This interview is a part of the EEDC's Get to Know the Owner Series.

In the heart of Erie, there’s a local business that’s not just about ventilation – it’s about community, quality, and a commitment to service. Meet Chris Recio of Erie Duct Cleaning Plus, a Marine Corps veteran who has turned his passion for precision and attention to detail into a thriving business. In this blog, we'll delve into his journey from the military to entrepreneurship and how he's making a difference, one clean duct at a time.

About Chris Recio:

Born in Brownsville, Texas, and raised in Pasadena, Chris Recio's journey took a significant turn when he joined the Marines a year after high school. Stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, he grew to appreciate “community”. Once at Headquarters Marine Corps in Washington DC, he honed his IT skills and furthered his expertise navigating the complexities of computer systems within the Pentagon.

Post-military, Chris ventured into the corporate world, taking on diverse roles, from working on a dinner cruise boat on the Potomac River, where his military background facilitated security duties for diplomats and state departments, to delving into the mortgage lending industry. His corporate journey led him to IT mortgage roles in banks and eventually to the software domain with PC Lender and Mortgage Cadence. Chris now lives in Erie, Colorado, with his wife and two daughters.
