Entrepreneurship is a major passion for Chris Jones as he finds it an incredibly rewarding journey. He founded Entrix Sports more than 20 years ago while completing his BComm at the University of Calgary by inventing a football glove for receivers. He has since led a great team in transforming Entrix Sports into a highly respected Canadian sporting goods distributor that has built 3 brands to #1 market share in Canada.
He came across EOS™ when he was preparing for the largest growth year in the history of the company. He knew the business needed a great system to help him ‘get above’ the company and make it less about him. EOS™ was that system and it helped Entrix create incredible clarity, simplicity and execution throughout the company.
He has been actively involved in entrepreneurial minded organizations like the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, EO Accelerator, Junior Chamber International, and the Enactus Advisory Board. He has coached and mentored dozens of small business owners and budding entrepreneurs privately and through these programs. He is currently the Canadian leader for EO Accelerator, a program designed to empower entrepreneurs with the tools and community to grow and master their business.
The EOS™ model has helped free Chris’s time to pursue his passion of helping other entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses.
He has been married for 20 years (to the same person) and has two amazing boys. He loves to coach in the sports world too, having coached 9 different sports. He is an avid athlete and loves running, skiing, hiking, football and cycling.
