Meet The Team

Our collective backgrounds in corporate and incentive programming, tour development and special event design means our work is backed with years of experience. Combine this with a true love for our city and you’re guaranteed success!


David Davenport

Director of Operations

David may be a fairly new addition to Hosts Chicago, but certainly is no newcomer to the Hospitality Industry.  After nearly 16 years of globetrotting with an incentive travel company where he wore many hats, including those of Air Planner, Travel Director, and Manger of Air Purchasing and Planning, he is excited to put all the experience he has gained, both professionally and personally, to use in a new and refreshing way.

David’s style, attention to detail and professionalism, together with his love of Chicago make him a natural Director of Operations for Hosts Chicago.  His dedication to success is what sees him through when the going gets tough, and his well-timed wit and humor are certainly contributing factors as well.  He definitely delivers when it comes to providing that individualized touch that his clients simply adore.

As a self-taught cook, David loves to try new creations both in his own kitchen and in those of the city’s newest and most on-trend restaurants (as well as those of a few of his long-time favorites).  Other loves include interior décor, fashion and, of course, his fiancé Joshua and dog Ranger.
