James Briggs

James Briggs had the idea of starting an Electronics Repair Business in the valley since he discovered there weren’t very many options for residents, after visiting the Valley for the first time in 2017. Creede Bytes was founded in January of 2018 and he opened the first location in March of 2018 in Creede, Colorado. In the Fall of 2018, James discovered that moving the business to South Fork would be more beneficial for everyone in the area, as it’s more conveniently located. James has also designed and helped maintain the new South Fork Chamber website with the vision to help the South Fork Chamber and other local businesses grow to their full potential.
