About InnerView Group

We Are Brand Champions

InnerView is a marketing consulting firm established to help companies reach and influence their most critical audiences – the people and partners that represent their brand.

But why? Why didn’t we create a branding or advertising agency? Why are we focused on marketing to the internal audiences rather than tapping into the billions of dollars spent on external marketing?

While we love the stories behind the brands, we don’t see those stories trickling down to employees. We have seen too many brands spending a fortune on marketing to their customers, but forgetting to get their own people on board with the story. The story is getting diluted as soon as it leaves the marketing department. We see too many front-line representatives who lack true “belief” in the products and services they represent, and we’ve made it our mission to close that gap.

Our team draws on our collective experience in sales, marketing, operations, and training to align marketers with their customer-facing representatives.  We are thinkers who embrace measurement and data over guesses. We are explorers who are eager to immerse ourselves in the unique environment within each client company. Everyone at InnerView Group is incredibly passionate about seeing the magic that happens when employees have beliefconfidence and pride in the brand they represent. 

Hello from our team

Chris Wallace

Co-Founder, President
As Founder and President of InnerView, Chris builds upon previous success as the founder and CEO of Incite, a sales consulting and coaching practice, and his more than 15 years of sales, marketing and corporate leadership.

There is one single reason why Chris became and continues to be an entrepreneur – to help companies better align the strategies of the board room with the daily execution at the front lines. Helping to bridge that gap allows Chris to influence constant progress, from organization-wide culture shifts to individual employee breakthroughs in job satisfaction and commitment. In the end, the company wins, the employee wins and the customers win.

Beyond his work with clients, Chris is able to apply his passions as a teacher and author. He is an adjunct MBA professor at Temple’s Fox School of Business and has been published in outlets such as Harvard Business Review’s HBR.org.

Chris received a B.A. in Public Relations from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School and his MBA from Temple University. He lives in Villanova, PA with his wife, Sara, and his two young children. Your best bets to get him to STOP talking about work are to bring up baseball, golf, college basketball (GO ORANGE… and ‘Nova!) food or cigars.
