Destination Management Company (DMC) grows its team amidst strong Utah corporate business
PARK CITY, Utah (April 8, 2022) – Summit Events is proud to welcome Dave March as its new general manager and partner. March joins Rob Walsh, current president and partner, in spearheading the event planning firm as it looks to expand its operations in Park City and Salt Lake City. March’s first day will be Wednesday, April 20, 2022.
March most recently served as director of marketing and events for Canyons Village Management Association (CVMA) where he was responsible for driving and elevating the Canyons Village brand to ensure its stature as a vibrant, world-class, four-season mountain destination at the base of Park City Mountain, the largest ski and snowboard resort in the United States. As part of this role, March was responsible for the annual events strategy and was able to deliver signature events such as Tour of Utah, Park City Wine Festival, Oktoberfest and Canyons Village Summer Concert Series.
“I’m thrilled that Dave March is joining Summit Events. His reputation, relationships and extensive knowledge of the area will be a great asset to our already strong team, and I look forward to his stewardship as we expand our operations,” said Walsh. “This is an exciting time for our DMC, and I can’t wait to get started.”
Prior to his role at CVMA, March oversaw the marketing efforts at Kimball Art Center and was instrumental in the growth of Park City Mountain and Canyons Resort upon his arrival in Park City in 2000. He is on the board of directors of the Park City Chamber Bureau and Visitors Center and has a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Summit Events also recently hired a new director of operations, Andrea Kontos, who will provide further expertise and local knowledge. “Andrea Kontos has been an absolute rock star in her field and is highly admired. I’ve known her for years and am thankful that she’s part of our company,” Walsh said. Kontos comes from a successful fifteen-year career at a leading national healthcare recruiting and staffing firm and has led multiple client services teams in strategic planning and operational excellence. Kontos’ robust background in networking and recruiting, client development, account management and operational strategy will be a great addition to the growing Summit Events team. Kontos has been an active member of the Park City community since 2005.
