Christo Bassila

CEO and Managing Partner

Hi, I’m Chris

I am a Bids and Proposals consultant with over 20 years of experience, working alongside companies of all sizes to secure contracts through competitive bidding. Throughout my career, I have experienced firsthand the immense stress and anxiety that accompany crafting complex proposals under tight deadlines and with limited resources.

These challenges have shaped my professional ethos: Bidding should not undermine personal time or quality of life.

 

Driven by this conviction, I have developed efficient systems and processes to alleviate these burdens.

 

My expertise delivers will help you secure contracts efficiently — even if I'm not specialized in your specific product, service, or technology. My proven methodology is industry-agnostic and can be tailored to meet your unique needs. My clients are seeing a 30% to 50% increase in win rate once we have transformed their bid operations.

 

Furthermore, with the integration of AI technologies, clients are expanding their businesses without placing undue pressure on their most valuable asset—their talented workforce.
