Charlie Schumacher



Charlie joined Liolios in 2018 as an analyst in the technology, media and telecom (TMT) vertical.

Prior to Liolios, Charlie served as Chief of Staff at a publishing company and served as a consultant to a cryptocurrency/blockchain startup focused on building smart contracts. Previously, Charlie worked as an actor in New York City. He performed in plays, television, short films, and independent features. While pursuing acting, Charlie also worked as a strength and conditioning coach and as a personal trainer.
