Chris was born in Lymm, Cheshire in 1991
Chris began in primary school at Oughtrington before moving to Tarporley in 2003 at the age of 10. Chris attended Tarporley High School & 6th Form College. All through school and 6th Form Chris had a great interest in Business, IT, technology and the internet - so much so, he studied Computing, IT, Business Studies and Economics at A-Level.
At just 14 Chris utilised his skills and interest in IT to help his parents business and family friends by creating websites and graphic design for small businesses - this was his first introduction into business and was called 'Treetops Web Design', named after the family home.
Whilst at 6th Form, Chris also began undertaking first aid training and, following an increasing interest in medicine, began working for a local company called Marton Life Support Ltd in Chester, providing event medical cover to a range of events. Chris went on to working for a number of private medical providers throughout 6th Form.
Upon completion of his A-Levels, Chris had applied for a position at University to study Paramedic Practice, from his experience and increasing interest in the subject. However Chris did not manage to obtain a place at university in the year following his time at 6th Form, due to the highly competitive nature of the course. Chris dedicated much of his time working at events and providing first aid training during this year out, in order to gain experience for his application to university once again the following year.
In August 2012 Chris encountered an opportunity to acquire Marton Life Support Ltd (the same business he worked for through 6th Form and where he obtained his initial qualifications), with the support of his parents and family, Chris successfully carried out the deal and Marton Life Support Ltd became part of the Jigsaw Medical™ brand.
In the 12 months following the acquisition, we were able to more than double the companies previous years turn over, with its new team in place, fresh ideas and a passion in the entire team to succeed.
Profits for Jigsaw Medical grew 382% in 2014. Jigsaw also opened up an office in Australia in November 2014 and is recognised as "one of the world's leading medical providers", providing 999 ambulance services to the NHS, routine patient transport, global medical solutions, event medical cover and clinical education.
In the financial year of 2015, Jigsaw grew over 500% compared with its 2014 results. By 2016, Jigsaw operated from 8 locations throughout the UK and several locations across Europe, Africa and Australia; with over 3,000 members of the team - over 800 of which on a full-time basis.
eJIGSAW was born to deliver development and digital services within the group as well as providing the same incredible services to external Clients - creating another revenue stream and competing in the digital and web 'agency' world once again.
Today, eJIGSAW is a growing brand in it's own right, with an incredible team of designers, developers and marketeers who work with many high-profile clients on website, marketing and cloud software projects across many industries.
With a keen interest in music for as long as he can remember, Chris met a very talented singer/songwriter in 2014 and began supporting him informally with his career.
In 2017, Chris and James put together a talented group of leaders to form an independent record label, Jigsaw Records.
Chris supported an old friend by sponsoring him in the BTCC 2018 season. Chris has known Tom personally for many years since racing alongside him in karts whilst at school. Having been extremely successful in his previous championship endeavours all over the world, when he was told he was joining the BTCC grid in 2018, Chris felt it was a great opportunity to offer support.
Jigsaw Medical receives backing from HCRG Group and becomes a Joint Venture between Chris and the £310m turnover Health Care Resourcing Group (HCRG) alongside long-standing healthcare brands such as HCL, Team24, Allied Healthcare and CRG.
eJIGSAW is sold to a large UK organisation to become an internal-external full-service Digital Agency resource across a number of standalone Group brands, whilst continuing to service the range of SME and Blue-Chip Clients with which eJIGISAW is partnered.
