Chris Elias

Name: Chris Elias

Job Title:  Customer Care Coordinator

Name of Company: Armor Protective Packaging® 

Where Do You Live: Howell, MI

Family Details: “My mom, dad and sister live in Howell, and I have another sister who lives in Pennsylvania. I live in Howell with my wife Katie, my one month old son Henrik, and our doggo Otto.”

History with ARMOR:  “I have been with ARMOR since January, 2018. I initially applied because I saw the building and liked the logo. That night I did some research on the company, submitted my job application and the rest is history!”

Experience: Before ARMOR, Chris worked for the largest paint contracting company in North America. He served as the link between the sales team, painters and the customers and did everything from coordinating start dates, to confirming job details to reviewing quotes with customers and job supervisors. “It definitely prepared me for a move into a very detail-oriented customer service position like the one I am in now at ARMOR.”

Hobbies:  “I may not be great at it, but I love to golf. We also get into ping-pong battles in the ARMOR offices every now and then. If there is a Detroit sport I can attend or watch I will do that too…yes, even the Lions!”

Favorite Food: Pizza!

If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?: “I would bring a pair of glasses (I’m practically blind without contacts or glasses), my golf bag (so I could work on my sand game) and my Bible.”

Latest Accomplishment: “We had our first child on October 18th. My wife did most of the work, but I am proud of that little dude!”

Favorite Holiday Tradition: “Every year we set up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and eat a big meal of leftovers.”

What is on your favorite playlist?  “I will give anything a listen, but right now I have been into bluegrass more than I care to admit.”

Favorite Quote: “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.” – Epictetus
