As Director of Member and Business Development, Mike Macleod is the bridge builder of the BCHA, who goes above and beyond to connect members with resources, tools, and partner businesses that will support their unique needs. A seasoned hotelier with deep roots in hospitality, Mike possesses exceptional insight into the needs of members, having worked in hospitality in one form or another since taking a summer job at Capilano Suspension Bridge when he was 17.
After studying business and marketing communications at Capilano University and BCIT, he enjoyed an 18 year hotel career, breaking in with Westin and Starwood Hotels & Resorts in 2002. Mike’s time at Starwood took him from Vancouver to Southern California over a 10 year period. From there, independent hotels in California and Colorado became his focus before eventually returning to BC in 2018. Mike has been leading teams in Sales and Marketing since 2006, most recently at the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel and Conference Centre.
Outside of work, Mike is a proud father, avid golfer, dog lover, and is happy to once again be residing in North Vancouver, working with the BCHA team and its members.
