Chris Berry BIO:

Based in Washington, DC, Chris Berry has been an independent analyst for the past fourteen years with a focus on battery metals supply chains, including lithium, cobalt, graphite, nickel, copper, vanadium, and rare earths. His work supports a roster of global clients, including investors, mining companies, oil and gas companies, and EV manufacturers across six continents.

His advisory work has a specific focus on how battery metals supply chains are evolving to create opportunities and threats during the energy transition in the coming decades. Aside from traditional supply, demand and pricing analysis, his recent work has focused on battery recycling, alternative extraction technologies, and how battery metals will play an increasingly strategic role in geopolitical and supply chain realignment.

Before shifting focus to analysis of these trends, Chris gained twelve years of capital markets experience on both the buy side and sell side. He has visited and performed economic analysis of metals deposits on six continents and has been featured in multiple media outlets, including the Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, NPR, the South China Morning Post, Al Jazeera, and CNN International.

Chris holds a Master of Business Administration in finance with an international focus from Fordham University, and a Bachelor of Arts in international studies from The Virginia Military Institute.
