Podcast Episode 18: A Chat with Charles Bamford (’55)

July 29, 2021 | 632 views

Welcome to Episode 18 of The Darlington Podcast! 

In this Darlington Connects episode, Julie Lucas ('97), chief advancement officer, catches up with Charles Bamford ('55), a recruiter in the energy industry since 1986. Julie and Charles chat about his time at Darlington and Georgia Tech and how his curiosity about technology has guided his career. 

In 2012, Charles’ firm, Rockwood Energy Search, began focusing on clean energy companies. Seeing an opportunity to work on important issues and in rapidly-growing job sectors, Rockwood now works exclusively in renewables, primarily in the solar and energy storage sectors. Clean Energy Careers, a sister company of Rockwood Energy Search, is his subscription-based consulting service for cleantech technologies and the industries that use them. Companies in those areas rely on him to find candidates who are committed to improving the planet’s climate health and qualified to do the work that will help them succeed. 

Charles has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech and a MBA in Quantitative Methods from The Stern School of Business at New York University. He has lived in South Florida, Georgia, the Texas Gulf Coast, Boston, Los Angeles, New Jersey (THE SHORE) and now lives in New York City.
