Mr. Chris Eyre serves as Partner Emeritus at Legacy Venture. Chris joined Legacy as a Managing Director in 2001 soon after his former partner Jim Anderson shared the unique model he had created with Russ Hall. Chris has witnessed technology investing cycles in Silicon Valley for almost 40 years. He was one of the early venture capitalists as a founding partner of Merrill Pickard Anderson & Eyre (MPAE), the pioneering venture firm that evolved from Bank of America in the 70's. MPAE built a remarkable investment record, and Chris's partners later went on to form Benchmark Capital and Foundation Capital. In addition to his venture capital career, Chris has devoted significant time to family, philanthropy and church service, as well as personal investing. He has worked extensively with youth in a teaching and counseling role. Chris holds a B.S. in Psychology from Utah State University and a MBA from Harvard Business School.
