Bitwise Industries
"Everyone has a really hard job, and they expect you to do it because you can."
As Executive Director of Growth for Bitwise Industries, Channelle Charest ensures creative and cohesive communities in each expansion city, and serves as a matchmaker between America’s underdog cities and Bitwise. She works closely with the VPs of each expansion city to determine the most impactful ways the Bitwise ecosystem can help solve challenges in each location. Strengthening overlooked urban cores has been a long-time focus for Channelle, who’s worked in downtown Fresno for more than a decade doing everything from serving beers at the neighborhood pub to directing projects for a creative design firm.
