Marketing & Community

Charlie Taylor

Charlie’s the Marketing and Community Director at Tenzing and is responsible for building the brand, showing entrepreneurs what life would be like if they were backed by Tenzing, and delivering great content to help management teams grow and scale their businesses faster.

With a background in growth marketing at some of the world’s leading B2B tech businesses, she joined the team as a catalyst for community-building. Her face lights up when she talks about bringing people together, so we knew she was the right person to run one of Tenzing’s Specialist Support Networks, connecting marketing professionals across the portfolio.

Charlie was introduced to Tenzing by our Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Glenn Elliott. The two of them did some of their best work together at Reward Gateway, the HR tech company Glenn founded, so it was only a matter of time before they were reunited.

Although private equity is a brand new world for her (she has to look at this Founder-friendly glossary of PE terms and concepts at least five times a day), joining Tenzing with a brief to break the PE mould was an opportunity she couldn’t turn down.

Favourite celebration

All of them – she loves a party. But if she had to choose, it would be a toss up between:

  • Christmas – she’s one of those people who buys their tree at the end of November (much to her husband’s annoyance).
  • Her birthday – birthdays are a big deal in her family and she’ll be sure to let you know hers is coming up from the day after her next birthday.
