Chris Blakeslee, MBA
Team Lead

Ascent Capital

Chris joined Coldstream in the Spring of 2012 with over 12 years of experience in the commercial banking and the private lending industry. Chris received his formal credit training from Bank of America and leveraged that into various founder and leadership roles in two Pacific Northwest-based real estate funds. An innovative and achievement-oriented leader, Chris brings a pragmatic approach to his business philosophy. Chris graduated from Seattle University with a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering and received his MBA from the University of Washington.

He enjoys staying active outside of work and spends the majority of his time on Mercer Island with his wife, two daughters, and black lab named Gypsy. Chris loves golfing, kite-surfing, skiing, surfing, tennis, and any other activity that really gets his juices flowing.

As a native Seattleite, I fully enjoy taking advantage of the outdoor experiences this region offers - whether it's in the mountains, on a lake, or in the ocean.
