SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 1, 2015 – AlliedPRA, Inc., a leader in the destination management company (DMC) sector, announces Margrete Chadwick has rejoined AlliedPRA as the new Director of Sales & Marketing for the AlliedPRA Los Angeles, Orange County and Palm Springs locations, according to Marty Mullen, CMP, DMCP, Senior Vice President – Corporately-Owned Offices, overseeing Los Angeles, Orange County, Palm Springs, San Diego, South Florida and Washington, D.C. destinations. Based out of the Orange County office, Chadwick is charged with managing the National Sales Management team in all three locations, generating new business leads, while expanding the AlliedPRA market in the region, to position these key markets for continued success, building on the solid momentum in place.
Chadwick’s career with AlliedPRA began last year when she joined the Global Sales Team to develop a brand new market segment in Germany and Austria. As the business strategy shifted in Europe, AlliedPRA was able to transition Chadwick to this new role and relocate her to Orange County to oversee the team.
With over 20 years of successful sales and marketing experience promoting resort properties and destinations in Southern California to Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Canadian and European markets, Chadwick is well-known and respected in the hospitality industry. Prior to joining AlliedPRA, she was a National Sales Manager at several high-end properties that include The Grand Del Mar, Four Seasons Aviara Carlsbad, Loews Coronado, and the Surf and Sand Hotel in Laguna Beach. In addition, Chadwick served as a National Sales Manager at the San Diego North Convention & Visitors Bureau. She holds a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in International Business with an emphasis in Spanish and Latin American Studies and is fluent in four languages.
“Margrete’s five-star training, coupled with her extensive and successful background in sales and marketing, as well as her core values and commitment to excellence, makes her a tremendous asset to our Southern California team,” shared Mullen. “In her previous global sales role, she was instrumental in opening new market channels, building solid client relationships for AlliedPRA, while making a positive impact for the AlliedPRA system. We wish her much success in this new endeavor!”
