Chris is the 2nd generation of the Black family to work at Hussey Seatway. During his university years where he studied sports and business management, Chris worked at Hussey Seatway during every holiday as part of the installation team. He has been involved with the business for years and has gained a great insight into the working of the whole company.
Straight from university graduation, Chris joined the service and after sales team and then progressed over the years into a sales role. Chris is now the Sales Director heading up the UK sales team for the company. He really enjoys the variety of the role and especially relishes the relationship building with clients. He enjoys seeing the project completely through from initial idea to completed seating system, transforming and providing multiple use spaces.
A notable project Chris has worked on was the RIBA award winning design for Wells Cathedral School, working closely to develop a very bespoke system. He has participated on a number of very high-profile projects including the University of Kent which had a very high specification job.
Chris is the face of the company at events like ABTT Theatre Show, ISBA Independent Schools & Bursars Associations exhibit, FSB International Trade Fair for Amenity, Sports & Pool Facilities and The Academies Show.
When he isn’t thinking about Hussey Seatway, he is an avid motorsports fan both participating and viewing. He is a keen runner and has completed a number of marathons.
