Chris Cibbarelli

Sales Director, INFLUENCE AT WORK®

Email Chris Cibbarelli

An IAW® associate since 2002, Chris Cibbarelli is known by her clients as a “business partner” and a proven resource when it comes to successful programs. Chris joined IAW with rich experience in customer management. Besides being named multiple times to the President’s Club, Chris developed a strong following because of her energy, insightfulness, magnetic joy and customer-oriented approach.

Raised in Nebraska and Arizona, Chris has spent a good portion of her life doing exactly what she wants; helping people reach their goals. If asked, the favorite part of her day is interacting with a wide variety of clients; whether emailing a client in Dubai or teleconferencing with a trainer in Australia, she is happiest getting to know someone who is new to Dr. Cialdini’s research. At home, Chris shares her life with her husband, Shawn, her young son, Cayman, and her two Boston Terriers, Bond and Deuce. She enjoys traveling to tropical destinations, although does not like Pina Coladas or getting caught in the rain!
