To Tony, Homecoming is always being able to see my kids off to school, attend all of their events, and the weather is always 75 degrees with a slight breeze (and no mosquitoes).
Tony arrived at DT Spade by way of smiling faces and cups of coffee. Tony spent 10 years in corporate America building and growing hospitality teams. This allowed him to live in some amazing places like Charlotte, NC, Portland, OR, San Diego, CA, and Atlanta, GA. He has spent the bulk of his time in Atlanta building and growing hospitality, restaurant, and real estate projects that help fill a missing void with the goal of bringing people together and building community.
Tony and his wife founded Octane Coffee Company, and as CEO, Tony helped facilitate its sale which consisted of 6 retail units and 2 production facilities in Atlanta, GA and Birmingham, AL. Tony and his wife also co-founded Elevator Factory, a co-working facility in the Grant Park neighborhood of Atlanta as well as Pancake Social, a breakfast/brunch concept at Ponce City Market.
Tony looks forward to sharing his passion for building community and expertise in hospitality operations with others looking to start or grow their concept/business.
At DTSpade, Tony’s great work is helping others find their perfect place through research, analytics, and encouragement.
When he comes down from his great work with us, he loves to spend time with his family, laugh with friends, and all things travel and food with his wife, Diane.
In case that’s not enough information, Tony has accomplished the following:
- Bachelor of Science in Business from West Virginia University
- Has served on several boards including The Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center and Wholesome Wave Georgia
