The Founders

Justin McAleenan  LinkedIn Logo48

An “ideas guy” with a love for creative problem solving, Justin recognized the need for a modern solution to recruiting hourly employees while working in hospitality and completing his degree. His first start-up, EightSix, was born a few months later. In his off-time, Justin can be found among friends, playing hockey, softball, golf, or tennis, and laughing at his own jokes.

Why “EightSix?”

Our name is in reference to the hospitality-specific term “Eighty-Six,” which is typically used by staff when a restaurant runs out of a menu item (eg: “86 burgers!”). Eventually, it evolved into EightSix Network, which just felt right.
