Bryan Christensen, President of ATC

Bryan Christensen, President and Senior Consultant

If you’ve met Bryan, you probably already know he has a heart for service. It began to develop when he was a teenager, with his work toward becoming an Eagle Scout, and solidified while serving his country as a Corpsman in the U.S. Navy, where he saved lives and helped people who were hurting or needed aid.

It was during his time in the Navy that he found a love for technology. Almost overnight, he went from being “a medic” to “an IT guy” when the Navy computerized its systems. He developed an early focus not on the individual device or software but on the big picture of how people and businesses benefit from holistic solutions.

Bryan founded CHR in 2007 to bring together his passions for helping others and for technology. He loves knowing he can make a difference for his clients every day. He admires the way technology can enable business successes and thrives on helping people and companies grow in their understanding and use of technology.

As president and senior consultant, Bryan manages CHR’s day-to-day sales and technical operations and serves as the customer’s main contact for all projects and engagements. He has an extensive background in IT management and systems security with an emphasis on multi-site wide area communications systems. He holds both a clinical and a didactic counseling certificate from the U.S. Navy and has certificates in consulting from Microsoft Professional Services and Franklin Covey Consulting. Bryan also has earned many technical and engineering certificates from Novel, Microsoft, Cisco, Intel and ShoreTel.

In his free time, Bryan enjoys exploring, whether it’s locally — discovering a new food cart or treasure hunting as an avid Geocacher (300 caches found in the last year alone!) — or further afield, with travels including Europe and Central America and a humanitarian visit to Cuba. He thinks Portland is a great place to live and have a business.
