Prior to embarking on a career in the financial services industry, Chuck served three years as an officer in the U.S. Army, and retired as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve with 30 years of total service.

In 1991 he was granted the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designations.
