Raving Partner — Strategic Operations & Marketing Performance

Chris Archunde

Chris’ 23-year career in Gaming, Hospitality & Entertainment has taken her from New Mexico to Puerto Rico and back with stops all throughout the US.

After 10 years in Executive Management and Operations, Chris has honed and leveraged her skills in successful enterprise-wide project management, initial financial and legal negotiation and implementation of contracts and performance agreements for competitive business edges.

Chris’ professional background, industrialist drive and knowledge of Native American Gaming, Hospitality and Entertainment Management has given her Operational insight that is invaluable in working with organizations to identify strengths and areas of opportunity.

Chris’ leadership and decision-making strengths are the cornerstones in her approach to Executive Management. Additionally, she possesses an aptitude for optimizing performance and motivating team members and colleagues. In any position, she can visualize success and identify innovative and effective strategies for achieving it.

As an avid golfer, among Chris’ most rewarding projects was to join forces with the Senior LPGA Legends Tour, Suquamish Tribe, and Clearwater Casino Resort to bring the Suquamish Clearwater Legends Cup to White Horse Golf Course (Suquamish’s Golf Course). Chris headed this enormous enterprise-wide project and some of her favorite memories from this time were playing alongside one of her idols, Michelle McGann in the inaugural year and watching Solheim Cup Captain and World Hall of Fame member, Julie Inkster win the following year’s event.

Chris’ next chapter is a “full circle” moment as she is thrilled to announce she is back as a Raving Partner and looks forward to working closely again with Clients using her unique skills for their ultimate success.
