Chris Root

Vice Chair

Chris was raised and spent his early childhood in Ormond Beach, Florida.
Westbound family vacations by train fueled his love for the mountains and national parks of the west. His longing to move to Idaho became a reality 13 years ago. Chris and his wife Tracy have one child at the Sage School, Wyatt in 8th grade. After 10 years of working in the financial services industry (First Financial Bank & Mesirow Financial) Chris decided to make a change and started his own travel publishing company (Remy Publishing) in Chicago Il. Chris served 6 years on the board with the Pioneer Montessori School and stays engaged with local non-profits. At present he serves on various committees including president of the Root Family Board at Root Company, a family owned business located in Florida.

“Throughout my early education I was very fortunate to experienced the value and importance of community. The Sage School represents a more evolved and polished version of that life foundation and compass that has proven invaluable. Blessed with a family, four wonderful children, a loving wife and community I now call home, I am honored to give back when and where I can.”
