Being an accountant is literally in Charles’ blood as the son of two CPAs, but it was a university class in international tax that sparked his passion for the niche and decision to become an international tax nerd. After conquering the complex, and often intimidating, field of international taxation at Deloitte, he was a natural fit for Schwartz International, where he serves as an International Tax Senior Advisor.

He particularly relishes the challenge and opportunities that each individual and business client brings, since no two issues are ever completely the same. An Atlanta native whose family counts eight generations in the metro area, Charles earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degree in accounting from the University of Georgia. He is a member of the AICPA and the Georgia Society of CPAs.

At the tender age of 8, Charles began his lifelong relationship with skiing. He was a tri-athlete in high school, participating in basketball, baseball, and wrestling. Sports continue to enrich his life too. In addition to hitting the slopes whenever he can, Charles plays in a co-ed kickball league and a basketball league, which won its 2015 Championship Tournament. He also volunteers at North Point Church, where he is a member. Charles got married November 2016, right after he joined the firm, and the happy couple reside in Atlanta – of course!
