Charles H Strange

Biography

Charles Strange was born in Durham, NC, in 1960. His father liked moving, so until he was 12, he never lived in the same town for more than two years. At the age of 10, he got his first job delivering papers in Princeton, NJ, with a route that took him over rooftops and down fire escapes. In 1972, his family settled in Newton Highlands, MA. As a teenager, he worked in food service jobs from Dunkin' Donuts to Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park.

He was accepted into the prestigious theatre program at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA in 1978. After a stint working professionally as an actor he met his wife, decided to pursue a more stable career, and went back to school. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts - Boston, Magna Cum Laude with a degree in philosophy.

In 1982, he worked in one of the first computer stores, selling Apple computers in Cambridge, MA. In 1984, he moved his family to Tampa, FL, where he worked for Entre Computer Center. It was there he met his future business partner, Phil Humphrey. Humphrey and Strange created The Solution Associates, Inc. in the fall of 1987 to help companies use technology profitably in their businesses. In 1992, he bought his business partner out and is now sole owner and CEO. The Solution Associates has been evolving ever since, and has now settled into a consulting group that helps businesses implement custom software solutions that increase their profitability.
