Who is
Charles & Chase?

Early in 2004, the founders of The Charles & Chase Group, Ted Zoltko and Jason Ranney, joined forces to begin their new joint venture in the State of Florida. Although inspired by many in their respective careers, they had proudly named their newly formed Florida corporation in honor of their most influential “life and career” mentors.

“Charles” Zoltko (father of Ted Zoltko) was a master carpenter, builder-remodeler, and General Contractor. (1931-2003)

Laurence F. “Chase” (grandfather of Jason Ranney) was a WWII highly decorated soldier, electrical engineer, and Vermont State Representative. (1915-2015)

During their lives, they continually instilled values of hard-work ethics, hands-on trade experience, engineering concepts, and general business skills that helped mold the partners of Charles & Chase. To this day, Ted and Jason remain grateful and fortunate for such a valued education bestowed on them.
