Chris Cunningham graduated from Virginia Tech with a double major in Business Management and Global Business. He started his tech career at Cvent, where he became one of their youngest managers and helped them grow as they went public (NYSE). Currently, he’s Vice President of Business Development at Elevator Studio and runs massive influencer marketing
campaigns for Dan Blitzerian’s Ignite, LYFT, 1st Phorm, and many more!

What does Elevator Studio do?

Elevator helps companies grow their social media presence and gain followers through influencer marketing. Our agency spent over $60 million in 2019 on influencer campaigns in industries including protein, CBD, fashion, movies, apps, alcohol, and more.

What’s the biggest professional risk you’ve taken?

Leaving a company I helped start and forgoing half of my shares to move to LA and work at Elevator was a pretty large risk. It was extremely scary, but it felt great to take such a risk and dive right in. I think it’s safe to say my biggest risk was also one of my best.

What’s your definition of success?

Progressing every day and truly feeling good about who I am and what I do. I’ve been very lucky to get to do that with Elevator.
