Chris Garvey

EVP of Product

I am passionate about helping clients innovate faster and realize maximum value from the cloud.

I have spent the last 18 years driving transformation for clients and companies directly by embracing change and applying new technology to accelerate business growth. As the leader of Product, my role is to deliver value to customers by developing our portfolio of products and services that will help clients innovate faster and realize maximum value from the cloud.

Prior to joining 2nd Watch, I was Managing Director for Digital Transformation at Luxoft, a global provider of consulting services. While there, I built our practice focused on Big Data, AI, Cloud and DevOps, which is a great fit for where we are going at 2nd Watch. Before Luxoft, I was at Expedia where we significantly scaled the analytics platform and instituted a product-driven mindset with our data engineering teams. Our infrastructure was largely on-premise at the time and just starting the journey toward the cloud, so I have lived through the challenges that many organizations are facing first-hand. Before Expedia, I spent time at eBay and ran the platform-as-a-service analytical offering, customer care application team, and outbound marketing and application suite that supported the 150 top US retail businesses from end-to-end in the Enterprise unit.

Before launching into professional life, I grew up on the East Coast and studied Computer Science at James Madison University – Go Dukes! When I am not working I can be found outside hiking, backpacking, skiing, and sailing with my family in the Pacific Northwest.
