During his tenures at Scotia Capital and JPMorgan Chase, Chris Jamroz developed the business expertise that allows him to operate effectively in his current role as the CEO of STG Holdings, LLC, a provider of warehousing and logistics services. Away from his work, Chris Jamroz supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City (BBBSNYC), which hosts the annual Gridiron Games to raise funds for its mentorship services.

The 2017 Gridiron Games is a daylong event split into two sections. The first of these takes place in the morning and offers the opportunity for 150 of the organization’s Littles, children undergoing mentorship as part of the BBBSNYC’s program, to tour the MetLife Stadium, take part in football games, and learn about cheering courtesy of the New York Jet’s cheerleading squad. Further, the morning session includes speeches from football superstars, including Joe Namath and Carl Banks.

The afternoon session invites attorneys from New York’s top 16 law firms to engage in a friendly touch football tournament on the MetLife field, with the winning team earning the Gridiron Games trophy, which it receives during a special cocktail reception held in the MetLife Stadium’s VIP lounge.

The 2017 Gridiron Games takes place on November 4 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

With experience in the finance industry as well as profit and loss operations, Chris Jamroz serves as the CEO of STG Holdings LLC, which comprises two subsidiary companies, St. George Logistics and AZ CFS Corp. In his leisure time, Chris Jamroz pursues a number of outdoor interests, including mountain climbing.

The diversity of mountain ranges around the world offer challenges to hiking novices and experienced mountaineers alike. Because mountain climbers all need a starting point, here are a few of the best expeditions in the US for beginners.

1. Mount Baker, Washington

A top-ranked training peak, Mount Baker comprises a 10,781-foot summit that beginners can complete in one day. Local guide services offer a training course prior to hiking the mountain, which features 12 glaciers.

2. Mount Hood, Oregon

Another glaciated volcanic peak, Mount Hood serves as ideal training ground for new climbers. The snow on the mountain requires individuals to learn how to use ice axes and crampons, and the climb lasts roughly a half day.

3. Pikes Peak, Colorado

Pikes Peak allows hikers to sample the experience of climbing a big mountain, as it brings individuals up to a summit more than 14,000 feet above sea level. The mountain has one of the best-groomed trails, which allows for vehicle transport should anyone need it.
