Charles Saatchi (born 9 June 1943) (Arabic: تشارلز ساعاتجي‎) is the co-founder with his brother Maurice of the global advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi, leading the world's largest advertising agency until they were forced out in 1995. In the same year the Saatchi brothers formed a new agency called M&C Saatchi.

Many large clients followed, and their new agency quickly overtook their former agency in Britain's top ten. Charles is also known worldwide as an art collector and owner of the Saatchi Gallery, and in particular for his sponsorship of the Young British Artists (YBAs), including Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin.

Charles Saatchi was born into a wealthy Iraqi Jewish family in Baghdad, Iraq. In 1947, the family fled persecution and moved to Finchley, London. There Saatchi attended Christ's College, a secondary school in North London. During this time he developed an obsession with U.S. pop culture, including the music of Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry. He also manifested an enthusiasm for collections, from cigarette cards and jukeboxes to Superman comics and nudist magazines. He has described as "life changing" the experience of viewing a Jackson Pollock painting at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He then progressed to study at the London College of Communication.
