LAS VEGAS —  Prominent industry leader Jennifer Patino is the CEO of USA Hosts, the leading Destination Management Company in North America for more than 50 years.

Patino resigned as both the CEO of Baskow & Associates, a Las Vegas DMC, and as the Chairperson of the Global Events Partners (GEP) Partner Advisory Board to accept the position.

“I am thrilled to join the fantastic team at USA Hosts in revitalizing our brand, expanding our Alliance globally and focusing on service excellence for our clients,” said Patino.  “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to take on an entirely new job with new responsibilities and challenges.  I am very excited.”

“We have generated a lot of momentum since we acquired the company less than a month ago, and many of the best in the DMC industry want to come to work with us.  More are on the way," said USA Hosts Chairman Frank Andrews. “These hires deepen a strong bench of leaders we already have in place, including Terry Epton, who is our President.”

Andrews is also the President and CEO of August Jackson, a communications design agency.

USA Hosts was the first-of-its-kind Destination Management Services Company in the United States, opening in San Francisco in 1958. Today it is a network of DMC’s servicing more than 40 destinations in North America. USA Hosts provides a full-service approach for special events, transportation management, lodging, venue selection, tours, activities, dining programs and much more.
