Charlie Garcia

Managing PArtner

Charlie’s life purpose is to inspire and connect others to achieve extraordinary things.

After attending the U.S. Air Force Academy, Charlie served five years as an intelligence officer before being appointed to the prestigious White House Fellows program. After earning an MPA from the University of Oklahoma and a J.D. from Columbia Law School, Charlie founded and later sold Sterling Financial, an investment bank and wealth management firm with sixty offices in eight countries (the international operations are now a part of UBS).


He has worked under five U.S. Presidents from both parties. President Barack Obama appointed him to chair a board consisting of four U.S. Senators, four Congressmen, and seven presidential appointments to oversee all operations at the Air Force Academy. He was awarded the Distinguished Public Service Medal by the Secretary of the Air Force, who credited him with leading “a historic transformation.” He also served four years on the seven-member Florida State Board of Education, where he oversaw the state’s $15 billion budget and drew up the blueprint for dramatic, sustained improvement in literacy and graduation rates for Hispanic students.

Charlie funnels his passion for people, education, and empowerment through board and chair service at nonprofits, like Junior Achievement USA, 3DE Schools, the Girl Scouts of America, and peer-membership groups, like YPO and TIGER 21, where he was twice named “Chair of the Year.” He has written two bestselling books on leadership, A Message from Garcia and Leadership Lessons of the White House Fellows. Charlie’s many academic achievements include a 2019 Fellowship at Harvard’s Advanced Leadership Initiative and his appointment as a lecturer at MIT’s Israel Lab at the Sloan School of Management MBA program.

Charlie sees R360 as the ideal platform for his passion and purpose: finding ways to connect highly talented individuals and their families to the people, resources, and experiences that create tremendous value for themselves and the planet.

Silvia Costa


Born in Rio de Janeiro, educated in Milan and London, Silvia is a filmmaker fluent in Portuguese, Italian, English,Spanish and French.

Silvia developed the concept of the Business Profile, a short business documentary filmed on locations around the world and broadcast on traditionalTV Channels (CNBC Europe, History Channel, BBC America and Star TV in Asia) as well as dedicated streaming platforms (Financial Times TV and MarHedge TV). TheBusiness Profile took Silvia to over 70 countries where she interviewed CEOs,CFOs, politicians and key company members who shared the story, or sometimes just the simple idea, behind successful corporations and family businesses.


Over 15 years’ experience making documentary films allowed Silvia to witness every aspect of filming, from producing and presenting to directing and editing. There are many specialized trades in documentary filmmaking, such as researching, writing, editing and sound designing to name but a few. ForSilvia, as a filmmaker, you must wear all those hats without letting any one of them dominate. Filmmaking is a collaborative process, and for Silvia, creating a compelling documentary requires a team of talented and dedicated specialists to help achieve “art with the truth”.
