Charles E. & Renate W. Wiggin

After graduating from Harvard College, Charles Wiggin set himself up for business success with an MBA from Harvard Business School and a JD from Harvard Law School. He began his business career in Boston working as a project manager. In 1978, just five years later, he was given the opportunity to become Southwest Regional Manager in Oklahoma City.

Chuck was captivated by the city and its history. He founded Wiggin Properties in 1981 and never looked back. Over the years, the company has helped develop and manage numerous commercial properties, always keeping in mind the integrity and history of the city.

Chuck and wife Renate are integral members of Oklahoma City civic life, volunteering their time and service to numerous professional and nonprofit organizations. Renate has been a longtime member of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation’s Margaret Annis Boys Trust and Parks & Public Space Initiative Committee, helping provide oversight on grant requests for public beautification projects.

Chuck's passion for history spurred him to establish a fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation for the creation of The '89er Trail. The series of historical markers can be found throughout downtown Oklahoma City, and share the story of Oklahoma City's birth.
