Christopher Freeze is a keynote speaker, writer, and leadership and security expert.
He’s also fun, passionate, authentic – and the straight-shooting speaker clients love to work with.
As an FBI Agent for over 20 years, he tracked down foreign terrorists, investigated violent extremists, recruited international spies, and arrested corrupt politicians. As a result, he rose to the highest ranks of the FBI and served as the Special Agent in Charge for the State of Mississippi until his retirement in 2019.
Christopher learned enduring life principles while dealing up close and personal with some of law enforcement’s most challenging situations which birthed an authentic approach to speaking honestly about sensitive topics.
Shortly after retiring from the FBI, former Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Chris as Executive Director of the Mississippi Department of Human Services where he served in the final year of Gov. Bryant's term.
“I am confident Christopher Freeze will do a great job leading MDHS,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “His intellect and leadership experience as a Special Agent in Charge at the FBI makes him an excellent fit to guide the agency during this period of transition. I am grateful he has accepted this appointment.”
Known as a leadership expert and bridge builder, he worked to strengthen partnerships with public and private sector agencies, bring attention to the challenges facing law enforcement, and encourage individuals to demonstrate leadership in all aspects of their professional and personal life. He expertly helps audiences avoid leadership missteps, embrace vulnerability, and understand the importance of communicating expectations so that kids and adults can overcome challenges and trauma in order to make a positive impact in the world.
He brings a RARE perspective.
He's a nationally TRUSTED leader.
His presentations are RELATABLE.
He's a proven PROFESSIONAL.
"When most people of think of 'FBI executive," the stereotype that comes to mind isn't smiling, affable, or understanding of business realities, but with our audience, Chris was all those. I gladly recommend Chris to others who need an entertaining speaker about business cooperation with law enforcement."
