Gillian Zettler

Gillian Zettler has spent an entire career turning things around; whether that mean catering to a miffed client rock star, mollifying a cranky partner or bringing an annual event out of debt.
She credits her career successes – involving work as a record company A&R staffer, an events director at a children’s museum, and chief of an Upstate SC food festival – to lessons learned from her dad. “He taught us a lot about leadership and customer service,” she says, recalling family dinners punctuated by calls with his customers and colleagues. “He approached every situation with a genuine desire to help people and make things right.“
That desire to help, and to authentically make people happy, defines her today.

As Executive Director of Charleston Wine + Food Zettler manages a team of dedicated professionals, culinarians, volunteers and others who spend months planning a citywide takeover. Chock full of more than 120 events, thousands of individual contributors, tons (literally) of food, gallons of adult beverages, scores of sharp knives and open flames, it would be daunting for most people. For Zettler, it’s exhilarating.

Her philosophy is to recruit and retain a team of passionate problem solvers, who share the desire to make customers happy. She looks for soft skills, and trains for the technical. Under her management, the festival has been pulled out of the red, and has steadily increased the economic impact by 20-40% every year, this past year was record breaking at $19.93 million over the course of the 5-day festival.

But Zettler’s not done growing yet. A dedicated yoga + spin instructor, she’s determined to complete the NYC + Boston Marathons, and to continue traveling internationally with her young family, exposing them to the possibilities the world holds for all who wish to explore it. As for Charleston Wine + Food, her efforts include navigating the organization successfully through a pandemic, solidifying the longevity of the organization’s future, and committing real work to creating an organization that is inclusive and equitable for all.
