Charles "Charlie" Burnham has spent more than 25 years working with insurance and financial institutions. In 1978, he founded the Burnham Insurance Group, the first provider to fulfill multiple insurance needs in the Southwest Michigan financial services sector. The Battle Creek-based business quickly expanded from three employees to 175, and in 2001 the firm joined HUB International, thereby forging a solid link between insurance and financial institutions at one of the world's largest brokerages.
Charlie served as HUB International Midwest Limited's President & CEO and later as Vice Chairman from 2001-2007. He has been actively involved with leadership development within the HUB network using a variety of assessment instruments, business coaching and training programs.
Charlie currently serves on the Battle Creek Unlimited Executive Board, the Mackinaw Center for Public Policy Advisory Committee, and is the president of the Burnham Family Foundation. He holds a degree in Business Administration from the University of Michigan.
