Our Team

We think our team is what makes Hideaway Co. special. This is a group of friends who have been working together for years at the East Liberty outpost of a world-renowned boutique hotel brand. We're ready to start a new adventure with you.

Anna Baird

Founder

Anna’s love for entertaining guests started back in high school when she would host dinner parties, yes dinner parties. Later, as a travel coordinator for film and television, she developed a knowledge of luxe hotels up and down the east coast, and what made one stand out from another: service. Anna then found herself heading up the sales team at Ace Hotel Pittsburgh, working with some of the best in the industry. She has gathered them all once again at Hideaway Co.

Brian Pekarcik

Executive Chef

Raised in Pittsburgh, Brian moved to California after college, eventually taking the helm at award-winning institutions Mille Fleurs, Bertrand at Mister A’s, Gary Danko, and Chef Bradley Ogden’s Arterra. After returning to Pittsburgh, Brian teamed with Rick Stern in 2009 to form S+P Restaurant Group. The group offers some of Pittsburgh’s top dining destinations including Spoon, BRGR and Willow. He has been honored with Pittsburgh Magazine’s Chef of the Year in 2012 and 2014, as well as the publication’s Rising Star Chef in 2011.

Thommy Conroy

DESIGN & INGENUITY

Known for his work in both the non-profit and private sectors around the Pennsylvania and New York regions, Mr. Conroy has been working in event architecture, floristry, and art curation since 2002. Hailing from a fine art and theater background, Mr. Conroy creates events that focus on guest experience and unforgettable moments, with a floristry practice based in studies in classical floral composition and ikebana technique.
