Ezra Callahan is the co-founder and Chief Investment Officer of ARRIVE Hotels & Restaurants, a boutique hotel development and management company based in Los Angeles. Debuting with ARRIVE Palm Springs in 2016, AHR has expanded its reach in 2019 with the opening of ARRIVE East Austin and ARRIVE Wilmington this summer and the imminent openings of ARRIVE Memphis and ARRIVE Phoenix this fall. Each ARRIVE property is built to be a local neighborhood landmark centered on public spaces that speak to and celebrate the surrounding community. Fueled by a love for the places we build, we strive to share what makes our neighborhoods special with locals and visitors alike, with a focus on low-key luxury and thoughtful design that emphasizes getting all the little things right.
Prior to helping launch ARRIVE, Callahan started his career in the tech world, where he served as the sixth employee and first product manager at Facebook and later launched the company's Internal Communications division focused on scaling and fostering Facebook's unique workplace culture. In 2011, he co-founded Artist & Recreation, a Los Angeles-based real estate and hospitality group, which redeveloped the Regent Theater in Downtown Los Angeles into a 1,000-capacity live music venue and played a role in numerous restaurant and real estate projects in Downtown LA's Arts District. He is a graduate of Stanford University and currently lives in Pasadena with his wife Marisa and four young children.
