Hi there. Allow me to virtually introduce myself.
I’m Chris Burk – Sales Representative for Vitamix. I hail from Edmonton, AB, was raised in London, ON and about 13 years ago, made my way to Abbotsford, BC where I currently reside with my wife and our family of 40+ animals that we raise on our two-acre hobby farm.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a keen interest in health and nutrition. So when searching for work back in 1997, I was pleasantly surprised to find a natural fit with Vitamix. 15 years later, I continue to be inspired by this remarkable company and their premium line of high performance blenders.
I’m passionate about what I do and the brands I represent, so when it comes to my profession, I am a very outspoken. I approach sales with the motto; It’s always better to explain the value of a product rather than having to explain later, why it doesn’t work. The economics of buying cheap is poor economics, and time is too valuable to spend it fixing scantily made products. That’s why I pride myself on only endorsing top name brands with superior products.
When I’m not occupied promoting healthy living through my professional pursuits, I enjoy cycling, farming and horseback riding. I lead a busy lifestyle, but live by the philosophy that priorities need to balance and ultimately, reduce overall stress. At the end of the day, I want to be able to look back and say, I did the right thing for my clients, my wife, my family and myself.
