Chris Murray joined Denny Elwell Company, L.C. in 2003. He was appointed President in 2007, and was later promoted to CEO in 2010. Since that time, Chris has implemented Brokerage Services and Property Management divisions to an already well established Commercial Leasing and Development business. These additions have allowed the company to offer more services to current clientele and reach a broader customer base. This growth has led to the creation of a satellite office in the western Des Moines suburb of Waukee.

Prior to joining Denny Elwell Company, L.C., Chris was employed by Wells Fargo & Co.
