Burch credits his upbringing in a middle-class family of ten with developing an entrepreneurial mindset early on in his life. His innovative brand creations are filled with an entrepreneurial background dating back to his collegiate days at Ithaca College. Chris Burch and his brother Bob began Eagle’s Eye clothing apparel with only $2,000 in their pockets. They would buy sweaters at a low price and sell them times one third the cost. Eagle’s Eye soon developed into a label worth $165 million. The brand was sold to Swire Group after that but was only the beginning for Chris Burch’s business track.
He helped establish previous partner Tory Burch’s fashion brand, a company now reaching its billion dollar mark. Chris Burch himself has been featured on Forbes’ list of billionaires since 2013. Burch continues to stimulate interest with his ongoing business projects involving commercial hospitality ventures and real-estate investments as well as e-commerce shares. Chris Burch is currently involved in various philanthropies including as a lead board member of the Rothman Institute of Orthopedics Foundation and a donor at Mt. Sinai Hospital New York research center (entrepreneur.com). Burch is committed to making his business ventures mean more than a wealth investment and has initiated a partnership between Nihiwatu Resort and the Sumba Foundation, an organization targeting poverty in the Sumba Island of Indonesia. Now visitors vacationing at Nihi Sumba Island can enhance their stay at the resort through meaningful volunteering opportunities with the foundation. Burch also donated 1.3 million dollars to Tilton high school in 2013 where he attended as a young boy in New Hampshire.
