I had the privilege to serve with Chris Jones when she was president of the local chapter of MCAI (then ITVA). She brought passion, knowledge and expertise to the role and knew how to leverage the team to get the best out of each of us. Ultimately, she re-energized the chapter by helping everyone broaden their skills and form lasting business relationships within the industry. – Steve Prather, Creative Services Director at Ecolab
