Chris Lihzis: President
Some could argue that Chris has been with The Alpha Group since he was 3 months old, which would be accurate. The Alpha Group was started by Chris’ mom, Karin Lihzis, in 1981. The skills needed to be successful have been part of him since infancy (literally for both the company and Chris). In fact, he may have learned how to put the pieces of the placement puzzle together before he could even walk.

Chris has been an employee of, and now president, The Alpha Group since 2001. This experience has allowed and assisted Chris in learning to put the employment puzzle together, effectively matching clients (businesses) with employees. His ability to ask the right questions and listen – to both the verbal conversation and body language – allows him to determine what will work best for all parties in regards to job placement.

In addition to his strong communication skills, Chris’ down-to-earth nature and sense of humor puts people at ease. Combine this with his integrity and honesty, candidates and clients warm up to him quickly, trusting him to have everyone’s best interest at heart.

When asked what one thing he enjoys most about The Alpha Group, Chris stated, “the people and the puzzles of matching clients with workers.” With his background and experience Chris is able to do this quickly and effectively.

When not working, Chris can be found at home with his wife, three kids, and two dogs. He spends his free time working on his yard, travel, and enjoying fine food. On Patriot’s game day you will find Chris either tailgating at the game or in front of his tv – yelling and cheering.

One of Chris’ favorite quotes that he lives by is, “It’s not the days in your life, but the life in your days that count.”

Karin Lihzis: Founder & CEO
Karin was born and raised in Norton, MA. After moving around the US for several years, with her husband and family, they settled back in Norton. It was at this time, in 1981, that The Alpha Group was started. Karin had an idea – to create a staffing agency that would put the puzzle pieces together – matching the client (business) with the candidate (job seeker). Alpha's goal continues to “be the best at what we do, not the biggest.”
