An Insider View on Saving the Hospitality Industry
Online Program

As the CEO of Fire & Vine Hospitality and the Chair of the Washington Hospitality Association, Chad Mackay has been on the front lines of not only working to save his family business but also to save an industry.  He’ll share personal stories and key decisions that Fire & Vine made, as well as some of the critical factors to get Washington's restaurant and hospitality industries back on their feet.

Since joining El Gaucho and his father and founder, Paul Mackay, in 2003, the two worked together to build a special place for people to celebrate their lives. Over the years, Chad developed strategic direction to promote continual growth, and in July 2017 announced the evolution to Fire & Vine Hospitality. The operating company manages the El Gaucho family of restaurants and the Inn at El Gaucho, an operating partnership with Chef Jason Wilson’s restaurants. As a dedicated member of the Seattle community, Chad is active in the Washington State Hospitality Association and Visit Seattle. Previously, he served on the Washington State Tourism Advisory Committee, the Washington State Tourism Commission, and the Seattle Sports Commission.
