Professional Golfer and Brand Ambassador, Mercedes-Benz

Growing up, CHRIS ARCENEAUX saw many of his peers without opportunities or positive role models in their lives to be successful. This stayed with Chris throughout his childhood and motivated him to make a difference in the lives of young people.

Through Darby Foundation, Chris brings opportunity, purpose and focus to those individuals that would not otherwise be exposed to such life altering experiences. His professional career including community leader, entrepreneur, educator, and professional athlete are the blueprint that shapes the efforts for Darby Foundation.

With strong passion, resiliency and unwavering commitment Chris has always found a way to achieve his goals no matter the obstacle. He credits this drive to his young days when he found golf as a way to channel his energy and talents into a positive pursuit. Chris has demonstrated incredible leadership skills and seeks to share his experience by creating pathways for success.

In addition to his philanthropic efforts, Chris is a Celebrity Ambassador for Mercedes-Benz and other notable brands, Professional Golfer, and Professor at Nassau Community College.

“It is a lifetime pursuit of mine to turn the principles of business success into the principles of human significance.”
