Board of Directors


Trey Doty

Executive Director

Trey may be one of the first people you speak with at the ATC. His role as Executive Director is critical to helping the ATC achieve its mission of serving tech companies by designing a people strategy for their evolving business. Learn more about Trey and why we trust him to guide our mission.

Trey Doty is an experienced nonprofit professional whose entrepreneurial approach has emerged from his leadership in grantmaking, higher education, church planting, and community service organizations. He is frequently sought out to inspire organizations and individuals to creatively engage donors, board members, executives, and volunteers in achieving their mission.

As the founder of two nonprofits, he understands the challenges that organizations face during critical transition periods. He provides the fund development and strategic leadership perspective that assist not-for-profit executives and boards as they navigate a changing reality. Whether it is establishing a fund development program in a longstanding organization (George Fox University, Portland Seminary) or scaling a not-for-profit from local to national influence (Responder Life) he looks forward to the moments he is able to catalyze health and sustainability in the life of an organization.

In addition to his daily involvement with The ATC, Trey currently serves as President for Responder Life, an organization serving first responders. Additionally, he is a chaplain for a federal law enforcement agency and serves in a leadership capacity for numerous organizations throughout the PacNW.

Trey received a B.S. in Sociology/Social Work from George Fox University and his Master of Divinity from George Fox University. His post-graduate studies include a Certificate of Nonprofit Development from Portland State University and the completion of a twelve-month Residency in Clinical Pastoral Education from Legacy Emanuel Hospital and Health Center, a level-one trauma center in Portland, OR.


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.

About CHR
CHR creates unique, custom IT solutions that allow businesses to accomplish greater, more robust goals. Since 2007, we have worked in partnership with CFOs, senior managers and company principals to understand and embrace advancements in IT solutions.

We take a holistic, creative approach to solving our clients’ problems. CHR is technology agnostic, so you can be sure that the solutions we recommend are truly the ones that are best suited to your needs. We believe that technology should be the tool that powers our clients’ work, rather than a limiting factor.

We’re committed to helping businesses become more productive and focus on what they do best. We’re dedicated to helping small- and medium-sized businesses that are going through business and technology changes. And we’re proud of our own and our clients’ successes.
