Chris Quinn: How The Marines Taught Me to Lead

Chris Quinn - Vistage Chair

Chris leads CE groups, Vistage Inside groups, a Trusted Advisor group and Co-Chairs Small Business, Key, Advancing Leader and Emerging Leader groups.

Chris is the recipient of numerous Vistage Awards including: Vistage Master Chair, Pat Hyndman Award, STAR Award and Multi-Year Chair Excellence Award

Meet Chris:

  • Served in the U.S. Marine Corps as an Infantry Officer - Served two deployments to the Middle East as well as served as an Aide de Camp for a Major General 

  • As a C-level executive and entrepreneur, Chris has walked in your shoes. Like you, he’s felt the pain of hiring mistakes.

  • ​In 40+ countries, in multimillion-dollar companies, Chris has held roles from sales to Corporate Officer & President. Along the way he stayed curious, questioning hiring, retention, and management practices based on poor predictors and cognitive biases. Ever the disruptor, he moved upstream by applying science-driven insights to talent challenges.

  • ​Helping growth-minded clients find, manage, and value their talent with psychometrics and KPIs requires a dynamic, insightful approach. Chris stays close, stays responsive as clients push through often uncomfortable change. The reward? Seeing them realize meaningful business impacts.

  • ​Chris comes from a long line of independent thinkers and doers; his mother was leaning in way before it was a book. Service was also important in his family; Chris continued that tradition as a Marine.

  • ​Giving back now includes coaching CEOs and emerging business leaders. With his wife, Chris also provides marriage mentoring for engaged couples.

  • 'Chris’ Why' as a Vistage Chair is best captured in this quote from author Eugene Kennedy: "Ambition is most mature not when you know what you want and how to get it, but when you understand what you possess and how to give it"

Emily Holland quinn coaching collective north carolina

Emily Holland - Executive Assistant

Meet Emily:

  • An admin pro through and through, Emily specializes in variations—in personalities, perspectives and ideas. As she’s climbed the ladder to executive assistant at warp speed, she’s made an art of zeroing in on each client’s work style and vision to offer laser-guided support as they bring their dreams to life.

  • Emily finds Imprint’s focus on growth and empowerment incredibly motivating; she’s always enjoyed being part of something bigger than herself. Volunteer work anchored her during a rocky childhood; at 19, she struck out on her own, moving cross-country with $100 in her pocket. She survived and succeeded with tenacity and sheer determination. She learned to approach every situation—business or personal—with compassion and curiosity, honing her ability to walk in another’s shoes and find a solution for every challenge.

  • In addition to her passion for work, Emily loves exploring new places and going on adventures with her two dogs. She’s a devoted history buff (“anything about the past that helps me understand people”), an avid hiker and a coffee connoisseur.

Shannon Carr quinn coaching collective north carolina

Shannon Carr - Director, Operations

Meet Shannon:

  • She has over 20 years of project management experience. Direct, transparent, and thoughtful—sometimes referred to as a “respected force”—she seeks first to understand our client companies. What are their goals? Their needs? What’s important to them and to their success? Then she focuses on ensuring that all operations run smoothly and efficiently.

  • Shannon’s calculated yet visionary approach to process, data collection and representation is never cookie-cutter. She’s always alert to better ways of presenting data and managing efficient processes, always flexing when needed to ensure a positive experience. She takes nothing for granted, sifting through viewpoints, opinions, and perspective to produce an objective, big-picture view of organizational readiness.

  • When Shannon isn’t swimming in processes and data, she heads to the beach; water and sand are good therapy for the process and data-driven soul.
