Chris Stovall - Chief Operating Officer
Born in Richmond, Virginia, and a Nashville resident since 1994, Chris Stovall is cj’s Chief Operating Officer. He’s responsible for overseeing all operational services—including Accounting, IT, HR, and Facilities—as well as strategic planning for cj Advertising.
At cj, Chris brings management experience and the ability to sort through clutter, see the end goal, and formulate a plan to get there. He accomplishes this by attracting, recruiting, and training talented people who share his drive for success.
In 2010, he used his leadership experience to assist cj as it relocated from Cummins Station to our current 30,000-square-foot office space in the Brandau-Craig-Dickerson Building.
Chris has a degree in communications from Southern Methodist University. He joined the cj family in 2008 and is the company’s first COO. One of his biggest tasks was to help lay the groundwork for cj and set up the organization for future success.
Outside the office, Chris, father of five, literally enjoys being outside the office. He's an avid outdoorsman, and he runs the trails at Nashville’s Percy Warner Park as often as possible.
