Chris Fahey

Head of Ecosystem

At Pillar, Chris is focused on three main areas—building our relationships with future founders, developing our community and ecosystem, and helping to recruit candidates for senior leadership roles across the Pillar portfolio.

Prior to joining Pillar, Chris was the Chief People Officer and a member of the executive team at Alumni Ventures Group (“AVG”), a New Hampshire-based venture firm striving to democratize venture capital as an asset class.  During Chris’s three years with AVG,  he helped grow the organization to over 95 employees across 5 offices and $250 million in AUM. Before AVG, Chris was a contracted Director of HR at Msg.ai (now ^netomi), a VC-backed startup that allows consumer brands to leverage human-assisted AI for conversational commerce. From 2010 to 2016, Chris worked with Mosaic Research Management, a financial services provider offering primary research and relationship management to institutional investors. Chris was the first employee at Mosaic and held a variety of roles over the course of his 6 years with the firm.

Chris grew up in the Boston area and is a graduate of Williams College, where he was a member of the men’s varsity ice hockey team. Chris is still an avid hockey player but now spends most of his time as an eager 1st-time father and homeowner.
