Khris Fenton

VP, Sales Development and Partnerships
When Khris was in the 5th grade, he realized he could make a profit by selling candy to his classmates by undercutting the school vending machine – and he was sold. Since then, he has been focused on finding win-win outcomes for his customers and putting their goals first. Sales have been (and likely always will) be his job, and he’s on a crusade to change the preconceived notions that people have of salespeople. As his career has matured into selling to large companies, he has become fascinated with learning about how different businesses thrive (or survive) – so that he can not only help his clients investigate business cases/concepts, but also use his learnings as a future founder. On the personal side, he’s a lifelong fan of underperforming playoff teams (Atlanta Braves, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Capitals), the dad of a Golden Retriever named Chipper, and husband to an amazing wife. He prides himself on being transparent, (brutally and tactfully) honest, and logical.
