Christopher Benoit’s Biography
Christopher Benoit is the founder and principal of CB Capital LLC. He graduated from Bryant College with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with a concentration in Finance in 1993. After Bryant, Christopher entered into a Financial Development Program at a Fortune 50 technology company.

After 5 years in 1998, Christopher left Corporate America to join his brothers in a 3-year old Subaru dealership in Rhode Island. Over the next 25 years, they added the Nissan brand and grew the business to over $140M in annual revenue and 130 employees.
