The CBI Group

About CBI Group

The President and CEO, Mr. Charles T. Brandon III, has been involved in the music and audio arena for more than 30 years. A multi-instrument musician, writer and producer, Chuck, as he prefers to be called, spent much of his early musical career as a studio musician in Europe and the US. He has worked with many gospel and secular performers, to include George Benson, Shirley Caesar, Earl Bynum, The Jackson Singers, Dorothy Norwood, Joshua, Paul Anka, and others.

 He is a 1992 graduate of the Full Sail Recording Engineer Program in Miami, Florida, and he holds Masters Degrees from Northwestern University, Chicago (MBA), George Washington University, Virginia (Masters in Program Management), and The American Intercontinental University for International Studies in Atlanta, GA  (Masters in Information Technology). He is a strong believer in the "Teach First" principle: understanding that knowing the business of music or the technical foundations of audio will better equip the artist or technician to handle the "performance" end of their ministry.
