Lex's Story

About Lex

I should have gone into banking! You make more money and you certainly work less hours…still I have had three pretty substantial careers in the meeting and convention business and I’ve never sustained any lasting physical injuries…

I began adulthood at The New York Hilton, and remained with them as Director of Sales at the San Diego Hilton on Mission Bay and at The Hilton Hawaiian Village. In 1982, I returned home to Americas Finest City to open the Hotel InterContinental San Diego now the San Diego Marriott and Marina.

In the late 1980’s and on through 2003, I owned Enjoy California Enterprises a large destination management. I also was a founding member of ADME (The Assn. of Destination Management Executives) and a past President of the organization.

For the past 8 years, based in San Diego, I was the Executive Director of The CONTACT DMC Group, the oldest of the DMC sales and marketing consortiums.

In short, I have been a stalwart in the San Diego Hotel and Event Industry for over 35 years. I know the players; the ones who are all flash and the ones that the professionals utilize….and you can take my word for it.
