HOUSTON (May 10, 2023) – BoyarMiller Chairman Chris Hanslik has been named the recipient of the 2023 Impact Award by Vistage Houston Chapter, the world’s largest CEO coaching and peer advisory organization for small and midsize businesses. The Impact Award recognizes the remarkable development and achievement of trailblazing leaders. From business growth to leadership development, dedicated leaders reach significant heights within their first years as Vistage members, with lasting impact on their company, peers, and community.

As Firm Chairman for over 12 years, Hanslik drives growth while prioritizing company culture to contribute to the ultimate success of the firm. Chris is devoted to directing overall firm strategy in ways to advance the firm and continues to be an industry leader both in and outside of the courtroom. He is passionate about impacting the Houston community in many ways, including having served as Chairman of the Board of SEARCH Homeless Services, and currently sitting Vice Chairman of the Board for the Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County; as well as the Board of Directors of The Texas Bowl where he is a past-Chair. Chris was also recognized by the Houston Business Journal as one of Houston’s Most Admired CEOs of 2021. Chris hosts a podcast called Building Texas Business about corporate innovation, entrepreneurship, and business leadership in the Lone Star State.

With over two decades of experience as a litigator, Chris’s practice has spanned the full spectrum of commercial and business litigation, including contracts, business torts, securities and corporate governance, oil and gas, lender liability, trade secrets, non-compete agreements, and other employment-related disputes.

“The peer advisory process utilized by Vistage has been a meaningful way for me to receive feedback and collaboration from other local business leaders,” said Hanslik. “This recognition from Vistage is a great honor, and I appreciate the opportunity to continue to partake in further development of leaders by being an eager participant.”

“Chris Hanslik’s exceptional leadership skills, strategic vision, community involvement, and unwavering commitment to his team have earned him the prestigious Vistage Leadership Award,” shared Robin Stanaland, Vistage Master Chair. “His innovative approach to problem-solving, his ability to inspire and motivate others, along with his dedication to serving the community make him a true leader in every sense of the word.”
