About Us

We delight in the commitment to our people and our guests; it’s a reflection of who we are.

McKibbon shares one common goal: to build a team with the capabilities to create the kind of hospitality experience that no other organization can. Through this shared vision, our executive team has led one of the fastest-growing hospitality advancements in hotel development, management and renovations. We’ve done this by embracing constant evolution, braving forward-thinking concepts and retaining the best talent in the business. In this fast-paced industry, it's rare to find a group of people who collaborate and share the same attitude towards business and development; but then again, it's rare to find a culture like McKibbon's.
