Chateau Luxe Event Venue

Location: Phoenix

Founded: 2014

Industry: Events

Ben Ostro is the CEO of Chateau Luxe Event Venue, a special event and conference center in Phoenix.

“Set amongst spectacular Sonoran Desert views, Chateau Luxe is Arizona’s most luxurious and nationally recognized event destination boasting spacious indoor and outdoor spaces for events of all sizes,” the company said. “Stunning crystal chandeliers, lush fabrics and delectable cuisine crafted by our in-house culinary team ensure an unforgettable experience for your next function, no matter how large or small.”

This is Ostro’s second time on the Phoenix Titan 100 list. Since his first appearance last year, his biggest accomplishment was successfully hosting the Taste of the NFL event at Chateau Luxe, which brought celebrity chefs together to make dishes for 2,500 guests. The event benefited GenYouth, which is on a mission to end childhood hunger.

Ostro and his team had to get creative with how to safely and successfully create 40-plus satellite kitchens for the chefs to prepare their meals in front of guests. “The hard work and dedication of my team was so apparent for this event, and I was incredibly proud of Chateau Luxe for being able to architect and execute an event of this caliber,” Ostro said. “The Taste of the NFL was by far the largest event we’ve ever had at our venue, and it was incredible to watch my team innovate with our client in ways that many thought was impossible, and our 2,500 guests who attended had a lovely time while supporting the children in our country who need help the most.”

Ostro’s goals for the coming year include focusing on employees, and he cited the company’s limited turnover among both full- and part-time staff as evidence that they are doing things right. “We look at our workforce as a consumer, and our goal is to implement many of the same ideas in our style of recruiting and management,” Ostro said.

Ostro also dedicates time to help mentor and develop the next generation of employees in the industry.

“The importance of educating young people and allowing them the opportunity to experience different types of industries is something I believe in,” Ostro said. “They have a chance to gain real world experience and tools that will be valuable to them no matter what path they choose to pursue in their careers and lives. We have received a lot of excellent positive feedback from our participants about their internships and they have also taught us many things about what is important to the younger generation, and the things they’re focused on. It is exciting for us to be able to work with these kids and to have an impact on the careers they pursue.”
