Managing Director - Chicago

Chris Jones

Chris has been with Crum-Halsted since 2020 and joins us as Managing Director in our new Chicago branch and is in charge of growing our presence in the downtown market.  He has over a decade of experience in the insurance industry along with spending time at the Indiana Commercial Lines Producer School and becoming an Accredited Advisor in Insurance.  Outside of work, he loves to spend time with his family – his amazing wife Stephanie, and his daughter Elyse – outdoors whenever the Illinois weather allows.  Chris is an avid golfer, car guy, and runner and hopes to someday drive an F1 car and run a marathon.  He takes pride in helping business understand their true risk exposure and working as an extension of their team to implement long-term strategies to help reduce those exposures.  Chris reminds himself daily that risk management, like life, is a marathon – not a sprint.  It’s the long haul that matters, not the immediate, so we should never compromise what really matters for what may feel urgent in the moment.
