Charlie has been the President of Workrite Ergonomics, the North American leader in office ergonomic products, for the past five years. Under his leadership, the company has experienced tremendous organic growth, nearly doubling in size between 2012 and 2016. During this same period EBITDA growth outpaced revenue growth and, at over 20%, far exceeded industry average.
In May 2016, the company added another 25% in sales through the strategic acquisition of ISE, a competitor located in Toronto Canada. This bold move created an international base of operations as well as a footprint to continue the growth of Workrite’s business along the east coast.
“Workrite’s growth is the result of a team effort that allowed us to recognize trends and quickly seize market opportunities through aggressive sales practices, superior supply chain and customer service performance, and innovative new product introductions. Building on the 25 year history and entrepreneurial spirit that our founders created has been the highlight of my professional career. “
Prior to Workrite Charlie spent the majority of his career in the building products industry where he held a variety of general management, marketing, sales and leadership positions with companies such as General Electric (GE), Masco Corporation and Franke.
