Chris Stevens joined the Monogram Club Board of Directors in 2011 to serve a three-year term ending in 2014.
Stevens is the Vice President of Corporate Relations for Keurig Premium Coffee Systems, responsible for the company's public relations, communications, and corporate social responsibility initiatives. He is one of the four original team members to develop and launch the Keurig system. Stevens has also helped the organization grow over the past 13 years from its beginnings to the company's current position as the top coffee brewer in America.
Prior to his time at Keurig, Stevens spent seven years as a brand management and district manager for Procter & Gamble and worked as president of the August A. Busch Co. for nine years. He's also held positions as executive vice president of United Liquors and as the executive director of the Sports Museum of New England.
Stevens earned two monograms in basketball during his playing career with the Irish, competing under head coach Digger Phelps from 1971-74. Stevens started as a sophomore and helped the Irish end Marquette's 81-game winning streak as a junior in 1973. During his senior season, Notre Dame compiled an impressive 26-3 record, earned a No. 3 ranking in the final AP poll, and famously ended UCLA's fabled 88-game winning streak on Jan. 26, 1974.
Stevens served as vice president of his senior class and graduated in 1974 from the University with a degree in economics. He later completed the executive education program at Columbia University.
In addition to his career work, Stevens serves as a pro bono motivational speaker and has lectured at Notre Dame, MIT, Northeastern and Boston College. His annual course taught at Notre Dame's Mendoza School of Business is the top-ranked inter-term course as rated by students of the school.
Stevens co-owns three commercial websites, a real estate company based in Washington, D.C., and a production company in Hollywood. He is the executive producer of a soon to be released film "Three Days," and also serves as a part-time actor and voice-over specialist. Stevens is currently the lead investor of his newest venture, Snow or Sand, a website that offers foreign travel solutions to college students. He has worked for 10 years as a play-by-play broadcaster for the Wellesley Cable Channel, covering local football, basketball and soccer.
A current member of the ALS National Board, he is also an ardent supporter of research to fight cancer and Huntington's Disease. Stevens recently wrote a book in 2009 titled "Fighting to Give," which chronicles his Notre Dame classmate Jimmy Culveyhouse's battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). 100 percent of the book's proceeds will be donated to ALS research in Culveyhouse's name, cancer research in the name of Stevens' late wife, Marian, and Huntington's disease in the name of his two brothers who died of the disease.
Stevens resides in Wellesley, Mass., and is the father of five children.
