About Charlie


Charlie Fiveash and his wife Lang have lived in Atlanta for 28 years and raised their three children here. As a successful businessman with decades of experience in commercial real estate, Charlie is running for the State Senate because he believes he has the experience and leadership needed to bring prosperity and an enhanced quality of life for Northside families. With a desire to serve his neighbors, Charlie is the kind of outsider we need in the General Assembly.

After graduating from the University of Georgia, Charlie began his career in the commercial real estate industry. With over 30 years of successful development throughout Georgia, he is now a partner with Lavista Associates. Charlie is the incoming president of the National Association of Industrial and Office Parks, while having also served on the Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors. He was also a founding member of the Southlake-75 Community Improvement District (CID) to better facilitate public-private partnerships throughout the region.
 
However, it is not only professional success that drives Charlie’s desire to improve his community. He wants our children to come back to Atlanta after college and raise their own families, just as he and Lang have. For over 20 years, Charlie has been actively involved as an NYO Youth Football and Buckhead Baseball coach, Sunday school teacher at Northside Methodist Church and Vestry member at Church of the Apostles, and vice president of the local homeowners’ association, where he helped find solutions to many of the “pothole” issues we face every day. He currently serves on the board for the Georgia College and State University School of Business.
 
Charlie will fight for lower taxes and less regulation because, as a conservative businessman, he knows that’s how we create high-paying jobs. He’s seen the need for excellent schools that prepare our children to attend Georgia’s flagship universities and compete in a global marketplace because he’s raised his children here. Charlie will work to address our significant congestion issues because he knows better mobility within the region is critical for economic development and an improved quality of life for our neighbors.
 
Charlie Fiveash is a lifelong conservative with a clear record of getting results in business and of serving his community. He’s the political outsider we need in the Georgia Senate to get real results. No stranger to the critical issues and opportunities facing our communities, Charlie Fiveash is the right candidate to be our senator right now.
