Christopher G. Hollins is a Houston-based attorney and fifth-generation Texan. He also serves as Finance Chair for the Texas Democratic Party.
Chris developed a commitment to public service through the selfless example of his parents and their devotion to improving the lives of others. His father, George, served for 34 years in the Houston Police Department, and his mother, Christie, managed a career as a secretary while raising Chris, his two sisters, and more than 20 young foster children.
After graduating from Hightower High School in Missouri City, Texas, Chris went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts with Phi Beta Kappa honors from Morehouse College. Chris also completed a joint program with Yale Law School and Harvard Business School, earning both his Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration degrees. Today, Chris is admitted to the State Bar of Texas and Federal Courts for the Southern District of Texas.
Before transitioning into private practice, Chris attained a strong strategic skillset by working at some of the world’s most distinguished professional service firms. He was a Senior Engagement Manager at global consultancy McKinsey & Company, where he flourished in applying analytics and organizational best practice to transform public safety, defense, and security agencies. Chris was also a Summer Associate with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and the investment bank Goldman Sachs. Despite his private sector background, Chris’s most memorable professional experience ensued through his time with the White House Office of Presidential Personnel during the first year of the Obama administration.
A lifelong Democrat and veteran campaign manager, Chris resides in the University Oaks neighborhood of Houston with his wife Morgan and their two year-old daughter Vivian. The Hollins family attends Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church in Houston's Third Ward.
