Charles D. King casts the overall vision, mission and strategic goals as Founder & CEO of MACRO, a multi-platform media company representing the voice and perspectives of people of color. The company’s business verticals include MACRO Film Studios and MACRO Television Studios—that finance, develop and produce theatrical and streaming features and premium television, and Brand MACRO, an in-house branding and creative agency. MACRO also has a majority interest in the company’s joint venture co-founded by King—M88, a talent management firm; and an affiliated venture capital firm, MaC Venture Capital, where King is general partner. Formerly a partner/senior agent at William Morris Endeavor, King was the first Black partner in the company’s 100+ year history and the first Black partner at any major talent agency. King made history again in 2021, when the Best Picture Oscar nomination for Judas And The Black Messiah made King, Ryan Coogler and Shaka King, the first all-Black team of nominated producers for an Academy Award. The company’s film projects have garnered fifteen Oscar nominations and three wins. Its television projects have received nominations for a Peabody Award, two Primetime Emmys and six Children’s and Family Emmy Awards. King is a dedicated philanthropist, member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and The Television Academy; and sits on the boards for The Sundance Institute, College Track and The American Cinematheque. The Vanderbilt University and Howard University School of Law graduate resides in LA with his wife Stacey Walker King and their sons.
