A senior retail consultant for a global software company, a family man and world traveler, Chris Eubanks recently added city council member to his resumé.
Representing District I in the City of Castle Pines, Eubanks brings 30 years of business experience to his new position. He is passionate about listening to citizens and helping Castle Pines grow in a strategic way.
“I intend to represent the people of Castle Pines with veracity, honesty and integrity,” said Eubanks. “I will listen to residents, and I want my neighbors to know that they have a voice.”
Prior to the swearing-in ceremony in January, Eubanks did his homework. He met with the city manager for a line-by-line budget understanding and he watched every city council meeting (available online) from the past two years. “In my new roll, I will collaborate with fellow city council members and staff for new initiatives that can be implemented in a productive and fiscally responsible manner,” added Eubanks.
Eubanks hails from southern New Jersey, and while attending college, he worked as an entry-level employee for a large sporting goods retailer. After working his way up, earning several promotions, he was relocated to the corporate headquarters in Fort Lauderdale. While living there, Eubanks met his wife, Nicole, and the couple had their first daughter, Taylor.
After a corporate merger, the Eubanks family was moved to Colorado and settled in Highlands Ranch, where they welcomed their second daughter, Kaylee. Nine years ago, the family wanted a change of scenery and a little more space which brought them to Castle Pines.
At his current job as a retail consultant, Eubanks’ company is hired by retail and hospitality organizations to help manage labor costs and maximize revenue via a software program.
It would seem there is little time for anything else, but Eubanks also has his private pilot’s license and a rescue dog named Miko. He also enjoys camping and hiking and very much cherishes annual family trips abroad.
“My wife and I are really keen on not as many ‘things’ but experiences,” said Eubanks, who listed the several continents the Eubanks family has visited.
Eubanks first ventured into public service by serving on the School Accountability Committee at his children’s charter school, Ben Franklin Academy, and at the same time he was the school’s representative at the District Accountability Committee for Douglas County.
He also served on the Castle Pines North Master Association before it dissolved.
“I love Castle Pines and we’re a growing city,” said Eubanks. “One of my goals will be to bring more retail and restaurant choices for residents and to make our city a destination.”
