fell in love with Lanai fifteen years ago, built a home there six years ago and together with her husband Tom, have become immersed in the community which includes owning the landmark hotel in Lanai City,
and their award winning restaurant
Lanai City Grille.
Although new to Lanai, Mary’s played a key role in stimulating tourism and corporate travel to the benefit of the economies on all Hawaiian islands.
She built MC&A the largest and most well respected destination management company in Hawaii, from the ground up, growing from a two-person operation to offices on every island over 25 years.
She has entertained millions of guests attending some of the most important corporate and civic events in the world and has worked closely with and delighted the CEOs and boards of just about every Fortune 100 company.
Considered the “queen of theme,” Mary’s events are legendary in putting brands front and center in ways that other campaigns simply cannot — to fire enthusiasm and imagination, build company loyalty, encourage creative thinking and teamwork and create long-lasting memories.
Mary’s creativity knows no bounds.
Her “fun-touch” ability to overcome most obstacles with a smile and dedication to excellence is legendary.
She never says no. She gets it and gets it done.
Now Mary looks forward to working with you on Lanai.
