Christopher Curtis is president of GoVision L.P., one of the nation’s premier suppliers of customized modular LED walls and turnkey mobile LED units. Curtis founded the company in 2002, following
nearly two decades as an independent investor and entrepreneur who played a defining role in his industry.
GoVision (www.jumbo.tv) is a full-service LED screen provider that specializes in state-of-the-art video solutions, from the most complex modular configurations, custom-built to any size, to its fleet of turnkey mobile units. GoVision has provided broadcast and production support for countless national events, including the 55th (Bush), 56th and 57th (Obama) Presidential Inaugurations, Major League Baseball and NBA All Star Games, NCAA Final Fours, the Ryder Cup and U.S. Open Championships, the 100th Anniversary Scouting Jamboree and the Gaylord Opryland Grand Reopening. The Argyle, Texas-based company is the screen provider of the Texas Motor Speedway, Dallas Cowboys Stadium Plaza, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, University of Oklahoma football and several PGA tournaments.
Curtis was largely responsible for the creation of the portable daylight large screen industry. He co-founded Motion Graphics, the pioneer of the category, in 1991, and purchased the business outright in 1992. Three years later, Curtis merged the company with BCC Video’s Jumbotron division to form Screenworks, now the industry’s largest player. He sold his interest in Screenworks in 1998 to concentrate on other opportunities.
In 1995, Curtis was the original investor in Field Source, Inc., which created unique relevance marketing programs for companies such as PepsiCo, Coors and Nestle. The business was acquired by The Mosaic Group in 1998.
Curtis is an investor in various real estate partnerships and venture capital funds.
In February 2013, Curtis was appointed to the 2014 North Texas Final Four Local Organizing Committee. He was the first winner of the Innovation Impact Award, presented in January 2011 by the NFL and the North Texas Small Business Alliance, for embodying the characteristics of leadership, innovation and social responsibility. In 2009, Curtis was among a select group of leaders appointed to the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee. He is a founding member of the Argyle ISD Education Foundation Board.
A graduate of Texas Christian University, Curtis is a past member of the TCU Board of Trustees and is only the second individual in school history to serve as president of both the TCU Frog Club and the National Alumni Association. He received the university’s prestigious President’s Service Award in April 2011. Curtis and his wife, Nicole, are Patron and Lifetime members of the Clark Society. They have four children, and live in Flower Mound, Texas.
