Charles J. “Chuck” French
Chief Growth Officer

Chuck plays basketball once a week because he enjoys the competition, but he’s spent most of his career helping companies avoid it through differentiation. He's done it in financial services, healthcare IT, and now telecom.

Chuck joined Mutare as Chief Growth Officer in February 2018 and is leading efforts to position the company for the next stage of its growth. Although he likens Mutare to a “perpetual start-up” because of its twenty-eight year history of developing new technology, it’s not.

Mutare has financial stability, delivers proven technology used by thousands of clients, provides world-class client support and enjoys a reputation as being the “easiest partner to work with”. Chuck is bolstering these attributes with seasoned solution-oriented sales and marketing professionals, an increasingly focused and impactful product line, and a broadening network of business partners.  

Prior to joining Mutare, Chuck was co-founder and CEO of Uniphy Health, a nationally recognized leader in HIPAA compliant secure communications. Earlier in his career, Chuck led institutional sales and marketing for Stratford Advisory Group (now Pavilion Financial). In a separate entrepreneurial venture, Chuck designed and marketed new products for the banking industry.   

Chuck received his BS from Northwestern University and MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. He is a member of the steering committee for the Health Care Council of Chicago (HC3).
