Leadership

Chris Laing

“The best part about leading operations is watching our teams put together a custom integrated AV system and watching the job progress from design through installation. I enjoy researching and implementing new technologies that help our clients to streamline efficiencies, and at SKC we are proud of consistently exceeding our customers’ expectations.”

As Vice President of Operations, Chris is responsible for the management of operational business processes to ensure quality control and excellence in project delivery. He leads the teams involved with the project’s lifecycle from Design Engineers and Project Managers to Programmers and Installation Technicians, along with several other vital operations departments. Chris graduated from The University of Kansas with a degree in Economics in 2008, and he joined SKC later that year. He began his career at SKC as an Install Technician, and through hard work and dedication, he worked his way up through the various operations teams en route to his current position. This gives him vast knowledge and understanding of the entire AV project lifecycle.

Much of Chris’ free time is spent with his wife and two young daughters. He enjoys building custom furniture and vacationing in the mountains, near the ocean, or at his family’s cabin in the Black Hills of South Dakota. On the weekends, you can find him relaxing by cheering on his Kansas Jayhawks, exploring the Kansas City area with his family, or simply enjoying the outdoors.
