America’s leading Christian CEO forum, building GREAT businesses for a GREATER purpose.

Regardless of how long you’ve been a business leader, you probably still have those days when you are keenly aware of the gaps in your knowledge and experience. The challenge for many of us is that we don’t set aside time to work “on” our business rather than “in” it. We might read books, attend industry seminars or even engage consultants, but we don’t regularly schedule time to focus on big-picture issues. The C12 Group is a unique forum for Christian CEOs and business owners who are intentional about business, ministry and personal growth.

Chuck Eapen

Chair

Chuck comes to his role as C12’s Northern New Jersey Area Chair with over 20 years of experience that integrates his faith and his profession.  After completing his engineering studies in Long Island NY, he moved to San Diego CA.  In the midst of his early career, Chuck and his wife, Betty, encountered the person of Jesus Christ through the work of International Discipleship Ministries Inc.  He served IDM as its Executive Director and taught others about Jesus in corporate and church settings while pursuing his corporate interests.

Chuck began his corporate career with a fledgling start-up.  As the company grew, he rose the corporate ladder refining his skills in sales, marketing and operations, he found opportunities to share his faith in Christ with his co-workers and saw his managers and colleagues come to Christ.  He eventually became the company’s COO and general manager.  Over the years, Chuck experienced the booms and busts of the telecom sector and worked with Fortune companies including Motorola, Siemens, Ericsson and many others in the highly competitive world of telecom component sales & manufacturing.  In time, the Lord brought yet another start-up opportunity to Chuck and he entered the telecom equipment sector.  Here, he honed his skills at managing people and programs across international markets with CLECs, ISPs and various cellular/data operators across the Asia-Pacific Rim.  He became the company’s president and served as a mentor to a number of individuals who enjoy success today.  But the Lord had even more in store!  Eventually, the Lord led Chuck and his family back to the east coast to begin his own start-up and to be with their extended family while pursuing graduate theological studies.

Chuck and Betty have been married 20+ years and have one son, Zachariah, and make their home in Bergen County.  Chuck is an alumnus of SUNY Stony Brook and Alliance Theological Seminary (Nyack College) where he received his BE and MA degrees, respectively.  Chuck has a heart to see others grow in their walk with Jesus Christ through active discipleship and mentoring in the marketplace.  The C12 Group of Northern New Jersey invites you to join us as we build GREAT Businesses for an Even GREATER Purpose … together!
