Chris Pudenz

Chief Financial Officer

Chris joined Marco's team as the chief financial officer in 2017. He came to Marco with a long list of accomplishments and a host of experiences, including investment banking, public accounting and multiple senior financial leadership roles. 

As former executive vice president and CFO of ABRA Auto Body & Glass, Chris lead all finance, procurement and legal functions for the $900 million business. In 2015, he was awarded CFO of the year in the large, private equity category by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

If Chris could choose a super power, it would be the ability to predict the future because he could already know the outcome when making important business decisions. Even though he can’t predict the future, Chris is a supreme numbers guy dedicated to organizational growth and profitability. What inspires him the most? Challenging employees to achieve goals they didn’t think would be attainable.

Someday, Chris would like to be a senior golf pro. When he isn’t crunching numbers, Chris likes playing with new gadgets and technology, spending time at the lake with his family and golfing.
