Chris Foltz

Managing Director

Chris Foltz is a renowned brand development catalyst, celebrated inspirational speaker and Managing Director of the Silicon Valley based advisory practice Responsible Solutions Ltd. From his roots in partisan politics, to a battle with drug addiction, 119 days in county jail, and losing everything to the point of homelessness, Chris has re-established himself as one of the most engaging initiators of social impact and development in the nation, and some would consider – the world.

Chris’ transformative approach has been featured in publications, media programs, and through speaking engagements around the globe. In 2021, Foltz was invited to the Institute for Real Growth’s ‘IRG100’, a cohort of the top 100 CMOs and growth leaders from global brands. Foltz’s inclusion is the first from the industries represented and brought direct collaboration with Fortune 100 C-level peers.

Foltz’s fresh, outside the box approach not only stands out in the C-suites of iconic companies around the world, Chris also shines within the global startup ecosystem through his mentorship at the Silicon Valley based Founder Institute, the world’s largest pre-seed startup accelerator. Chris candor, authenticity, and polymathic background is regularly sought after by startup founders, panel leaders, and at ecosystem events throughout Africa, Europe, and North America.

Foltz recently served as Vice President of Global Reach for Sensi Media Group, publisher of the award winning cannabis lifestyle publication Sensi Magazine. Foltz successfully led the team through a digital transformation during the COVID-19 pandemic and is widely credited for saving the company millions of dollars, increasing stakeholder access, and reemerging back to print after more than a year hiatus.

During his time at Sensi Media, Sensi Magazine was named ‘Best Publication’ in the industry at the Cannabis Business Awards, featured as one of Forbes Magazine’s 2020 ‘Best Startup Employers’ in America, a multi-award winner at the FMA ‘Charlie Awards’, and Sensi Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief was honored as one of the ‘Top Women in Media’ by Folio Magazine. Foltz was also seen in the 2021 Tech Issue of the iconic High Times Magazine.

A genuinely humble man with an echoing presence, Chris’ numerous social impact involvements, professional accolades and personal accomplishments aid in defining his true ability to serve the masses, and offers an in-depth look into his visionary insight. It’s hard to go far in Chris’ path without hearing his name or seeing evidence of his direct impact.
