Our Staff

Chris Heinz, CSM, Managing Partner


I began my career with Westport One in 1997. I made my first placement within 9 days of starting and I haven’t stopped! In August 2000, I achieved the status of a CSAM, or Certified Senior Account Manager. This is a distinction held by less than 3% of the recruiters in the system. 

In April of 2002, I was promoted to the role of Operations & Development Manager. My primary focus is to identify top talent for our organization, manage the internal operations of the firm and provide training and guidance.

At the International Pacesetter trip in Curacao in March 2017, I was honored with the 2016 Alan R. Schonberg Person of the Year. Winning an award named after the founder of MRINetwork was a truly humbling experience.

** I do not work a recruiting desk any more. I work exclusively with the Westport One staff.
