Chris Bloor - Sales Manager
Chris has nineteen years’ experience within the contractor accountancy services sector and joined Champion in 2009 after completing roles with other providers as well as the banking industry.
The initial role for Chris was to assist in setting up processes that ensured our clients and partners received the highest level services and this was based on his understanding and experience of what contractors and recruitment agencies require from an accountancy service provider.
Chris has now moved into a new role which means he is responsible for increasing awareness and increasing numbers north of England. His role involves speaking to potential and existing agencies and explaining how Champion contractors can compliantly support their contractors and clients through the endless legislative challenges that they face.
When he is not working Chris spends time with his wife and new daughter, as well as trying to keep fit.
