He built a global network based on global based on trust, loyalty, kpi, all grounded in execution and meeting company goals. I have always followed Charlie’s guidance and recommendations as a supplier and as a businessman. Often I reach out to discuss topics of the day and the ever changing sourcing landscape.

To improve our product development and sourcing needs, we turned to Charlie to leverage his extensive experience in the area. He exceeded our expectations on a daily basis and was pivotal in securing overseas production for our clothing in addition to identifying inefficiencies in our processes which increased profits and scalability. With Charlie, we not only received a consultant, but his services felt more like a partnership and he truly cared about our business and its prosperity going above and beyond the scope of work initially agree upon. I would highly recommend him for any business looking to improve their product procurement process.
