What Charlie values about his career… I focus on creating material value for a company’s constituents, stabilize businesses and find well-capitalized buyers. Particularly relish Asgaard’s successes in retaining/rebooting companies in less affluent areas, thereby supporting families of company employees and suppliers, and tax bases that support critical community services.
