Member Spotlight
Chris Humphries
Chris Humphries was born in Texas City, TX and graduated from Santa Fe High School. After high school, he attended Southwest Texas State University where he majored in Resource and Environmental Studies and minored in Geology.
After college Chris began his career in the construction industry and worked for a large general contractor. After a few years of traveling with his company, he decided to specialize in the HVAC/plumbing industry and went to work for a mechanical company in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. With aspirations of wanting to live in the Hill Country, in 2001 Chris was able to transfer to a mechanical contractor in San Antonio and chose New Braunfels as his home. In 2008, Chris married his wife Allison, a native of New Braunfels. They have two children, Addison age 11 and Caitlynn age 8.
In December of 2012, Chris decided to partner with one of his best friends and start their own mechanical construction company. They started Team Mechanical of TX with just three employees and today they employ over 100 people, and they are still growing.
As a child, Chris would always look forward to attending Rotary meetings with his grandad. It was not until a few years ago he learned that his great grandad was a founding member of the Texas City Rotary Club and served as the club’s first president. Chris joined the Rotary Club of New Braunfels in 2014 and has served as Sergeant at Arms, YEO, Youth Lane Chair, President Elect Nominee, and President Elect.
Chris is also a proud member of the Wurstfest Association. He has volunteered and coached for the New Braunfels Little League, New Braunfels Youth Soccer Association, New Braunfels Parks and Recreation, YMCA, and Upwards. He was also a recent board member for Communities in Schools, member of the Elks Lodge, and serves on the finance committee for his church.
Chris is extremely dedicated to serving his club and is looking forward  to his new role as President.
