VP OF SALES AND IMPLEMENTATION
Chuck began his technology career in 1990, working in main-frame processing for the State of Illinois. At the same time, he helped develop a training class for business professionals and state government workers, teaching them to navigate USENET (pre-web internet) to gather business intelligence for competitive advantage and decision making. The knowledge gained during the development of this class has guided him throughout his career to always think about business intelligence and how it impacts decision-making.
Chuck held many software development positions in the 90s, including survey data research, financial and banking systems, and the cable TV industry. At the same time, he worked as a private consultant in manufacturing, writing data capture systems for real-time manufacturing processes.
In 1999, he accepted a job position to rewrite an account system for Y2K compliance; this same company was awarded a project in early 2001 to develop a web-based, online (e-commerce) system for a company selling building controls. Chuck spearheaded that development, and by 2002, that building controls seller had hired Chuck to develop and expand that system; that system's capabilities soon grew beyond the handling of orders to include inventory, project management, customer relations management (CRM), manufacturer/supplier integration, invoicing, and back-office integration all with an eye toward web-based data processing, analysis, and decision making for every person in the company. Since 2005, the platform has been licensed by several other companies, with over 30 websites being built to enable those companies to establish an online presence in the growing web-based marketplace.
In 2013, Jesse Siefert and Chuck partnered and began developing a simple way to handle membership management. Like previously in Chuck's career, the system began to grow, adding our bolt-on solutions: donation management, bill payments, tax payments, POS, event management, and more. eServices continues to grow but always with the foundation of web-based data processing, analysis, and decision-making at its core. Today it is being used for many of the day-to-day functions of EMS, municipalities, school districts, and much more.
Outside of work, Chuck is active in his church and an avid tabletop game player. He plays the drums, enjoys small DIY projects in his shop, and travels with his wife of 30+ years.
