16 Years in Prison to White House Guest, CEO of General Contracting Social Enterprise w/ Chris Wilson

Chris Wilson. Chris is the owner and CEO of two social enterprises in Baltimore City. One is a Construction General Contracting firm called Barclay’s Investment corporation. The other Furniture manufacturing company called, house of Davinci where they produce high-end furniture. One of the furniture pieces in the new furniture line will be commissioned by Red Bull!

The reason why I wanted to speak with Chris is because I’m looking for companies who are giving to their communities – you will see me interview more companies that are interested in uplifting people, who are positively impactful. They are helping humanity by:

  • Paying it forward and giving back
  • Making the world a better place to be
  • & Loving People

And Chris Wilson is because he tends to hire people who need help the most, unemployed – returning citizens who just came out of prison.

If you haven’t heard last week’s episode with Ken Gronbach, we talked about demographics of the USA. If you are interested in this topic, feel free to check out the last episode,

One thing I ask Ken about is diversity and demographic trends in America. He mentions 2 things: latino immigrants have been contributing to the economy in really important way and are a growing population that we should be paying attention to. And the black male population that is imprisoned touches millennial, Generation X and Baby Boomer generations. We need have a plan for that. No one knows what to do with that population and no one wants to talk about.

This is where Chris Wilson’s story comes in.
