INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Christopher Day, Managing Principal of Navidar Group, an investment banking firm with offices in Indianapolis and New York City, was named one of the region’s top “Forty Under 40” by the Indianapolis Business Journal. The award recognizes local business and professional leaders who have achieved success before the age of forty by demonstrating leadership, initiative and dedication in pursuing their careers and who are likely to continue to achieve success in the future.

“I am humbled by this recognition and am grateful to have had the good fortune of working with excellent partners and smart investors in a business-friendly climate like Indiana’s,” said Day. “Without their support and counsel my past entrepreneurial accomplishments would not have been possible.”

Day has launched several successful ventures in industries such as telecommunications, high tech, real estate development, utilities and investment banking. In June 2009, at the age of 39, Christopher co- founded Navidar Group, his fifth venture, along with several technology investment banking veterans.

Other successful ventures co-founded by Day include ViaStar Energy, which provided automated meter reading services for water, gas and electric utilities. He grew the company from startup to operations in 13 states. In 2007, Day and his partner sold the majority of ViaStar assets to a Fortune 100 company and the outsourced billing services division to a competitor. In 1992, he co-founded StarCom Broadband, a private cable and internet company that operated throughout the Midwest. Day and his partner sold the majority of StarCom Broadband’s assets to Comcast in 2001.

Day is currently president of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), Indiana chapter, an organization that enables entrepreneurs to learn and grow from each other, leading to greater business success and an enriched personal life. He received his degree from Purdue University and resides in the Indianapolis area with his wife and son.
