BNI Arizona South

Chrisie is a Tucson Native who loves traveling with her family, shooting pool, playing cards, and watching the Denver Broncos! She and her husband, Bill share 4 bonus children and 1 daughter along with 3 grandchildren. BNI SoZona is made up of 6 counties in Southern Arizona including Pinal, Pima, Greenlee, Cochise, Graham & Santa Cruz Counties. BNI is the largest referral organization in the world and Chrisie is in her 11th year as the CEO & franchise owner. She has 15 Chapters from Sierra Vista to Maricopa and nearly 300 Members. Their members range from the solo-entrepreneur to owners of large companies as well as employees and everything in between. She prides herself on creating a positive, supportive, structured place for all members to come together, train each other as a marketing team and then have each other’s back in passing quality referrals that result in business. In the last 12 months their members have passed over 16,000 referrals which resulted in over $7 Million in closed business for the communities that they touch. Chrisie is passionate about the opportunity to continue to build BNI here so that their members not only make more money but fulfill their dreams. “We help send Members kids to college, we help Members live passionate and amazing lives, not just because they’ve made more money but because their quality of business relationships has been elevated, and they are happier and more satisfied people. We love what we get to do each day and look forward to building a more stable business environment in all of Southern Arizona through the Givers Gain philosophy.”
