Charlie is the co-founder and CEO of INO, a bio-materials company leveraging more than 40 years of patented research to create a stronger and more sustainable material composite called: INOArmor. INO’s patented “silk pillows” can be applied to helmets, consumer goods packaging, fragile items, art, and other items to replace toxic EPS foam. Charlie spun INO out of a nonprofit focused on brain injury that he co-founded with his neurosurgeon after Charlie had fully recovered from a severe traumatic brain injury (one that left him in a coma for two weeks and in the hospital for seven months). 

From 2010 to 2015, Charlie was among the first employees at Shapeways, a leading 3D-printing company. Following Shapeways, he was an operating partner at Marvin Traub Associates. He spent his early career at Fidelity Investments and Brown Brothers Harriman before finding his entrepreneurial spirit and starting his nonprofit. Charlie spent five years as a member of the Middlesex Alumni Association Board and served as the head of the career advancement committee. He received his B.A. from Brown University and an M.B.A. from Columbia University.
