Gary Blake, President, and CEO of Creative Solutions in Healthcare (CSNHC) stated, “This decision was all too easy. Chris has served at Creative Solutions for many years and his outcomes speak for themselves. We have always been impressed with Chris’s ability to interpret data and drive outcomes.
“Throughout his many years of service, Chris has stepped up in so many ways, even physically helping evacuate buildings during Hurricane Harvey. Malisa and I could not think of a more natural fit for this leadership role.”
Chris began his career with Creative Solutions in Healthcare in September of 2013, when he started as an intern in the organization’s Finance Department. After completing his bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Texas at Arlington, Chris joined CSNHC as a full time Financial Analyst in January 2014.
Chris has served in several positions for the organization from Financial Analyst, Treasurer, and Director of Operational Analytics. Throughout his tenure, Chris has used data to drive decisions, reduce costs, and improve organizational functions to improve the quality of care for CSNHC’s residents.
Last December, Chris accepted the interim CFO position and has already made progress on several important initiatives.
When asked about his new responsibilities, Chris humbly responded, “I am excited for this role because our company is filled with hardworking team members with decades of experience. I am eager to engage with my team members to develop initiatives that will set the standard for how a skilled nursing company should operate to guarantee best in class resident care and financial success. Despite being the largest skilled nursing company in the State of Texas, we must continue to operate as a small intimate company.”
Outside of work, Chris enjoys golfing and spending time with his family. Gary and Malisa Blake are grateful that he has agreed to stay on permanently and continue to provide leadership to the organization.
