OFFICER OF membership

Evan Anderson - Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles

Having grown up in La Paz, Bolivia from ages 2-8, Evan was submerged in a very diverse culture. This experience provided Evan the opportunity to see the enormous world, at a very young, which ultimately inspired the passion for travel. Evan had an epiphany at the age of 14 while at a beachside resort in Costa Rica. After meeting and speaking with the resort owner, Evan realized that his ultimate goal in life was to be a hotel & resort owner and that the only way to do this was to learn it form the bottom up. At the age of 18, Evan attended Northern Arizona University for a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel / Restaurant Management. Evan’s first job was a Men’s Locker-room Attendant at Canyon Ranch (Resort), which this first role was NOT glamourous by any means (wet towels everywhere), however it was a start. With passion for service and enthusiasm Evan excelled quickly and within three years of hard work and two different roles, Evan was promoted to his first management position within the spa. After graduating from NAU, Evan decided to keep pushing forward within his career and took the leap of faith to Los Angeles. Almost four years later Evan is not looking back and absolutely loves LA. In 2016 Evan started his new role as Sales Manager (Entertainment & Fashion) at the legendary Ace Hotel Downtown LA.
