Christopher Hill is the founder of PerkSpot, a Chicago-based company that manages discount benefit programs for employers. PerkSpot’s clients include Fortune 500 corporations, state and local governments, school districts, and other affinity groups. Chris started Perkspot out of his condo four and a half years ago, and Perkspot has been doubling revenue every year since.

Before founding PerkSpot, Chris worked for Lake Capital, a Chicago-based private equity firm, managing portfolio companies and evaluating acquisition opportunities in the business services space.
