Behind the AIIM logo is a group of passionate and dedicated professionals focused on serving our wonderful community of information professionals.

Together, we are AIIM!

This week we meet Chris Fenton, Business Development and Account Manager, EMEA. Chris has been with AIIM since November of 2005. Chris is from Droitwich Spa, United Kingdom-I was curious about the town name so I looked it up.... interesting fact: The town is situated on massive deposits of salt, and salt has been extracted there since ancient times. The natural Droitwich brine contains 2½ lbs. of salt per gallon - ten times stronger than sea water and rivalled only by the Dead Sea.

Chris moved to Worcester after getting married in 2009. He now lives with his lovely wife Jade and daughter Libby who is 2 ½ years old. A new addition to the family is due in October 2014, so place your bets now whether you think it’s a boy or girl.

What do you do and what do love about it?

My role involves looking after AIIM’s relationships with leading solution and service providers in the information management industry, so that together we can provide best practice advice and thought leadership to our members across EMEA. It’s great that I get to work with agile start-ups and established market leaders within our industry. I’m an occasional speaker at industry events, and being a small team here in the UK office, I poke my nose in just about everything else we do.

It’s my colleagues, the people I meet, and the camaraderie along the way that makes my job a ton of fun, particularly at the AIIM events. I’ve had the benefit of working and meeting with some great people who are just as willing to help me succeed and as I am in helping them.

Describe yourself using 3 words only.

Practical, Resourceful, Creative

What are you proudest of?

Every single person in my family, but especially my wife and daughter Libby. Jade works very hard as a practice nurse (registered nurse) and is a great mum to our daughter -- a little super star in the making. She gets her confidence from me, but her beauty and brains must be from her mum.

What movie, no matter how many times you’ve seen it, do you have to watch when it’s on?

Jurassic Park. I watched this on my 9th birthday in July 1993, and love it just as much now I’m turning 30!

Summer or Winter?


Favorite color?

Lime green, but I would never wear clothes or buy a car in this colour!

What do you do for fun?

If I’m outdoors come rain or shine I’m having fun. But particularly when I’m on my mountain bike getting covered in mud, wakeboarding, windsurfing, or just sat around a camp fire with friends.

Go AIIM Team!
