Damien StorkFounder at CHX Performance
Damien lives in Chamonix and London and spends his time either working on the programme content with the Science team, designing programmes for clients, holding workshops and seminars, or hosting CHX events in Chamonix.
He has spent his entire life working in and participating in a variety of sports at the same time as developing a career in the Talent Management sector. Between 1999 and 2013 Damien built businesses in resourcing and talent management consultancy, most recently as part of the very successful private equity-backed management team that set up and then sold Ochre House Talent Management (2006-2013), a global consultancy that won multiple awards for its leading-edge programmes for hiring and developing management and executive teams.
On a personal front, since 2001, Damien has combined corporate life with climbing and trekking all over the World, including the Andes, the Himalaya and SE Asia. It is Chamonix he now calls home, and it is the challenge of the extraordinary environment that led him to the idea of CHX; the desire to introduce this place to businesses and individuals, combining the magic of the mountains with hard science, all aimed at personal and team development.
Damien works ½ day per week for The Connection – a large crisis centre in central London – helping clients prepare for and apply for work, coaching them to write CVs and get ready for interview.
