Ownership

Hello! Destination Management is wholly owned by Paul S. Mears, Jr. and his two sons, Paul S. Mears III and James B. Mears. Paul III and Jimmy represent the third generation of Mears working in the family business serving the hospitality industry. They are also shareholders of Mears Transportation Group, an Orlando-based ground transportation company with over 1,000 vehicles; including luxury sedans, luxury vans, SUVs, taxis, motor coaches and shuttle vans. Jimmy serves as Vice President of Operations for Mears and as a Director for Hello! Destination Management. Paul III is the President of Hello! Destination Management and is responsible for the everyday success of the organization.

As a family owned business, and one that does not franchise, clients can count on consistent philosophies, systems and service results. Further, all stakeholders (clients, employees and suppliers) can count on a consistent approach rather than violent swings in business practices to accommodate quarterly earnings pressures from institutional investors.

Hello! Destination Management is a family business with long term goals, run by professionals. All ingredients combined make Hello! Destination Management a great formula.
