Communications Director (Ketchum Pleon Change)
It has been a pleasure having Chuck build and support our program communication site. He’s technical, but more importantly, he really understands our communication and business requirements. He is willing to work with us every step of the way from our initial content assessment through design and implementation. I continue to recommend Chuck to my peers!

Senior Technology Engagement Manager (Avenade)
Chuck is an exceptional consultant with the ability to match business process with technical capability. What always impressed me about him was not that he had all the answers, but that he knew to ask the right questions. By identifying the critical business issues he was always able to help clients implement the best plan to improve their business.

Talent Manager (Robert Half Technology)
Chuck is one of those IT consultants that makes ANYONE look good. He is an expert in SharePoint, and more importantly and expert on being a professional consultant; he does what he says he will do and always delivers on his promises. He represents the top 1% of all software consultants I’ve worked with in the past 5 years and would recommend him without reservation.
