Senior Manager, Data Center Operations
W. R. Grace & Co
Chuck began his career in information technology within the computer operations field. He previously worked as a computer operator, application programmer, systems programmer, and has held related supervisory and management positions. As he advanced within IT and made the transition into management roles, he realized a needed to supplement his diverse technical knowledge with management and leadership skills. This became increasingly apparent when his areas of responsibility expanded into supporting global, multi-divisional applications and systems.
“I attended my first program, Finance for the Technical Executive, to increase my knowledge in the finance area and assist me in better dealing with that aspect of my responsibilities. I was extremely impressed with the faculty and the way they were able to get a lot of information across in an effective, and somewhat entertaining, manner. My positive experience at this program led me to look into other programs related to my responsibilities, as well as the Executive Certificate program. All of these have been extremely valuable in furthering my career and broadening my business knowledge. I feel I am more effective in dealing with my staff and other parts of the business due to the knowledge I have gained.”
