AlliedPRA, Inc., a global leader in the destination management company (DMC) sector, announces today the company has officially acquired ownership of the AlliedPRA Palm Springs office, previously independently owned and operated by Robert and Susan Carey, according to Robert Patterson, Chief Operating & Financial Officer of AlliedPRA, Inc.

Robert and Susan Carey plan to retire from day-to-day business but will remain engaged with the business as consultants. The office will come under the ownership of the AlliedPRA International Group and the award-winning Palm Springs staff will be managed by well-known, industry veteran, Marty Mullen, CMP, DMCP, Vice President of AlliedPRA company-owned operations in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and South Florida.  

AlliedPRA Palm Springs and its excellent team of highly experienced DMC professionals, have produced innovative and expertly executed program operations for valued clients across every industry type, from executive retreats to grand-scale events. The entire AlliedPRA Palm Springs team is held in deep respect by its clients, suppliers, hoteliers and the wider Palm Springs business community for its consistently excellent DMC services. The team is known for its highly responsive and tailored client services. With Mullen overseeing regional sales activities and program operations, clients will experience the highest levels of service.  

“I am delighted to report that we successfully reached an agreement with Robert and Susan to acquire the Palm Springs operations and am particularly pleased they both will remain with AlliedPRA Palm Springs as business consultants, ensuring a smooth transition. The company will also continue to benefit from their extensive local expertise and strong relationships, as well as their innovative creative program design,” shared Denise Dornfeld, President of AlliedPRA North America. “The financial strength of AlliedPRA will allow us to increase investments in the Palm Springs office for further growth in this important Southern California DMC market.”   

“Mullen stated: “AlliedPRA operates three company-owned offices in Southern California and AlliedPRA Palm Springs will be closely integrated into our existing system. Given the proximity of locations, a number of AlliedPRA staff will be working together in program operations. We also intend to increase staff locally to continue to grow AlliedPRA’s business in this ever popular destination. I am very pleased that AlliedPRA remains in a working relationship with Robert and Susan and we wish them the best in their retirement as owner-managers!”
