Charles Gaddy

Charles was raised in Wilmington, North Carolina, and obtained his bachelor's degree in history and a minor in computer programming from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences in 1993. Before discovering his passion for computer programming, he explored various majors and colleges within the NC State community, including the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering. These diverse experiences provided Charles with a profound appreciation for the ample opportunities available to students at NC State. In the years after graduation, Charles continued to expand his expertise in coding and program development while working for IBM and First Citizens Bank, where he also gained valuable experience in marketing automation. Subsequently, he served as a consultant and as vice president of products for a start-up in Raleigh before co-founding GDC. The venture was successful, and he had a profitable exit.
