Chris Wall grew up in Winston-Salem North Carolina. He graduated with an accounting degree at University of North Carolina, Charlotte. Chris went on to work as an accountant for this first job but quickly realized that Accounting was definitely not his career path. He then worked for his dad who was a serial entrepreneur but Chris did not like that job either. Around this time, his brother-in-law who was working at the Capitol Hill invited him to move to D.C. Chris started as an intern in Nov 2002 at the congressional office in D.C. and fell in love with the work.
What did he learn about D.C. politics and processes?
Would he recommend going to D.C. to get started in government relations?
Why did he move back to NC?
On the personal side, if he had a choice to pick 3 famous personalities, who would he have dinner with?
Let's explore into the lobbying career and personal story of Chris Wall in this next episode of State Lobbying Heroes.
