Biography

Began his career as a writer, director and producer, responsible for movies such as Where Sleeping Dogs Lie, Bad Girls and Spider. Mr Finch is founder and Chief Executive of the Finch's Quarterly Review, an online magazine that covers everything from fashion to films and parties to people. After working as an agent at William Morris, he formed Artists Independent Management, now Finch & Partners - a talent management company representing and advising artists, brands and cultural organisations. His pre-BAFTA and Oscar parties are legendary and he recently opened CHUCS DIVE & MOUNTAIN SHOP at 31 Dover St, Mayfair, bringing movie business pedigree and luxury savvy to his leisure wear start-up. ‘Chucs’, a schoolboy nickname for Charles who grew up in Jamaica and France, aims to add a touch of old world glamour, style and elegance to leisure wear. Men’s style fact: Charles’ grandfather, George Ingle Finch, invented the puffa or down-filled jacket before ascending Everest with Mallory in 1922. www.finchandpartners.com
