Chuck comes from the trenches of enterprise Salesforce development. A developer and consultant on the platform for the last decade, he holds 21 Salesforce certifications and is a Salesforce MVP. Entrepreneurial by nature, he took his most recent startup, Valence, an ISV with a native integration product on the AppExchange through the inaugural batch of the Salesforce Incubator. First and foremost a technology architect, Chuck focuses on communication: between technical and business teams, disparate technology stacks and systems, different layers of an enterprise architecture. He is constantly innovating and pushing the Salesforce platform to do novel, clever things in real-world projects. Having two professors as parents, Chuck comes to education naturally and even worked as an adjunct professor teaching graduate students at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. Chuck sees education as a service to his community, a way to give back and serve others. He is a regular speaker and organizer at Dreamforce and other Salesforce-centric conferences, as well as at a variety of other technology conferences and events. Chuck is also group leader for the Salesforce Hawaii User Group. When not on the road at conferences and teaching, Chuck can be found at home in Honolulu where he runs his ISV business and serves on the selection and mentor committee for the Honolulu-based Blue Startups accelerator.
