Chris Frederick is the president of ForAnything.com and owner of two successful businesses: ShirtsForAnything.com and SignsForAnything.com. An accomplished leader and business owner for several years before most of his peers had chosen a career path, his impressive list of strengths includes streamlining company operations, perpetual entrepreneurship, and business development. 

Chris opened a sign shop with business partner, Jeff Morin, at the age of 22 while still attending Virginia Tech. After graduating with an Econ Business degree and establishing his first business, Chris left to serve four years as an active duty Marine Corps officer, and lead hundreds of Marines during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Gaining concentrated operational experience while deployed in the Middle East, he was able to incorporate learned principles into his business strategy. 

Prior to a second deployment, Chris and Jeff founded ShirtsForAnything.com. Chris remained highly involved with the day-to-day business operations while in Afghanistan, including vendor selection and website development. 

Having risen to the rank of Captain, Chris left the Marine Corps in 2010 to focus attention on his businesses at home. He was not only able to triple the sign shop’s revenue in a fledgling business climate, but did so within one year by streamlining operations, reducing expenses, and penetrating newly defined markets.  

Additionally, Chris was able to grow Shirts For Anything by 400% in 2011-2012 by improving customer response time and implementing defined marketing techniques to gain consistent clientele. With both businesses serving a generalized customer base, he has worked to become a “one-stop-shop,” serving the marketing needs of businesses all over the country.
