Chris Kalamaras Partner / President

As Howlett Technologies’ President, Chris is responsible for Howlett’s day-to-day operations, as well as leading the company’s product development and technology strategy. He co-founded Howlett Technologies with David Howlett in 2011.

Chris was taught at a very young age that hard work will be rewarding. He grew up in the restaurant business with his family; his father started him off at the very bottom and made him work his way up in the business. He learned a tremendous amount of skills and more importantly, he learned how to run a business. He transitioned from the restaurant business to starting an Internet Marketing and Website Design company. He built his business from the ground up and in the course of a year I turned it into a very successful well run business. He wore many hats in this business and the fate rested solely on his shoulders. He loved his job and he loved taking an idea and building the process to make the idea a reality.

He has spent the last 10 + years in the Security Business. He has done Sales, Business Development and Management. He brings more to the table than most. He comes from a very technical background and a great knowledge of business. His background in technology provides him with the knowledge and the ability to explain very complex technical procedures in simple to understand way. As Security Systems utilizes technology, having a technical background make Chris an indispensable asset for Howlett Technologies.

He is a member of the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) and ASIS Young Professional Chicago Chapter Committee Member.
