In his 30 years with the Stamford, Connecticut-based company, he brokered the sale, purchase and charter of some of the world’s largest tankers. In 1999, he fulfilled a life-long dream of being in the hotel and restaurant business when he founded the Greenwich Hospitality Group, GHG, which owns and operates boutique hotels and restaurants in and around Connecticut. In the Big Bend region, Charles owns the Holland Hotel and Maverick Inn in Alpine and the Hotel Limpia in Fort Davis. Since investing in the area, he has been a steadfast supporter of the Museum of the Big Bend and Sul Ross State University. Museum of the Big Bend Her- itage Award recognizes those whose contributions help tell the story of the Big Bend for generations to come. Past recipients include Victor J. Smith, Miriam and Emmett McCoy, Leighton and Jim Donnell, Jane and Al Micallef and Family and John Poindexter.
