Chip is a continuing student in the business of sports and wellness development and the infrastructure required to support these activities. As the successor of the firm that innovated some of the first sports surfacing applications, Chip has worked to create a business strategy that maximizes Vintage’s participation in partnering with facility owners and directors to create the high quality experience for the user, participants and staff.

This product development interest continued after graduating from college, working on the technical staff at California Sports Surfacing on a variety of developmental products in use today as portable and rooftop tennis/athletic surfaces. Joining Vintage Contractors in 1993, Chip has worked closely with our team to create an innovative, responsive and friendly environment for our clients and colleagues.
