Charles Alvarez – CEO
Charles started his career as Management Consultant for Andersen Consulting (now Accenture). During his 6 years at Andersen, Charles worked with Fortune 500 energy companies such as Dynegy, Torch Energy, Shell, El Paso, Western Gas Resources, and Chesapeake implementing business process changes, which allowed them to grow and expand well beyond what they thought possible. Charles lead several multi-million-dollar project teams in delivering solutions that made his clients’ businesses run more smoothly, scaling their business exponentially to reach their financial objectives.
After a successful tenure at Andersen Consulting, Charles started a financial consulting practice through Smith Barney and UBS. Within 8 years, he had created a thriving business that generated over $1 million per year in revenue. Charles brought a consultative and educational approach to his financial services business in order to help his clients reach their financial goals.
With 9 years in financial services, Charles turned his attention back to his first love – business consulting. Focusing his passion towards entrepreneurs, he became a Certified Small Business Coach through Focal Point International. Charles now works with business owners to deliver the freedom and joy they used to dream about when they first got into business. Using the same consultative and educational approach that brought him success throughout his career, he delivers value and expertise to his clients, allowing them to scale and grow. Charles uses his management consulting and business development experience to “franchise” his clients’ businesses by implementing marketing, sales, and productivity strategies and tactics.
Charles and his team at Cornerstone Growth Solutions work with business owners and sales teams to increase their sales by 25 to 30 percent over a 6 to 12-month period, guaranteed. The guarantee is simple: if they do not deliver the expected sales results, they will simply return the investment.
Charles Alvarez is a graduate of Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Charles is married to his wife Beth of 12 years and has 4 of the best children in the world. In his “spare” time, Charles likes to read the Bible and books on marketing and sales best practices.
