risk.

A sought after mentor and teacher, Chris is a visiting professor and guest lecturer at numerous academic institutions, including George Mason University’s School of Management, and Northeastern University. A business leader and advocate, Chris serves as member of the Management Committee of the Small Business Council of the United States Chamber of Commerce, and is a keynote speaker on various topics, nationally and internationally.

Affecting future generations of business leaders by bringing CDO’s message to college classrooms around the nation is Chris’s ultimate goal. He also works with entrepreneurs and business professionals to help them develop and successfully transfer their skills from the office to the home.
