Chip Conley

Entrepreneur, Author, Speaker

In 1987, Chip Conley started his own hospitality company, Joie de Vivre (JDV), and, as CEO for two-dozen years, grew it into the second largest boutique hotel company in the United States. At the age of 26 with no industry experience, Chip transformed a seedy 1950s no-tell motel into the world-renowned Phoenix Hotel, a legendary rock n roll destination catering to the likes of David Bowie, Linda Ronstadt and Nirvana. JDV expanded into a collection of over 35 award-winning hotels, restaurants and spas, with more than 3,000 employees each property with its own unique theme that inspires guests to experience an identity refreshment during their stay. Chip and his company's time-tested techniques and transformational leadership practices have been featured in every major news outlet including TIME, USA Today, Fortune and The Wall Street Journal.
