San Diego Meetings & Incentives

Meet Darrell

I’ve had the pleasure of living in San Diego for most of my life, having lived and worked in London and Europe before. I remember how enchanted I was on my first visit to this truly beautiful city and am still amazed on a daily basis with such sights as Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo and the Pacific Ocean at La Jolla.

I love cruising the Gaslamp in the heart of downtown for the latest restaurant, watching the surfers on Mission Beach, or driving up through the mountains to Julian, our turn-of-the century and very quaint gold rush town. San Diego is the quintessential Southern California destination!

Meet Jeff

Jeff began his hospitality career in 1985, working part time while a student at Florida State University. His career has taken him to every corner of the hospitality industry – he has worked in luxury boutique hotels and 1,000 plus room “supertankers.” He has managed small restaurants and developed B&B’s. Jeff moved to New Orleans in 1992, for what he laughingly describes as “a two-year assignment” while he was with Sheraton Hotels. Falling hard in love with this unique, dynamic, “laissez le bon temps rouler” city, he has made it his home ever since. Since 1997 his focus has been on Destination Management, for which he has a unique passion. He has worked with groups around the country as well as internationally. Since purchasing the PRA New Orleans franchise in 2002, he has made the New Orleans destination experience his focus.

His enthusiasm for providing clients with a New Orleans experience, combined with knowledge of every corner, alley, venue and restaurant in the city, leads his team to an unmatched level of client satisfaction. He is known for making the impossible happen at a moment’s notice, and works diligently (often over a cocktail or a meal, as is tradition in New Orleans) to keep his relationships and network first rate.

Jeff spends much of his free time in the mountains of Colorado, where he enjoys hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, golf and of course skiing.
