At the core of Belinda’s customer-centric philosophy is an unwavering commitment to putting clients first. Expect fairness, respect, honesty and the highest level of professional services at a fair and reasonable price from Destination Fabulous.
Belinda credits her late father, Gene Maguire, with instilling in her a sense of integrity, ethics and dedication that has been the cornerstone of her success. She saw how he ran his “Webber Farms Sausage” company with the highest standards of honesty and fair dealing, which earned him an outstanding reputation in that industry. And it is this same spirit of honesty, fairness and ethical behavior that sets Belinda apart both as a business professional, and as President of Destination Fabulous DMC.
She began her career in Destination Management working for USA Hosts as National Sales Manager in the Scottsdale/Phoenix market. Her success in selling USA Hosts’ services led to her being transferred to the company’s Las Vegas office as Director of Incentive Sales, focusing primarily on the Maritz Travel/Incentive account which was one of the company’s top clients at the time. Her responsibilities also included creating sales protocols, nurturing strong client relationships, continuously following up with clients, and leading targeted regional marketing campaigns in Las Vegas, and other regional markets.
While employed at USA Hosts in Las Vegas, Belinda helped launch a large-scale drug rollout to more than 5,000 sales representatives for Novartis, the world’s third-largest pharmaceutical company. She also created and executed a major event for more than 5,000 American Express attendees at the Palms Resort & Casino in Las Vegas which utilized all of the hotel’s venues to capacity.
During her professional career, Belinda successfully developed strong relationships with top Las Vegas hotels, including among others the Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, Wynn/Encore, Four Seasons and MGM Grand. In addition, she achieved the coveted “Preferred Vendor” status at several of these top-tier resorts. She also effectively managed the meeting/event needs and requirements of such high-profile accounts as Ariba, BlueCross/BlueShield, AIMIA, US Motivation, First Data, Fusion, Merrill Lynch, Campbell Soup, Toyota, Wells Fargo, Novartis, Maritz Canada, and Helmsbriscoe to name but a few.
