Chris Elia

Assistant Project Manager

After graduating from Bentley University, Chris began his career in the financial services industry working for several asset managers in the Boston area within their compliance departments. In these roles, he worked extensively with traders and portfolio managers under tight deadlines which required him to learn to make decisions concisely while respecting the regulatory environment as well as client directed strategies.

After working in Compliance in Financial Services for several years, he was “fortunate” to be a casualty of the market downturn. During this time, he earned a Certificate in Construction Management from Wentworth Institute of Technology and used this as a springboard to shift his career focus. He transitioned as an Assistant Field Supervisor for Chapman Construction and Design. While with Chapman he assisted on several projects in the corporate interior and academic sectors learning and utilizing his time management and creative problem solving skills developed while working in compliance. Since joining LEFTFIELD, Chris has focused on assisting with several projects utilizing the skills he has developed throughout his education and career.

Outside of work, Chris enjoys spending time with his family and coaching his two children in soccer and baseball.
