About

We’ve been doing this for 35 years, but damn, you never know what we’ll do next.

Like any company, we started small in San Diego in 1978. Then, we got really good at what we do. We listened to our clients. We collaborated. We customized. We created a culture of respect, responsiveness, and, above all, creativity. Today, 360 Destination Group is the leading full-service destination management company in the nation built on our  “Three Ps”: Passionate, Personalized, Progressive. Work hard, play hard – it’s what we live, eat, and breathe. Here are the partners who lead us on that charge in all of our major destinations across the country, from California and Arizona, to Texas, Chicago, and Florida.

Aka the cogs that make our well-oiled machine hum.

Trevor has been in the DMC industry since age 10.

Born into the business as son of the founders of an award-winning DMC, TMM (The Meeting Manager), Trevor grew up packing coolers and delivering props. After working as a trip director for several years, he returned in 1996 to run and expand TMM leading to the merge of TMM and Destination PROS in 2012 into 360 Destination Group. An avid surfer, turbo father of two teenage girls, and stickler when it comes to how an old-fashioned is made, he loves to be active in several industry organizations, including FICP, SITE, and ADME, as well as several hospitality industry Advisory Boards.

Shelly makes Magellan look like a home body.

An Orange County native, she began her hospitality career with a five-star cruise ship line, circumnavigating the globe several times and stepping foot on almost every continent by the age of 30. Today, Shelly has more than 20 years in the service-oriented travel industry under her belt. Combine that with additional experience at a local incentive company and a destination management company, and she had the perfect background for owning a top-notch DMC in Southern California.

For Pete, the magic happens over a shared experience.

A Southern California native, he studied psychology in Long Beach at Marymount College and Cal State, developing an interest in how he could help people grow by creating an ideal working environment. Twenty-plus years in the travel industry later, it paved the way for Pete to start his own DMC, where he found he had a knack for creating shared experiences that bring people together – a quality that would eventually bring him to 360 Destination Group.
