Founder and CEO
Chris Schalleur founded Christo IT Services in 1999 with the goal of providing small businesses in the Philadelphia region the type of professional IT support larger companies enjoy. Applying his experience working in marketing and sales, as well as IT and engineering, at firms such as Honeywell, Primavera, and Microtrac, Chris quickly built a reputation for superior IT services. Christo has been a leader in the Philadelphia region for small business IT services since its start. With encouragement from Harry Brelsford of SMB Nation and Microsoft, Chris started the Small Business Server (SBS) Philly User Group in 2006. The group is comprised of IT professionals in the Philadelphia region who serve small businesses. They are dedicated to improving best practices, learning about new technologies, and increasing customer awareness in the region. In 2018, Chris co-authored the Amazon best-selling book Sitting Duck: Why YOUR business is a Cybercriminal’s ideal target. Chris is a graduate of Villanova University. He has been a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer since 1998. He lives in North Wales with his wife of over 20 years, Jen, and their daughters, Julia and Emily.
