Chris Chambless

As a marketing executive, Chris Chambless considers himself first and foremost an entrepreneur and storyteller. Over the last two decades, he has helped both start-ups and multibillion-dollar public companies create and deliver compelling storylines—ones that meaningfully connect with audiences to build a company’s brand and increase sales.

As one of the first employees to join Excel Communications, Chris helped the company pass Wal-Mart and Microsoft as the fastest company to generate $1 billion in annual sales. At Ambit Energy, Chris draws on this experience as he leads the company’s efforts to acquire residential and small business Customers through a growing base of independent entreprenuers.

Chris received his B.A. in English from the University of Texas, Tyler where he was named a Distinguished Alumni in 2012.


[Chris] brought us the road map of what had worked and what didn't when using independent sales consultants.
