CHRIS HILL

VP, I. GORDON CORPORATION

Years in current role: 22

What has been your organization’s biggest success over the past year?

Our biggest success over the last year has been collectively holding it together. I’m fortunate to work with an excellent team that has mutual respect for one another from a personal and professional perspective. The earth seemingly shifted somewhat on its axis the middle of March 2020 when the pandemic started. Since then, the last two years have felt like a decade. There has been a lot of division right here in our local community, nationally, and even globally, and it’s been a fascinating period of time to experience. Fortunately, from an organization view, we’re rock solid and ready for the future.

What are your expectations for the rest of this year?

I have no expectations for the rest of the year. Having lost one of my closest lifelong friends this past fall, I have a sincere appreciation that tomorrow is never promised. Count your blessings each and every day.

What advice would you give somebody just starting out in your industry?

Listen more and talk less. And keep showing up. It’s a marathon not a sprint, and you have to earn your stripes. Most importantly, believe in yourself. That which you manifest is before you!

What is one personal goal you have for the next year?

To catch an outside set wave at First Point Malibu and get barreled on the inside section. Seriously! Traveling for good surf is my passion.

What are your favorite things about Rochester?

Its people, hands down. Folks in ROC have grit.
