Destination Services Colorado Hires Christina Stevens to Lead Lake Tahoe Office
April 04, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsLake Tahoe, NV … Destination Services Corporation (DSC), a destination management firm that masterminds special event, team building, and local tour experiences for corporate and incentive travelers, welcomes Christina Stevens as a Senior Account Manager. Stevens will focus her efforts on developing memorable programs for clients who seek unique team functions and truly local adventures in the Lake Tahoe area.
Stevens brings more than nine years of experience in hospitality, group sales, and event management. She comes to DSC from the Resort at Squaw Creek where she worked as a National Sales Manager, selling the resort and its amenities to corporate groups. Previously, she spent four years as Group Sales Manager at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe and also offered in-house destination management services for groups. She began her career creating fundraising events for non-profits at a consulting firm in Boston, MA.
"I was working at the Hyatt Regency when DSC was selected as a preferred partner," says Stevens, "I was immediately impressed with the creativity they brought to bear in designing one-of-a-kind experiences for our groups. Now I have the opportunity to raise the bar even higher by continuing to expand our local network of businesses, venues and partnerships to ensure that DSC is developing new, cutting edge Lake Tahoe experiences for our corporate clients."
"Meeting planners count on DSC to bring an insider's knowledge to our programs and events," says Kathy Fort Carty, founder and president, "that's why Christina is a perfect match and we're excited to have her join our team. She not only understands the convention and incentive travel world, she knows how to give meeting planners and their attendees the "local Lake Tahoe" experience whether they have a group of 35 or 500."
Stevens is an avid traveler herself, having lived and worked on both ends of the United States and backpacked throughout Asia. She has skied, climbed and hiked almost every mile of Lake Tahoe and brings the same "go-do-experience" approach to client programs. A recent event for 50 meeting planners included a Vintage Ski Movie night with cozy couches and old-school skis décor, a guided ski excursion and a soup and chili cook-off. The client called the experience, "One of the most riveting activities of the year!"
