Chris BaneyBusiness Systems Analyst


    What do you do at Valve+Meter?

    I ensure that every team member of V+M is properly equipped and enabled to do their best from a technological standpoint. Also, I work with our operations team to provide insight into how our data should be stored and managed to help the organization securely grow and succeed.


    What is your background and experience?

    I earned my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Hanover College.

    After graduating, I took a job supporting a small bloodstock agency in my hometown of Lexington, KY. While there, I developed close relationships with my colleagues which in turn made supporting them with difficult issues significantly easier.

    I feel a family-like connection to my team members at V+M and this makes sitting down together and solving complex problems a much less daunting task.


    What is it about you that makes you uniquely positioned to excel in your role?

    Computers, other systems, and technical problem solving in general have always interested me. I enjoy the challenge of technology, and when faced with a new opportunity, I am enticed by exploring the problem to find the best solution.


    What are some of your interests and hobbies outside of work?

    I enjoy sports, craft beers, and time with my friends and family. I think there is great potential for bonding with others when faced with a unique experience or challenge.

    Whether it’s venturing out to try a new brewery, slapping a few high fives with new people on the sand volleyball courts, or taking on a new golf course with friends, I love to challenge myself to try new things.


    Who is someone you admire and why?

    My twin brother, Camden, is a very outgoing and positive person. He is never afraid to bring another individual into a conversation, and has a knack for sharing his passions with others. He is a craft beer aficionado, and always teaches me something new about a beer we’re trying.

    Other people always tell me how much they enjoy my brother’s company and insight. Camden develops great rapport with everyone he meets and leaves a lasting impact on others by taking the time to understand their story.  I feel lucky to be a twin, but much more lucky to have a great brother to lean on and meet others through!
