Christopher G. Downs Building & Grounds Coordinator

Peoria, IL


I worked for a television company doing maintenance and janitorial services, but lended a hand for the production side when needed. I also worked in maintenance and as a janitorial supervisor for a dental laboratory fixing tools and building maintenance. I have also had experience in office supply delivery and as a laborer for construction projects around the area where I learned various jobs and made contacts with different contractors. In 2011, I joined DVI.

What is your favorite thing about DVI?

I'm trusted here to do my job and feel respected. I get to talk about deer and turkey with all our visitors. I also get to have interesting conversations with clients and guests about the plants and wildlife in the area.

Tell us one thing about you that might be surprising:

I decorate my house yard every year at Christmas. We're known in the neighborhood as the “Griswold” house.

There’s a Team Behind Every DVI Team Member

DVI is not one person. Our clients come to understand that although they may interact with particular team members more than others, there is a multi-disciplinary team of professionals hard at work for them, collaborating each and every day on their behalf.

Fiduciary from the Start

Our founder, David Vaughan, created DVI over 45 years ago with an instinctive fiduciary mindset. He wanted to help his neighbors and community members grow and protect the financial success they had achieved in their lives. By building trust, he built a business that has grown in size and services. Today, we carry David's legacy forward with more comprehensive offerings to serve the ever-changing needs of our clients in Central IL and Central FL.
