Charles Marentette

Chief financial officer, Gravie

Description

Scaling up responsibly has been Charles Marentette’s mission since 2019, when he joined Gravie, the fast-growing Minneapolis-based health benefits solutions company. Gravie's first CFO, Marentette brings more than 20 years of experience with Walser Automotive Group, Ceridian, and Best Buy. He helped Gravie complete its largest funding rounds to date: a $28 million Series D round in 2021, followed by a $90 million Series E in 2022. Now he’s focused on smartly managing that 10X growth. Gravie plans to double its 150-employee base over the next year, and Marentette led negotiations to move to a new 27,000-square-foot office space in Northeast Minneapolis.
