Chris Hawthorn – Sales Director
Before joining CyberCrowd, Chris spent over 10 years running businesses and entrepreneurial projects. His first venture was selling overseas property in places such as Brazil, boasting many international footballers as clients. Chris then invested his life savings into an altruistic project, setting up The SafeKnight Foundation and launching an associated mobile application, which went on to win BBC Click’s ‘App of the Year’. Most recently, Chris was in Parliament representing a company attempting to eradicate late payments in business.
Chris still intends on revisiting his passion project (SafeKnight) in years to come, and dreams of one day having the opportunity to work on it in partnership with his young daughter. Outside of work he’s recently hung up his football boots after 20 years and found himself boxing instead, managing to win his first three competitive bouts.
