Before founding Navigate Politics, Charles led the Government Affairs function for one of Europe’s largest aerospace manufacturers. He worked for a number of Members of Parliament in the lead up to and during the early years of the Coalition Government, including in the Shadow Cabinet and then Cabinet. He is an avid hiker and cricketer; but will freely admit that, however keen, he is a dreadful batsman.
Andrew joined Navigate in 2018, after completing a Master’s degree in Conflict, Security and Development at the University of Exeter, following an undergraduate degree in Economics and Politics, also at Exeter.

The self-appointed Chief Morale Officer, Ghillie’s enthusiasm and determination to succeed has seen him hit career heights others only dream of. A fan of hot desking, he chooses a laissez-faire approach to where he sits and what he does in the office. Outside working hours he can be found in a local park or wood covered in mud, or destroying the latest ‘indestructible’ toy purchased for him at great expense.
