Christopher Van Nest

04_NRPRChristopher is the Social Media Manager at NRPR Group. Chris works on multiple entertainment, fitness, and consumer accounts at NRPR Group and enjoys switching between brand voices and getting in the minds of the target consumer. This mindset helped Chris at his previous positions where he managed the social pages for boutique accounts and Fortune 500s such as Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Worldwide, Inc., Jeopardy!, Mattel, and assisted socially in various movie promotions for Fox and NBC Universal.

Chris is originally from Detroit, MI and earned his B.A. at Michigan State University. After graduating, he has lived and worked in Chicago, New York City, Austin, and currently Los Angeles. He believes that each city has made him smarter, stronger, and humble.

When Chris isn’t cruising around the social-sphere, he is tutoring homeless children with the non-profit organization School On Wheels, in the dance studio performing hip-hop choreography, or hosting his radio show that airs on KCLA with the American Radio Network. Chris enjoys exploring the city, attending events he has no business at, and is on the hunt for the best Manhattan in town.
