Charlie is Head of Private Equity at RSM UK and has over 20 years’ experience in the private equity market, having worked with a broad range of private equity, venture capital and special situations funds in Europe. He leads the growth of RSM’s Private Equity (PE) business, building and co-ordinating teams that focus on a PE fund’s finance function (running the money), its transactions (buying and selling companies) and its portfolio (helping make those companies more valuable).
Prior to joining RSM Charlie worked at a PE fund in investor relations and as a placement agent, giving him experience of raising money for PE funds as well as helping them to invest. This experience enables RSM to provide strategic advice to clients and helps us deliver each of our services with the understanding of our clients’ overall objectives.
Asked what gets him out of bed in the mornings, Charlie replies:
I have always loved working in an environment where you can bring together bright people, a bold plan and the funding to make it happen. It’s fun and immensely satisfying to play a role in that process.
Away from work, Charlie embarks on overly ambitious DIY projects and plays several musical instruments less well than he used to. He also enjoys running, is a very mediocre surfer and a keen golfer.
