    Chris Settle

    Production Team Manager

    Chris is the first friendly face you will see on the Monster team when we show up to serve you.

    Chris leads our production crew, trains all new hires, keeps our equipment the best in the area and upholds the high standards we expect when serving our customers. Chris has been with the Monster team from the very beginning and came to the team as an experienced climber and crew manager.

    Chris’ focus on quality is a big part of what creates what we like to call the “Monster difference”. The production crew that he leads will leave you smiling from the first knock on the door to the final clean up. His team prides itself on enhancing the value of the property and trees on every job.

    Chris has an impeccable safety record. We have industry leading insurance to protect our customer but never intend to use it!

    Chris is the “ironman” of our team. He’s never missed a day and his work ethic sets the standard for our team.

    Get to know Chris a little bit better on his next visit and ask him about his favorite football team.

She’s our office manager, customer advocate, organizer and a number of other things so most of us just refer to her as “The Glue”.
