PEOPLE OF GLOBAL SYNTHETIC ICE
expertise in ice skating and Synthetic ice rink operation who founded and run it
Chris Crowley is the new owner of Global Synthetic Ice. He is originally from Long Island, New York and spent his adolescent years in New Mexico. He’s been in Tampa since 1999.
Chris has spent his entire life on ice skates. He was originally strapped into skates at 3-years old by his hockey-loving mom who made him walk in the house with the skates on to strengthen his ankles. To this day, Chris is an active skater, hockey player, coach, and fan. His dedication to and love of skating knows no bounds. Even his 9-year old son, Brycen, uses synthetic ice at home to practice for all of his hockey games!
Hard work and dedication come natural to Chris. Putting his strengths to work, he has helped to build a family environment for all customers and inspires athletes to become better in their sport. It was only natural that he started and ran Synthetic Ice Concepts the past 10 years. He brings over 30 years of experience in the hockey industry! The business enabled Chris to develop and nurture strong relationships. During his time with Synthetic Ice Concepts, Chris catered to large cities, corporate partners, seasonal mall displays and home setups. In May of 2020 Chris became the new owner of Global Synthetic Ice and continued to help grow and expand GSI to many countries.
With this wealth of knowledge, passion for the sport, an amazing team and an insatiable thirst for innovation, Global Synthetic Ice will continue to remain on top of the industry.
