More About PerkSpot & Friends

But wait there’s more… check out how our sister company Spotlite is transforming employee benefit enrollment. They’re making the enrollment process beautiful for employers across the country. A band of brilliant minds, the Spotlite team prefers coffee over water, bikes over cars, and did I mention, they will school you in the annual dodge ball tourney.

About Our Founder

Chris founded and ran PerkSpot out of his Chicago home, living the typical early entrepreneur lifestyle of ramen noodles and no guaranteed paychecks. Fast forward ten years later, and we’re all proud to be a part of what Chris started. Subsequently, Chris has taken on the role of CEO of Spotlite, PerkSpot’s equally successful sister company. Over the years, Chris has not only managed to create two successful companies, but has found time to build a family, invest in non-profits, and engage in a number of additional business pursuits.
