"While we at the Canada-Arizona Business Council know Chris' first job at hand is to increase tourism traffic to Arizona, we have found his presence in Canada to be a lot more than just that, he is the face of Arizona in Canada! A job that we think he does very well. If anything, not only do we want to see Chris continue in his capacity of representing Arizona Tourism, we would like to see his mandate expand to help the Arizona Department of Commerce in certain trade issues."

"My involvement with SeeAmerica coincided with the opening of the Canada branch of the Arizona Office of Tourism in 1996.

"In all my dealings with Chris he has shown extensive product knowledge on the destination and the properties, which would most fit into our tour programs. As a product buyer who has attended numerous trade events for many North American and European destinations the Air Canada Centre Arizona Night in January 2006 ranks as one of the best. Chris and his staff are a pleasure to deal with and no doubt have helped Arizona increase its visitation from Canada through the highly regarded annual sales missions and other marketing activities."
