AESC Highlights Chuck Lew’s Retirement

Chuck Lew Retires from Retained Executive Search Firm He Founded

Charles E. (Chuck) Lew, an industry leader in retained executive search, will retire from the firm he founded at the end of July. The firm, which he began with one partner in 1979, continues to thrive under the leadership of Shana Plott, who was named CEO in 2016. The Charlotte-based firm has clients around the globe.

“Our team and clients are grateful to Chuck for his leadership and friendship,” Plott said. “Chuck has always insisted we provide exceptional client service, do high-quality work and maintain the utmost integrity. We’ll continue on this same path as we expand the business he built.”

“He’s worked long and hard during his career and has earned his retirement,” Plott continued. “We wish him the best as he continues in his roles of hands-on granddad, champion pickleball player and Porsche enthusiast. He’s not going to sit still for long.”

Lew sold his entire stake in the firm to Plott. The sale closed July 12.”
