Chris Burch loves entrepreneurs who can use creative design and imagination in their products, and the companies that he supports at his Burch Creative Capital incubator are known as disruptive businesses with ingenuity behind them. But he also is owner of one of the top-reviewed vacation places in Indonesia, a resort known as Nihiwatu in a remote Sumba island. This resort is a place that looks like a place you may have only thought possible in fantasy worlds with the clear blue ocean water, exquisite beach villas, and Chris Burch’s home with an overlooking swimming pool facing the ocean (architecturaldigest.com). He bought the place in 2013 and said the reason he did so is because he wanted an investment that he could keep in his family for generations.
Burch didn’t become a billionaire hotel owner because he grew up on Wall Street. In fact he came from a fairly modest middle class family and attended a regular college in Ithaca, NY. It was while he was there though that a small-time gig he started selling sweaters turned into a big business. Customers loved his sweaters and as business started booming, Burch decided to take it big and opened up a factory along with a department store, and that was the start of Eagle Eye Apparel (bjtonline.com). The company grew into a 50-store company and was owned by Burch for about 20 years. Burch made quite the profit from Eagle Eye Apparel, and once he sold it he moved on to his next business ventures. Those included buying stakes in Guggenheim Partners and later Tory Burch fashion. In 2008, Burch Creative Capital began funding small companies and also buying other properties
Prior to opening up Nihiwatu Resort, Chris Burch had also helped fund Alan Faena’s Hotel + Universe in 2004 and then started turning homes into higher resale value across the US. Burch also became famous for helping television talk show host Ellen DeGeneres bring her first-class lifestyle business ED online in 2014. Check inc.com. He’s also gone beyond just business success to a few gigs in the entertainment industry including producing the 1992 film “Watch It.” Burch also has supported charities like an orthopedic research center and the Tilton boarding school.
