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, Chip transformed a seedy 1950′s “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.

As the preeminent thought leader at the intersection of psychology and business, and a successful practitioner of emotional intelligence at work, Chip shared his unique prescription for success in several books, including his latest, Emotional Equations: Simple Truths for Creating Happiness + Success.

After 24 years as Chief Executive Officer of the company he founded, Chip is now the “Chief Emotions Officer.”

He is a committed philanthropist

Chip received his BA and MBA from Stanford University, and was awarded with an Honorary Doctorate in Psychology from Saybrook Graduate School & Research Center, where he is the school’s 2012 Scholar-Practitioner in residence.
