Charlie MacGregor

CEO and founder

The Social Hub

Charlie MacGregor founded The Social Hub in his early-20s, guiding the company to explore new territories and leading the way in the evolution of community-based hospitality — a concept he conceived.

A born entrepreneur, Charlie founded The Social Hub in 2003 and still leads the team today. His love of community and belief that ‘people deserve better’ began it all, and continues to be key to The Social Hub’s winning hybrid hospitality concept. With an instinctive drive, he has grown The Social Hub to more than a dozen European locations and raised more than €3 billion from investors since inception. Today, Charlie is a leading voice on the future of hospitality for industry publications and events around the world. His focus? To build one team, one community and one global brand. Beyond The Social Hub, Charlie focuses on improving refugee camps through the humanitarian crisis NGO he co-founded in 2015, Movement on the Ground. With several active projects in Greece and Holland as well as providing emergency help and shelter, its mission is to transform camps into campuses, offering refugees better opportunities and a better life.
