Chief Executive Officer at Green Toys Inc.
I grew up in the consumer packaged goods industry as my grandfather Sol founded On-Cor frozen foods. Most recently, I worked as the Senior Associate at 2x Consumer Products Growth Partners, a consumer focused growth equity fund. While there, I evaluated more than 1,000 deals, co-led the underwriting and due diligence for Beanitos, a healthy snack food company, and evaluated other potential investments. I also served as a Board Observer for both Tasty Bite and Beanitos, helping implement both financial and sales strategies to create value for the companies. Prior to joining 2X Consumer Products Growth Partners, I worked at On-Cor Frozen Foods in various capacities, including Director of Corporate Strategy, Marketing Manager and Area Sales Manager. I began my career with Crossmark Inc. in a management rotational program. I received a BA from University of Michigan and an MBA from The Kellogg School of Management, where I graduated as a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma Society. Charles currently serves on the JCYS board, is an avid Chicago sports fan and obsessively cheers for the Michigan Wolverines.
