RMC, a destination management and special events company, announced the opening of its 9th office property located in Austin. The company is the United States’ largest operating destination management business and is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. 

"We have had this expansion in the works for several months after reviewing with clients where RMC was needed," said Shawn Thomson-Palermo, RMC owner. "Each of our locations are exciting, growing, and in need of our services when it comes to a quality destination management product and we will continue to explore additional locations as they present themselves."

Senior operations manager, Wendy Reed and the director of sales, Bridget Nelson will be leading the Austin property. Both Reed and Nelson have worked for NFP Insurance Services for a combined total of 17 years serving in management and director positions. The women will be operating in partnerships with some of the country’s most prominent resorts throughout the West.
