A ten-year spell at JWT followed where he worked on a host of business including: Kellogg’s, Reckitt Benckiser, the Royal Air Force, Rolex and HSBC.
Next came a couple of years at McCann Erickson, heading up the Account Management department and MasterCard business.
Since then, Charles spent eight years launching and growing Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Europe. Alongside his duties as Head of Client Services, he ran: Burger King, Paddy Power, KP Snacks, Turkish Airlines, Hotels.com and XBOX.
Last year, Charles took great delight in reuniting with his ex-Executive Creative Directors from CP+B in their new creative venture – Who Wot Why.
In his spare time he makes a valiant attempt at raising his three teenagers.
