Chris Buckley is a seasoned Queenstown-based hospitality operator whose unwavering sense of ambition has earned him the reputation as a driven leader in the hospitality space. Throughout the course of nearly two decades, he has cultivated extensive expertise in his field.

Born in Christchurch, Chris resided right above a country tavern with his parents who operated bars themselves. Naturally, that initial spark turned into a passion and ultimately, a vocation. After holding numerous management roles at multiple taverns, he proudly serves as the General Manager of Pub on Wharf. Most recently, he launched and renovated a new venture Muskets & Moonshine based in Queenstown.

Infinitely dedicated to streamlining the hospitality business for other professionals in the industry, Chris is proud to be on the national board for Hospitality New Zealand, where he proudly served as the President of their Central Branch from 2013 to 2016.

During his spare time, you can find Chris Buckley either playing polo or mountain biking. He is also an avid equestrian and internationally qualified technical delegate for eventing, working in both Australia and New Zealand.
