Vice President, Global Security Services

 Christopher Smith consistently creates world-class product experiences through solid product management practices. His ability to identify and solve his customers’ business problems stems from more than 20 years of experience developing and managing technology products and applications for the Enterprise market. 

Chris currently serves as Lumen’s Vice President of Global Security Services. In this capacity, he oversees the Connected Security pillar of the Lumen platform. This includes investment oversight, and product and revenue management for the global security-product portfolio. 

Prior to joining Lumen through the Level 3 acquisition of CenturyLink, Chris was Vice President of Product Management, responsible for enterprise voice solutions and the global data center portfolio. He also served as a director in the CTO office at Global Crossing, where he was responsible for setting and incubating technology direction, and developing and managing the suite of SIP Trunking services.

Chris’s work for Lumen is just a side gig, however. For his real job, Chris plays guitar in a band, and he intends to resume playing live shows post-Covid. He lives in Colorado with his wife – a former “groupie” – and they have two boys in college. Chris hopes to be a rock star someday.
