Brett Charville, Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) president, has announced that he will be leaving the company but will remain part of the PCGS team while a successor is selected.
“I’ve enjoyed and valued my time as president, and I’m ready for the next challenge,” said Charville, who has served in the capacity since late 2018. “This role has been the experience of a lifetime. I am proud of the things we have accomplished, and I look forward to working with the PCGS team to ensure a smooth transition to new leadership.”
“During his presidency, Charville pursued groundbreaking projects for PCGS and was an agent for positive changes in the industry,” said Joe Orlando, CEO of Collectors Universe, of which PCGS is a division. “His many achievements at the helm include record annual performance, significant enhancement of PCGS’ international business and the introduction of Near-Field Communication (NFC) anti-counterfeiting technology in all holders.”
Charville does not have a set date for his official departure from his role. That will depend on the process for selecting a new PCGS president and the subsequent transition period.
“I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank Brett for everything he did here at PCGS,” said Orlando.
“Brett joined our team at a somewhat tumultuous time and battled through adversity with us during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic a little more than a year later. If you have been at a company as long as I have, losing good people from time to time comes with the territory," said Orlando. "It’s never easy, but it’s a part of managing an ever-evolving business, regardless of the industry."
