Chuck who has now been a resident of Maui for almost 1 year, but is originally from New York. It was in 1978, that Chuck first set foot on Maui and he knew instantly that this would be the place he ultimately wanted to live. After a long career as an investment banker, both in California and on Wall Street, Chuck finally realized his dream would come true when he purchased the Maui Sunseeker in 2008. While Chuck’s background is not hotel management, his previous career had him traveling so much that he knows what it takes to have the perfect guest experience. Steering the hotel through the worst economic period since the Great Depression has also been a great on-the-job training for him.
When asked what his hidden talent was, Chuck said with much excitement “I can wiggle my ears.” It’s one of those hidden talents you’ll have to ask him to demonstrate upon your visit.
His favorite spot in Maui is the rooftop deck at the Sunseeker for sunset, especially while visiting with guests. If you asked him where his favorite place to eat on Maui is, he would quickly with out haste tell you Mama’s Fish House.
And his favorite activity is taking a long early morning walk on the beach (no we promise this isn’t the start of a personal ad). In the evening he celebrates with a Skyy Martini, shaken and served straight up with olives, very cold and very dry.
Chuck’s favorite recipe that he’d like to share is for Yam Souffle!
