Tagence was formed from the Information Solutions division of UrsaNav, Inc., a diversified engineering and technology company, and we carry with us the engineer’s desire to find and solve interesting problems. From UrsaNav we also bring our twelve year history of successful performance, our customer base, and our employees, with their passion for excellence and their knowledge of our customers’ needs.
Our name, “Tagence,” comes from the words DATA and INTELLIGENCE, reflecting our existing expertise in information management and a forward-looking interest in helping organizations to understand, control and use all of their business data in novel ways.
Founder and CEO
Charles A. (Chuck) Schue is the Founder and CEO of Tagence, where his role includes providing a level of continuity with the past, developing the strategic vision shaping its future, and acting as its “Architect of Ideas”.
Chuck’s philosophy is to put the human back into the information technology loop, thereby enabling people as knowledge workers. In his role as CEO, he continually scans for innovative, leading edge solutions that will help our customers focus on their missions, and not the technology. In support of Chuck’s philosophy, Tagence provides an innovative package of transformative software solutions and comprehensive change management methodologies that fully supports Digital Government and its private sector equivalence.
Chuck began his journey into data intelligence in the fall of 2000. At that time, he started one of the first Value-Added Reseller businesses based on the then Tower Software Total Records Information Management product. During the same time, he was part of the team developing the Total Information Awareness strategy for DARPA, now called Terrorism Information Awareness.
He was formerly President and CEO of Ursa Navigation Solutions, Inc. (aka “UrsaNav”), a company he co-founded in 2004. He built UrsaNav from a business focused on C3ISR at two locations in Reston and Chesapeake, VA to a multi-faceted company with four major business units spread over six locations in South Carolina, Virginia, and Massachusetts in the USA, and Belgium.
In 2009, he acquired EDRM Solutions and combined it with existing internal IT resources to build a very successful business unit focused on Information Asset Management, including electronic document and records management solutions for government agencies and highly regulated industries, nationally and internationally.
In 2015, as part of his vision to provide executive opportunities for his senior leaders, Chuck decided to split UrsaNav into three standalone businesses, one of which is Tagence, Inc.
Chuck holds a BSEET from DeVry University, an MSEE from the Naval Postgraduate School, an MSEM from Western New England College, and an (Executive) MBA from George Mason University. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and ASQ, a Certified Quality Engineer and Auditor, and a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation.
