Channelle
Charest
Vice President of Operations,
Bitwise Industries
"Everyone has a really hard job, and they expect you to do it because you can."
Channelle is a Fresno native who’s worked and lived in downtown Fresno for 10+ years. She has done everything from serve beers at the neighborhood pub to direct projects for a local design firm. She is the VP of operations for Bitwise Industries, where she oversees the company’s eclectic range of events, ensures creative and cohesive communities in each location, and serves as a matchmaker between the needs of Fresno and the tech ecosystem that is Bitwise.

Reflecting on her Bitwise experience, Channelle is most surprised by the opportunity each team member gets to be independently successful and company supported in a completely genuine way.
