Originally from New York City, Charles began thinking about business early in life from his stoop in Brooklyn, where he and his closest friends would discuss ways they could "make it big" someday. After high school, he moved to Boston to attend Bentley University, where he studied management and organizational development. During the summer months, Charles would apply what he was learning in college to his various jobs managing hospitality clubs.
After graduation, Charles found his calling in hotels and sought to learn everything about the business. Twenty years later, his background includes experience both at the property and corporate-level, including a 10-year leadership role at Hilton Worldwide. A proven leader at driving performance, Charles is working at his best when he is building engaged teams and helping others achieve peak performance.
