Chris Vennitti

EVP, Sales Operations

As the EVP of Sales Operations. Chris leads the charge developing best in class sales methodologies for all Addison Brands and leads a data driven department that delivers innovative and targeted strategies focused on cross selling, client retention, and customer recapture, designed to maximize market penetration and brand awareness.


Chris joined Addison Group in 2007 (then operating as “HireStrategy,”) and made an immediate impact in the rapid expansion and success of the contract staffing services divisions. Chris’ success in scaling the contract staffing divisions of HireStrategy was a major factor in the company’s acquisition by Addison Group in 2014. Chris was promoted to President of HireStrategy in 2016 and all his teams saw continued growth, including an expansion into the Philadelphia market. Additionally, during this time, he oversaw a successful rebranding effort for all his Mid-Atlantic groups, sunsetting the “HireStrategy” name. Under his leadership at Addison Group in 2021, the teams experienced record-breaking growth, achieving 132% of revenue target (representing 144% YoY growth) and finishing the year with $4.9M in adjusted EBITDA (195% of EBITDA target, and 198% YoY EBITDA growth).


Chris’s earlier career includes over ten years of staffing industry experience in increasingly senior positions, focused on contract and project talent solutions, including Regional (Mid-Atlantic) Vice President for Robert Half International. Originally from Philadelphia, Chris attended Villanova University and still lives in the greater Philadelphia area with his wife Rachel and son Vinnie. When he is not working or spending time with his family, you can find Chris cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles or deep-sea fishing.
