It all started in 2006 when Chris was in college that he was given some lawn mowing equipment and also 5 properties to mow and maintain. As time went on Chris invested a lot of money back into equipment, education, and marketing. Chris developed his core values of which customer service and correct industry knowledge would always
succeed. When he thought of the name for the company he wanted something that stood apart from the others and on the pinnacle or of being at the top. Immediately Paramount came to his mind.
Chris is an alumnus of the Colonial Williamsburg Fife and Drum Corps. He attributes a lot of his success and business values to this wonderful and prestigious program. Chris went on to Thomas Nelson Community College where he attained two Associate degrees in Business Administration and Social Science. Chris has studied at Old
Dominion University and Rutgers University. Chris’ specialties are Arboriculture, Turf Grass, and Drainage Solutions. Chris has numerous industry certifications, with the ISA Certified Arborist beng one of his top certifications. Also recently acquired was Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ) by International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
Chris was born and raised in Williamsburg and knows the area very well, from the right plants/trees to the type of plants and trees. He currently resides here with his family and 4 kids. On his days off he enjoys spending time with family on the boat or on the golf course or walking through a pretty botanical garden.
The staff Chris surrounds himself around are very motivated individuals. They strive to complete the job every day. They are very hard workers and are very humble that they can work outside and have fun every day. Our staff is made up of highly skilled individuals in the arboriculture industry and they constantly train every week to practice safe techniques. If you choose us we are committed from start to finish and never give up.
