Chris Atkinson has possessed leadership and innovative skills from an early age. By the age of 18, Chris had completed the Eagle Scout program which taught him multiple life skills along with dedication.
As a student at the University of Arkansas, Chris gained invaluable experience as a team leader and creator of a six person group that entered the Governor’s Cup Business Plan Competition. Through that experience, Chris really got his first taste of what it takes to manage a group of people and prepare to start a business.
These activities as a young adult helped prepare and strengthen Chris in his current role as partner and the Vice President of Sales for P3 Waste Consulting (P3WC). P3WC helps businesses to reduce their trash/medical waste expenses, to become greener through recycling programs, and to handle their service issues.
Chris's background in sales is quite extensive from cold calling to creating and managing referral partner programs. In Chris’s first year with P3WC, he doubled their annual sales using his existing client base and focusing his efforts on more profitable industry verticals. To keep P3WC on the continued track of explosive growth, Chris and his team have created a dual revenue model that utilizes both recurring and lump sum revenues.
