As the elder statesman of the team, Charles has worked on several iconic deals during his impressive career, not least Matalan and Massey Ferguson, though his career actually began as a Production Engineer at Dowty Ltd and Production Manager at Mardon Packaging International, before moving to Granville Baird Private Equity in 1987.

“I believe there is an ‘Inflexion way’ that I have not witnessed elsewhere, which consists of a strong, open culture that encourages and respects opinions and viewpoints from all, enabling us to make informed, balanced decisions whilst at the same time, being able to analyse and optimise processes and strategy.”
