Charley was raised in Pebble Beach, moved to San Francisco after college and now lives in Carmel. He was an art major in college, but after a short experience of trying to sell his paintings he went to find work in the business world. First he earned an MBA at the University of Santa Clara, and then started his career in investment management. But he remembered his grandfather’s advice that if you go into business make sure you have art in your life for balance.

Charley started as a securities analyst and portfolio manager first at Crocker Bank, then eventually at his own firm, Osborne Partners Capital Management  in San Francisco. The firm has become quite successful and now manages close to 2 billion dollars, has two offices and 25 employees. In 2018 after 42 years in the business he reduced his responsibilities at the firm and moved back full time to the Monterey Peninsula. In Carmel he is the managing partner of his father Richard’s and Billy Hudson’s development on Rio Road. He is married, has four grown children and does not play golf.

He still has art in his life as he likes to paint, draw and work in stained glass. “Boss, the story of SFB Morse, Founder of Pebble Beach” is his first book.

A sequel about his key employees and friends (Marion Hollins, Byington Ford, Dick Collins, John Gardiner, Frank McComas, Spike Graham and Herb Cerwin), is planned.
