Charlie started his HR career more than 13 years ago, discovering quickly his gift and passion for talent acquisition. He developed recruiting skills and insights working at an agency, but also recognized a need for a different type of recruiting firm – one that aligns people with company profits. This became the founding principle of BlueWave. Charlie constantly strives to make BlueWave the pivot point for talented professionals who are seeking job enrichment and organizations needing effective contributors. As an angel investor with WetPaint Capital, Charlie actively supports start-ups in Central Florida. He spends off-time with his wife and two girls or, when he can sneak it in, surfing.
