Charles Wilson

Consultant, Equity

Charles joined One Search at the end of 2021 to support the expansion of the Equity practice in North America. He brings nearly a decade of search experience to the team, having successfully placed dozens of senior investment professionals and c-suite leaders throughout his career with firms such as BlackRock, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, and TPG Capital. Charles is a firm believer that in the war for top talent, there is no substitute for prompt delivery, overcommunication, or attention to detail. 

Prior to One Search, Charles was the head of the southern US for a global financial services search business, where he helped open the Texas office from day one and built and multiple specialist coverage teams from scratch.  

Charles quite literally lives and breathes recruitment – he comes from three generations of search professionals and is even engaged to an executive search professional. In the rare moments he spends not talking shop, Charles likes to spend his time, playing poker with friends, cooking, and attending concerts.
