Heuer Chief Idea Guy, CEO - Founder
Conversal’s founder, Chris Heuer, has been building Internet
companies and helping companies leverage the Internet to improve
business performance for over 9 years. Chris’ first project
was founding an Interactive Agency and Local Content Network in
1994. Since then, Chris has been involved in the development of
over 250 Web sites and Web applications, serving key roles in
building several pure play Internet companies including Boldly
Interactive that merged with OpenSpace.com in 1998 and Model
Network, Inc. where he still serves on the Board of Directors.
In 1999, he served as the Chief of eBusiness
at the United States Mint
where he oversaw their growth in online sales from 0 to $1.8 million
per week. At the Mint, Mr. Heuer worked with the head of the Mint,
former Director Philip Diehl, to ensure congruency of operations
at all levels of the eBusiness program. He also oversaw the development
of all eCRM activities, played a key role in the launch of the
award winning children’s web site “H.I.P Pocket Change”
and managed the merchandising of the online catalog.
In late 1999, he left the Mint to start what
is now Conversal, Inc. Chris’s Conversal experience includes
working with technology leaders such as palmOne,
Inc. and marketing communications leader Fleishman-Hillard.
In 1997, he launched the new media program
at Miami Ad School, where
he taught Interactive Marketing, Web Design and Multimedia. Chris’
desire to share knowledge while continuing to learn continues
today through his work on his first book, “The Communications
Strategy.” Conversal’s philosophy explained in the
book has been developed over Chris’ 10+ years of experience
working with eBusinesses. Mr. Heuer received a B.A. in Communications,
Legal Institutions, Economics and Government from the American
University in 1991.
On a more personal note, Chris loves life and enjoying every moment
of every day, whether working, traveling the world or relaxing
with a tough fought game of football on his PS2. But life isn't
all fun and games... Chris has been on the path to spiritual enlightenment
since a very young age, seeking a deeper understanding of the
proverbial question "why are we here" in both the local
and nonlocal states. Chris is currently in the process of becoming
a certified Reiki
Master to provide a healing hand for friends and more positive
energy for business associates and clients. Chris believes that
the biggest problem we face in the world today is that people
think it will always be this way - many have forgotten their own
personal power to make a difference. To this end, Chris wrote
a call to arms for the disenfranchised and the believers entitled
The Noble Pursuit.
Recently, Chris began working on his first screenplay, a political
thriller that is a cross between the TV show "Stargate SG1"
and the movie "The Manchurian Candidate". In his down
time, he spends quality time with his girlfriend Kristie and two
cats, Ele and Ana.
