Charlotte Cederwall


The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

— Coco Chanel

The Conscious Consumer

Charlotte is known for her thoughtful and independent spirit. She has a strong feel for fashion (ideally ethically and sustainably sourced), style and curation and is your go-to if you need help tracking down that vintage rare designer find. As a child, Charlotte was passionate about drama and theatre. Charlotte believes a good team is one where everyone has a role to play and knows why their role is important – just like in a theatre production. After all, a show just wouldn’t be the same without everyone’s talents and skill sets coming together. On that note, Charlotte’s work ethic and resilience is admirable. No matter how challenging a task may seem, she always works to find a way forward. 

As someone who loves motivating others, Charlotte is a Partner and EMEA lead for our Consumer & Retail practice at Acertitude. She specialises in working with best-in-class management teams and world-renowned private equity investors across Europe and North America, building and assessing board level management teams and facilitating people related diligence on upcoming deals. Alongside her hands-on role with the Consumer & Retail practice, Charlotte also has an active role in supporting and coordinating our firmwide private equity relationships. 

Charlotte brings over 15 years of executive search experience to her role as a Partner at Acertitude, with the past 8 years spent at Skillcapital, the leading global executive search and advisory firm dedicated to private equity. Charlotte was a Partner and global lead of the Consumer & Retail practice, alongside co-leading the firms executive search focus and training. She has personally led numerous high-profile assignments and searches internationally and across all Consumer & Retail related sub-sectors including e-commerce. Charlotte attended the University of Nottingham.

Charlotte lives in London with her Swedish husband, daughter, and stepchildren. In her spare time, you may find Charlotte at her family home in Sweden, relaxing on the beach or enjoying the mountains on the ski slopes.
