Chris started in hotels in 1999. He moved to Imagination in 2005, managing the agency's own events space, and then moved into logistics after seven years.

Boss says: "Chris is a real asset to the team and a true team player," says director Guy Stevenson. "Clients trust him and rely on his expertise and advice. I can think of no more fitting a candidate for the A List."

Best event I've worked on: I helped deliver the hospitality programme at the London Olympics for Canon.

Most challenging moment: An event in Barcelona for Ford. I was looking after transport for 2,500 delegates, with 1,700 flying in and out in one day for the conference and then another 800 staying over. We organised about 130 coach transfers.

Client I'd like to work with: A Formula One client. They're very pioneering and their event logistics must be huge.

Alternative career: I would definitely be working outdoors. Perhaps in an outdoor centre as a canoeing instructor.

Goals before 40: I'd like to do more global projects for Imagination.
