Charles’ career spans several decades and continents, with his most recent post being Corporate Affairs, Business Development and Legal Director for E-Lites, one of UK’s first vaping brands, which was at the forefront of the UK vaping industry’s explosive early growth 2012-2014. Previously, he held senior management positions with some of the UK’s largest public companies (Imperial Tobacco, Beazer Homes, and Hanson), working across different functional areas – legal, company secretarial, business development, and corporate affairs – and in different markets around the world.

“The market for vaping products, identified in 2012 by Goldman Sachs as one of the world’s most disruptive technologies, has been one of the most dynamic and fastest growing in the last five years,” said Hamshaw-Thomas. “As the industry now moves to the next stage of its development, there are some considerable opportunities ahead and I’m delighted to be joining Nicopure, a company with a clear commitment to the future and becoming established as one of the world’s leading suppliers of vaping products. “
