Principal & DFW National Accounts Manager
Co-founder of Chrane Foodservice Solutions, Christopher East graduated from Purdue University in 2000, kicking off his foodservice Rep career with Premier Equipment Group in Atlanta, then Birmingham. Following a tour of the Southeast, Chris landed in Houston where he met Duane and they ultimately launched Chrane together. When not peddling bent metal & molded plastic, Chris’ hobbies include travel, time spent in his beloved Charleston, concerts, daily reading and social time with family & friends. During the fall, while remotely rooting for his Boilermakers, he can often be found on TCU’s campus amidst a sea of purple, tailgating with his infamous party barge, Grimace. Chris has been fortunate enough to start Chrane, is surrounded by a great collection of family & friends, marry his college sweetheart Erin and enjoy great times with sons Fischer & August. Born in Fort Worth, Chris has lived in five states over the years and ultimately made full circle back to the heart of Cowtown, where he is involved at the elementary school, cheering on his sons in their life pursuits or refusing to grow up to the dismay of his wife!
