Chas Ellis

Senior Engagement Manager// “The Diplomat”

He is a graduate of the University of Mississippi and has spent the last several years in sales and management roles, leading him to his new role as Senior Client Engagement Manager. An Atlanta native, he has lived and worked in three different countries, but most recently has settled in Alexandria, VA, just outside Washington.

Chas describes himself as “fanatic” and “obsessive” when it comes to sports (the obvious and the obscure), as well as travel—he has visited 43 countries and 39 states. He shares a story about a time when his love for sports and travel collided: “I cried to a rescue elephant in Thailand after the Falcons lost the Super Bowl and was later asked to leave a luncheon for sneaking the elephant two watermelons meant for the guests.”

Other fun facts: Chas is CPR certified by the Swiss ski patrol, has a deep love for wings and 2000s Atlanta rap, and most importantly, dates a lovely Midwest gal from Indiana, so now he has acquired a passion for corn.
