Charles Peter Henry Morgan (born 29 July 1951)[1] is the former managing director of the Morgan Motor Company, a UK car manufacturer.

The grandson of the founder of the company, H.F.S. Morgan, and the son of the company's former chairman Peter Morgan, Charles Morgan joined the family firm full-time in 1985. Previously he had worked for 10 years as a news cameraman for ITN and then briefly in the publishing industry.[2] After the Morgan Motor Company was featured on the BBC's Troubleshooter in 1991, he obtained an MBA.[3] In 2013, he was removed as Morgan's managing director and continued as strategy director until October 2013, when he was voted off the company's board. He remains a minority shareholder.[4][5]

He and the company and other family shareholders promptly sued each other.

In 2019, he and the family sold their entire interest in the company to InvestIndustriel.
