CEO

Chris LaFay

Chris LaFay has been conducting connection and bringing heart to every interaction in his life since—-well, since always. Described by friends, colleagues, employees, and clients alike as "the best person," he puts humans above to-dos. And taking care of other humans honed his skills in the minutia that keep an orchestra humming: an eye on the time, finger on the pulse, and responsiveness and visibility with the musicians. He consistently brings the band back together, leveraging long-term relationships across a swathe of experience to empower career transitions, life event pivots, and, ultimately, an incredibly versatile, flexible, and creative team for his clients. As an alum of University of Georgia's New Media Institute, he stays on top of incoming talent and industry developments. He has owned his own business since 2006, and he sets an example for his teams in putting connection and heart first by curating his calendar to include guitar, international and domestic travel, family holidays, and industry conferences.
