Paul Buck

Chief Operating Officer

Nothing brings Paul Buck more than the joy of creating the right environment for guests to have a truly memorable event. Though Paul is a 35 year veteran of the hospitality industry, he was first captivated by hospitality as a child. Paul began working summers at a local hotel in upstate New York, and turned a summer job into a lifelong pursuit of excellence. Since then he’s worked as a Managing Partner + Director of Operations for Union Square Hospitality Group in New York, as well as working as the Executive Vice President of Operations for the Patina Restaurant Group. He joined Hospitality Collaborative in 2016, and brought to bear his significant experience in management, strategic planning and execution, client relations, financial management, and the building of great teams, allowing the company to pursue its unique vision of virtuous hospitality.
