A search process for his successor will be initiated by the Board and led by Wilmington’s Chairman, Mark Asplin. Charles will remain as Wilmington’s Chief Executive while this search takes place before handing over to his successor as part of an orderly transition.
Charles joined the Board of Wilmington in 1999 after the Group acquired Central Law Group, the training business he founded in 1985. He became Chief Executive in 2002 and has led the transformation of the Wilmington Group from a trade magazine and directory publisher focused primarily on the UK into a leading provider of information, compliance and education to professional markets. The Group is now a well-balanced business which is increasingly international, now employing over 850 people and with 35% of its business derived outside the UK.
