Josh McCallen got his start in the hospitality industry at age 14 washing dishes. Now, he is a nationally recognized hospitality executive, conference speaker, innovator, builder & investor for the development of exceptional resort properties and growing world-class operational teams. Over the course of 20+ years, Mr. McCallen has led over $100,000,000 in luxury residential and hospitality construction, served as president of a 400+ person hotel development and management company, and built numerous businesses & brands. Melanie, Josh’s wife and business partner in both Accountable Equity and Vivamee Hospitality, manages designers and architects and serves investors on hospitality projects. Being parents of 10 means genuine hospitality comes naturally to the McCallens, and as Melanie says, “Your passion comes through when it’s authentic”. Hear the story of how they invented the concept of “investor hospitality”, and how they learned to think outside the box as investors, mixing business and pleasure to turn amenities like wineries and golf courses into wealth-building opportunities.
