A native Angeleno and adopted New Yorker, Camilla Marcus is committed not only to bridging her two favorite cities, but also giving back to the community. With the launch of west~bourne, an accidentally vegetarian and decidedly mindful concept in SoHo, Camilla cultivates her passions for design and dishes along with the deals and dirt it’s all built upon to make an impact. An artist and cook at heart with a background in business development, law, and investing, Camilla has helped bring to life some of New York’s beloved neighborhood restaurants, including dell’anima, Riverpark, and the reopened Union Square Café. Formerly the Director of Business Development for Union Square Hospitality Group, Camilla has also worked in real estate investing for Colony Capital and CIM Group. With west~bourne, she is now both the investor and the entrepreneur, committed to rethinking what it means to be a good neighbor through the lens of hospitality.
Camilla is also the co-founder of TechTable, a hospitality technology thought leadership platform, and a partner of Pound for Pound Consulting, a boutique strategic and creative agency for hospitality-related initiatives. She received a JD/MBA from New York University, an AA from the International Culinary Center, and a BS from The Wharton School. She is also a mentor in residence for TechStars New York and a board member for Wellness in the Schools in New York City.
