Gina Ciaccio

Business Development & Convening Coordinator

Gina wears her mantra on her sleeve “welcome everyone into Cleveland Avenue as if you were welcoming them into your home.”  

Gina’s first hospitality job was at age 13 in her parents’ restaurant, which fueled her enthusiasm for cooking and entertaining. After 20 years of working in law firms she decided to take a leap of faith and follow her passion for connecting people. She served as Director of Membership and Club Events at one of Chicago’s most prestigious private clubs where she and her team planned, marketed and executed 80 to 120 events each year. 

When not at Cleveland Avenue Gina enjoys cooking with her husband, relaxing pedicures, a really good bowl of linguine and clams and binge-watching British crime dramas on Netflix. Gina is a firm believer that a good laugh can fix almost anything.
