Charles Finch
Biography
Charles Finch is a creative marketing and brand entrepreneur; a “Brand Alchemist” who has worked his magic on a wide range of high-octane profiles, including Dior, Mulberry, Jaeger LeCoultre and the Tribeca Film Festival. Boasting his own impressive entertainment CV - he has written, directed, produced and acted in a score of movies and was Head of International operations at the William Morris Agency - Charles uses his extensive media background as the basis for the marketing and development of brands from Finch & Partners offices in London, New York, Paris and Hong Kong. His range of interests in a variety of silos can be broken down into three distinct categories: Branding, Brand Development and Investment, and Movies.

Over the years, the pre-BAFTA, Oscar and Cannes Film Festival dinners he hosts have become the stuff of legend, seamlessly blending his personal interests with his business output. A serial entrepreneur, he also runs his own leisure and swimwear brand, Chuc’s Dive & Mountain shop. Inspired by the immaculate elegance of his legendary climbing grandfather, George Ingle-Finch and his actor father Peter Finch, this high-end brand has outlets in Mayfair and Notting Hill Gate and recently added a chic Bar & Grill to its flagship Dover Street store. Charles’ irrepressible charm, combined with an innate skill for combining a boutique marketing approach with strategic brand development on a global scale, truly sets his content creation apart from the rest.
