Chris Joseph, CEO

Chris Joseph

Chief Executive Officer

Prior to Clovis Point, Chris worked on investment teams at Main Street Capital Corporation and Republic Holdings. Chris began his career in investment banking at J.P. Morgan. Over the course of his career, Chris has worked on dozens of transactions representing more than $3 billion of total invested capital.

Whether he’s snow skiing, scuba diving or just going for a walk with his wife and son, Chris is most relaxed when he’s outside.

Ryan Royal, CTO

Ryan Royal

Chief Technology Officer

Ryan has been focused on technology for the past 20 years, starting out as a developer and moving into senior leadership roles at Emmi Solutions, Pharos Innovations and CellTrack. He focuses on building products that drive change within complex and highly regulated landscapes.

Ryan pairs a start-up mentality with creative problem solving and this defines how he works with his team to turn vision into reality. He believes in investing in his colleagues to help them achieve their personal goals and enjoys nothing more than taking a simple idea or thought and turning it into a reality where it has a substantial positive impact to an end user.

When not leading the charge on new technological frontiers or working on lowering his golf handicap, Ryan likes to hang out in this woodworking shop building custom furniture.
