As these markets developed, with his business partner Kevin Mattson, Chris identified and refined a leading business strategy and customer service approach to energy procurement that formed the guiding principles that Secure Energy was founded upon.
After receiving his Bachelor's degree in Business Management in 1993, Joe developed significant sales and management skills through his pursuit of various business opportunities.
