Chris Papp was born into Montreal’s garment industry and embraced everything about it. In 1998 he joined his family’s importing company as a supplier of women’s, men’s and children’s clothing to major Canadian retailers. Both his quick intuition and critical decision-making were a welcome asset to the business during those recession-era hard times. Counted among his regular accounts were Addition Elle, Laura Shops, La Senza Girl, HBC and Marie Claire.
Chris started his company SienaBlü in 2006 becoming an independent supplier of packaging, bags and salon accessories. Faithful to his deeply held values; Chris operates a socially responsible business and participates in ethical business practices. He’s passionate about the creative and interpersonal aspects of his business and displays an uncanny knack for anticipating and guiding emerging trends. The love he has for his work shows in his rapport with others, in his ability to handle challenges and successes with humility and grace and in his focussed ambition. He gets a real thrill in contributing to retailers’ identity by helping make branded statements that connect to their consumers on an emotional level.
Chris Papp enjoys being involved in community. He lends his leadership and support to several charity and philanthropic organizations that are dear to his heart. He is a board member of The Miriam Foundation and is actively involved in supporting many local causes and charities.
