Chuck has been given the affectionate title, '''CHULK''', at ICANN meetings thanks to all the heavy lifting he does and his rare "green" moods.
Mr. Gomes also worked for Verisign's predecessor, [[Network Solutions]], which was the original registry that managed [[.com]], [[.net]], and other [[TLD]]s before even the inception of [[ICANN]] and the later takeover of the company by [[Verisign]] in 2000. From 1995 to 1999, he led customer service in support of Network Solution’s Internet domain name registration services. During this time, he saw staff grow from 25 to 220 and the number of domain registrations grow from about 135,000 to over 3.4 million. Previously at Network Solutions, Mr. Gomes managed various programs and projects involving delivery of technical services to U.S. state and federal government agencies. Projects ranged in scope from data center construction and equipment/software procurement to computer center operations, training and information center support.
Before joining Network Solutions in 1984, Mr. Gomes was a secondary school math teacher. He has a Master of Education degree from Boston University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics from the University of California at Davis.<ref>[http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/index.php/component/chronocontact/?chronoformname=2011ResourceBioView&wspid=337 Panelist Bio, Intgovforum.org]Retrieved 23 Jan 2013</ref>
