Megan Willis, Operations Manager

Megan was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. With over 15 years of experience in hospitality, Megan grew a love for people, food, and leading others. This love brought her to the restaurant industry in Portland. She worked her way up into management roles, managing multiple James Beard Nominated restaurants. She is excited to bring this expertise into her role at Ironlight as the Venue Operations Manager, while getting to learn about the big world of the event business.

Outside of working for Ironlight, Megan loves to kayak, camp, and enjoy everything the PNW has to offer.


Michael Hammack, Sales Manager

Michael is a born and raised Portlander with over 20 years of experience in the hospitality and events industry. Not only locally but he cut his teeth in New York and Washington D.C. While living there, he spent the majority of his time assisting in producing fashion shows during New York Fashion Week and running a 15,000 square-foot former warehouse turned event venue.

After returning home to the PNW he very quickly found a home being part of the opening team of Plaza del Toro in the SE industrial area. After several years he transitioned to ChefStable Catering and rode through the pandemic with them until they closed in the fall of 2022. At that point, Michael took a nice long break to assess what would be next. He is beyond excited to be in this new role of Sales Manager with the entire team at Ironlight.
