Bracher brings over 25 years of finance experience in the consumer, retail and hospitality sectors. Since 2012, he has been the EVP and CFO for Grocery Outlet Holding Corp., a $4 billion publicly traded discount grocery store chain, where he oversaw finance, accounting, investor relations, internal audit, and risk management activities. Before that, Bracher was CFO at Bare Escentuals, Inc., a high-growth cosmetics and skincare company, publicly traded before being sold for $1.7 billion.

“Susan and I have known Charles since the late 1990s,” stated Nanula. “He brings a career’s worth of experience to us from building consumer businesses, working with private equity investors and completing an IPO. He knows the challenges facing larger companies as they continue to grow, from IT and HR to purchasing and planning. Now, after 25 years, we’ve truly come full circle as we welcome Charles to the Concert Golf leadership team.”

“I am thrilled to be joining Concert Golf Partners to help grow the business and support our mission of delivering great experiences to our private club members,” said Bracher. “I look forward to working with Peter, Susan and the entire Concert Golf team as we build upon our solid foundation and pursue the significant growth opportunity ahead of us.”
