About Chuck

Chuck L. is a writer, marketing and performance improvement consultant with over 20 years of valuable experience. He has two companies.

At one company, he writes business plans, grant requests, B2B and B2C copy, RFP responses and business proposals, creates and implements performance improvement strategies and coaches managers on how to obtain better results through their people. He has helped companies improve their sales, productivity, safety, quality and employee morale through various types of interventions. He has managed teams of up to 25 people and budgets in excess of $10 million.

He is one of four partners at the second company. This business is a St. Louis-based manufacturer and distributor of directional underground boring products. Its initial offering, a patented Directional Underground Boring Bit, is used to create six-inch underground horizontal pathways for pipes/housings that will eventually contain telecommunication, gas, cable and a variety of other utility lines. The bit is different from any boring bit on the market today, as it will drill through all types of earth, including SOLID ROCK!

Chuck has an MBA in Marketing from Washington University in St Louis and a Web Design Certificate from CAIT at Washington University. He is married, has two married step-children and two grandchildren. He grew up in Kansas City and Akron Ohio and currently resides in Manchester MO.
