Chris Kavanagh is the European Logistics Manager for Nest, having been part of their European Support operations since their launch. Nest reinvents unloved but important home products, like the thermostat and smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. Nest was acquired by Google in 2014 for $3.2bn.

With a passion for technology and new challenges, Chris has had been successful in a variety of roles and careers, most dramatically moving from Retail to IT in 2013. His three word mission is Mutually Assured Success and he holds strong disdain for the word ‘potential’.

Chris comes with 10 years management experience, an impressive Lego collection and is too short to be of any value on a basketball court, despite his best intentions.
