VP & General Manager

North American Filtration Company of SC (MerMade Filter)

Who is someone you admire and why?

My mother.  She was born in a different time – early 1930’s in the rural south.  It was a hard life compared to today’s standards.   Regardless, she was a true lady in every aspect of the word.  She never made headlines, but to her family and friends she was a great person.  Her best lessons were taught by the way she lived her life.  She was kind, patient, gentle, smart and multi-talented.  Although she is no longer with us, her influence continues to direct me in my daily life.   It is the greatest compliment is someone says, “Oh, you do that like your mother”.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

An airline stewardess.   The thought of being able to travel all over the world was thrilling to me so I figured it was a great career to be able to do that.

What would be your personal motto?

Treat others as you would like to be treated.


Chris received a Associates Degree in Engineering Graphics Technology from Orangeburg Calhoun Technical College.
