Chuck Carroll

Wireless Consultant

I'm a wireless professional with more than a decade of combined experience in the wireless/mobile industry. I've worked within various fields including site acquisition, digital marketing, retail sales, and service & repair. I've also helped develop strategy and been the voice of major global companies including Qualcomm, HTC, and Google.

When I'm not doing these things, I enjoy training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, reading, and tinkering with computers. I'm currently located in Vancouver, WA.

Endorsements ⭐

I worked with Chuck on a variety of Site Acquisition projects over the course of several years. He is adaptive, collaborative, and dedicated to doing quality work. He consistently maintains a productive attitude, and has a great mind for problem-solving and leveraging efficiency. These qualities make him an asset to any team.
- Brandon Clower, Site Acquisition Manager - Capital Design Services

"Chuck and I worked together at Swift as social media community managers for HTC. He was our resident wireless and mobile expert, which helped the client reach the tech enthusiast audience. He was our go-to person for technical questions and helped elevate the overall knowledge and quality of the community management team. He's also really good at hacky-sack."
- Michael Leveton, Digital Marketing Specialist

"Mr. Carroll is a true social media expert. I hired him for social media strategy and tactics. He explained the industry and technology in very easy to understand fashion. He developed a highly successful content strategy based on marketing and psychology principles. 5 Stars."
- Chase Morinaka, Estate Planning and Business Lawyer

"Chuck was one of the employees I supported during my time at Swift. As a member of the IT team, I was used to dealing with the occasional silly question or easy-to-knock-out ticket for setting up a printer or something equally as mundane. Chuck is one of those users that I loved though because his questions were always ones that made me think, and I never had to worry about something being overlooked before he came to me for help. He's genuine, thorough, and has a keen analytical mind. Any team would benefit from having him as a member!"
