President & CEO
Charles “Chuck,” Schue is happiest when discovering innovative technology solutions and collaborating with dynamic, talented colleagues to undertake the application of those solutions to unique business challenges. Chuck believes the best part of his job is helping make clients successful. For him, a fundamental part of achieving that success is nurturing positive relationships and loyalty between our excellent employees and customers. He is a firm believer in Frederick Reichheld’s Net Promoter Score, a simple survey tool that helps inform the loyalty of a firm's relationships. One of Chuck’s spare-time activities is restoring grandfather clocks. He thinks they are a marvel of craftsmanship that blends beautiful wood cabinetry and high-quality mechanical movements to make precision time machines. As with a great team, when all the components of a Grandfather clock are working together, the results are mesmerizing.
