Charles Chessher. I am glad to be serving on the Idle Tuesdays board, and consider it an honor to impact the Los Angeles community in this way. I graduated from Baylor University with a double major in Public Relations and Speech Communications. I then went on to work in the music business for four years as a Road Manager. This job took me throughout the nation multiple times, and had me living primarily in Los Angeles and Austin.
I am the President and CEO of The Chessher Group where we specialize in business development, bespoke marketing, and business consulting.
I still continue to have a heart for the music business! My wife, Priscilla Chessher, is a music artist in a group called Promissa. They have been very successful including a nomination for a Latin Grammy Award.
I think great things are going to come from Idle Tuesdays. Follow Charles Chessher on Twitter: @CharlesChessher
