About Chris

Chris Rugh began his career as a young, naive kid who thought he knew all there was to know about business, but didn’t have a penny to his name. He graduated from Grand Valley State University and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations and Advertising. However, after several business failures, he realized he was doing something wrong. This was a hard realization for him, but he made the changes and the necessary improvements to help him become the successful entrepreneur he is today.

Chris launched Custom Toll Free (www.customtollfree.com) as a DBA of Rugly Holdings Inc. (www.rugly.com) in 1997.

Fortune 500 companies and well recognized brands such as 1-800-CONTACTS, Comcast, and Best Buy are among the company’s valued clients. Revenues at Custom Toll Free have escalated dramatically every year since the launch. Even during the worst recession in history they grew 30%. The company employs seven team members and dozens more through outsourced arrangements.

However, Chris didn’t stop there. Now he is an accomplished entrepreneur, business owner and CEO, and public speaker and private consultant.
