Meet Scott Hale of Sybarite Lifestyle Management in Beverly Hills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Scott Hale.

Scott, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was working in New York City at a luxury hotel on Wall Street when 9/11 happened. For two years we served as the centerpiece of downtown redevelopment but business was slow to return, and unfortunately, the hotel ended up closing.

I had been working in luxury hotels for 14 years (with my time divided between Four Seasons and Regent International) when I decided to take my knowledge of hospitality and apply it to residential settings. I knew that Beverly Hills/Los Angeles would be a great location to find clientele who desire their residences to operate with the same exacting service standards as those of a luxury hotel.

I moved to Beverly Hills in 2003 and began building my business. While networking in Los Angeles, I was introduced to the owner of a national domestic staffing agency. I was recruited to be the Managing Director of that business and led its operations for two years. During that time, I worked with high-profile clients to develop staffing plans and recruit/train domestic teams for residences nationwide.

When I returned to building my business, I established a small group of private clients for whom I consult and provide: Estate Management, Event Planning, Concierge Services, Personal Shopping, Travel Planning, and everything they may require to live beautifully.

Has it been a smooth road?
Connecting with high-net-worth individuals and establishing them as clients did have its challenges. I encountered strong enthusiasm for my luxury hospitality experience but was faced with the usual barriers to entry… specifically, I did not have previous experience within a domestic setting.

Through managing the domestic staffing agency I was exposed to many unique domestic environments nationwide and collaborated with many leaders of corporate America.

Additionally, I experienced the full breadth of luxury lifestyle through staffing positions as varied as Estate Managers, Personal Assistants, Nannies, Chefs, Chauffeurs, Butlers, Executive Housekeepers, Laundresses, Family Office Staff, Flight Attendants, and Sea Captains.

I had the opportunity to lead projects located in: New York, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Palm Beach, Aspen, Scottsdale, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Kona.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Sybarite Lifestyle Management provides comprehensive domestic/residential services. We create bespoke solutions for clients and provide all of the infrastructure, documentation, support, and training required for a domestic team to operate in a consistent and excellent manner.

Our methods bring the standards of a luxury hotel to the residences of our clients. We work for just a few select private clients. The nature of our work is incredibly intimate and has measurable and long-lasting results. Every situation is different, and no two clients are alike.

I love that every endeavor is unique and finding the perfect result each and every time results in a tremendous sense of accomplishment. I also enjoy anticipating what a client needs before he/she is even aware of a need. Smoothing the way for our clients to live a thoughtful and extraordinary lifestyle is the cornerstone of our success.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I moved across the country to establish my business based on my belief that the communities of Beverly Hills, Bel Air, and Los Angeles would prove to have many high-net-worth individuals who required the services and assistance that my company is uniquely qualified to provide. My instincts were right, and I have enjoyed more than a decade of great opportunities.

Los Angeles is a cosmopolitan destination in which many local and international individuals choose to maintain residences given the profile and importance that our city serves on the world stage. It is an exceptional market in which to establish a luxury service business.
