Our Leadership Team

Chris Mayer, CEO – The Entrepreneurial Visionary

Chris Mayer is a shining example of what it truly means to be an entrepreneur. From a young age, his innovative spirit and keen eye for opportunity set him on a path of extraordinary success. At just 19 years old, while working for a landscape business, Chris noticed a gap in the market that could revolutionize the way plants were grown. This insight ignited his passion for creating efficiencies and led him to embark on an entrepreneurial journey that would change his life and impact countless others.

Leaving his stable job, Chris fearlessly pursued his vision and rented 5,000 square feet in an industrial park. There, he began laying the foundation for his first venture. With relentless dedication and a commitment to excellence, he transformed his small start-up into a thriving business. Within a remarkably short span of five years, Chris had turned his 5,000 sq foot rental into ownership of that same 750,000 square feet industrial park but also successfully sold his first business for an astounding $58 million.

Unfazed by his early accomplishments, Chris continued to expand his portfolio of ventures, displaying a remarkable ability to identify promising opportunities across various industries. Currently, he is the proud owner of several manufacturing companies, a pioneering plastics firm, a leading tiny home manufacturer, and a thriving marketing company, among others.

Throughout his entrepreneurial journey, Chris has remained passionate about giving back and supporting others who aspire to follow their own entrepreneurial dreams. He has invested in and mentored hundreds of budding entrepreneurs, sharing his insights and experiences to help them build wealth and achieve success.

As one of the founders and driving force behind CM Capital Management, Chris has cultivated a culture of innovation and excellence. Under his leadership, the company has consistently delivered outstanding results, providing investors with impressive returns and solidifying its reputation as a trusted player in the investment arena.

Chris Mayer’s unwavering commitment to innovation, dedication to mentorship, and exceptional business acumen make him a true icon of entrepreneurship. His story serves as an inspiration to aspiring entrepreneurs worldwide.
