Owner & President
Nion McEvoy has a knack for bringing passionate people and projects together. McEvoy Ranch’s President since 2014, Nion worked previously in the business affairs departments of the William Morris Agency in Beverly Hills and Wescom Productions. A graduate of the University of California at Santa Cruz and the University of California’s Hastings College of the Law, Nion is also Chairman and CEO of Chronicle Books. He currently serves as Commissioner for the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and on the boards of the SF Film Society, the UCSF Foundation, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
In between all the work, Nion is also a poet and art collector. His love of music is often intertwined with his responsibilities at McEvoy Ranch and Chronicle Books. Nion is a former meditation teacher, a drummer in two bands, and he has three grown children. You might say he’s anything but typical and that’s perfect.
