Chad HoltDALLAS, Texas—December 2017— C1S Group, one of the Southwest’s leading engineering and construction firms has hired Chad Holt. With nearly 20 years of experience working with Fortune 1000 Companies, he joins the C1S team as the Director of Business Development and Marketing.

Chad began his career as a business risk consultant working for Ernst & Young, a multinational accounting firm. In 2002, he transitioned to business development, accepting a position with the Business Solutions Division of Office Depot. During his tenure at Office Depot, Chad took on increasing levels of responsibility with a primary focus on mid-market and enterprise level customers in the central region. The last three years were spent in a corporate strategy position working with C-level executives to design and implement new revenue-generating programs.
