Chuck Baumberg

Chuck was born in Vancouver, but having a British father who was a development manager moved him around as a child to Australia, England, and Hong Kong, eventually bringing him back to Canada as a young teen. After completing a major in mathematics at the University of Victoria, Chuck moved to England to pursue a professional rugby career which eventually landed him in London playing in the English Championship.

Alongside playing rugby, Chuck began working for Merrill Lynch on the fixed-income trading desk. During his time there he sold bonds and structured credit products to large institutional investors, including hedge funds, pension funds, and insurance companies. A large component of the role involved working with corporate management teams to actively market new debt instruments and raise funds for various corporate purposes.

Chuck moved back home to BC in 2016 to develop an inland surf park in the lower mainland (an ongoing endeavour) while also continuing his career in finance, running business development for a Canadian asset management company. Chuck now resides in Squamish with his wife and young son and is an avid mountain biker, climber, and skier and works full-time for Select Contracts as a Business Development Director overseeing global sales, business planning, market & analytics, and financial consulting on the company’s global leisure projects.
