Chris Conard

Co-Founder & CEO
Coming from a decades-long career doing highly technical work in a hospital operating room, Chris has always had a strength in creative problem-solving. Using this skill was no different when applied to his everyday household fixes. While vacuuming his workspace one day, Chris was frustrated that his vacuum’s exhaust was creating more of a mess. That’s when the VacuVortex was born.
