Who we are

We are proven leaders at the intersection of business, talent, research, and journalism who are obsessed with reimagining workplaces for the future.

Charter’s co-founders have led teams of hundreds of people in navigating periods of intense organizational and sectoral change. Charter is the resource that they wished they had along the way.

The company was started in 2020 as a newsletter by Kevin Delaney, a former Wall Street Journal managing editor and co-founder of Quartz, who was joined by co-founders Erin Grau, former head of People and Culture at Away and head of Transformation at The New York Times, and Jay Lauf, co-founder of Quartz and former publisher of The Atlantic and Wired. In 2022, a number of institutions and individuals invested in Charter with the goal of further expanding its impact.

Our exceptional, experienced team includes leaders from the technology and media industries, with both consumer and business-to-business expertise. Get to know us below.
