Our goal in creating Arizona Creative Events was to provide a boutique destination management company with exceptional service. It was built with a professional, old school approach to business. Integrity and earning the trust and respect of our clients are important to us. Over the past 18 successful years, we have been awarded key accounts and preferred hotels. We are proud that a majority of our business is repeat clients and referrals.
Our mission is to plan extraordinary events that create a feeling, a memory and an experience! It is important for us to listen and understand what is important to our customers. Clients are family to us…we support you, have your back, want the best for you, so we strive to deliver an amazing and unforgettable event.
We are pleased to announce we have grown, and our team has decades of experience in DMC, resorts, off site catering, venues and restaurants. Our knowledge, positive energy, loyalty and dedication provides creativity, support and an incredible value. We have the ability to customize based on your budget and look forward to the challenge to exceed your expectations.
It would be a pleasure to partner with you on your next meeting, product launch, private event or incentive program in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Thank you for an opportunity to earn your business!
Since Jack was 10 years old, he has experienced the hospitality and service industry first hand. His father was a Senior Vice President of Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. As a natural in resort sales, Jack had a successful career at the Hyatt Gainey Ranch and The Boca Raton Resort and Club. Upon his return to Arizona, he was selected to manage a local venue that was a creation of Steven Speilberg and Dreamworks.
In 1999, he was proud to establish Arizona Creative Events. His goal was to make a difference for customers looking to team with a DMC in Arizona. ACE started off as a small company with a hands-on approach to business. Jack’s dedication to provide a quality product at a reasonable price was his mission. Over the past 17 years, he has been the preferred DMC at the Firesky Resort (currently known as The Scott) and the hotel Palomar/Kimpton properties. A majority of his customers are repeat clients and referrals, which speaks volumes to his success. Jack is excited to build his business and establish new relationships with clients and local resorts. ACE is still a boutique DMC with a hands-on approach but has expanded the team to provide even more knowledge and support to our clients.
He is a man who believes integrity, trust and respect are the most important qualities in owning a business. A client’s satisfaction and appreciation after a successful event is what lights the fire within him. A dedicated husband and a father to two beautiful girls, he values family and does his best to balance his roles! You will find him on a golf course, enjoying sports or traveling with his lovely wife, Patricia.

Arizona native and Northern Arizona State University alumnus, Monique spent 17 years planning and executing entertainment industry events in Los Angeles such as Wolfgang Pucks Food and Wine Festival, The American Music Awards Red Carpet, Grammy’s Foo Fighters performance and X Games. She has a keen sense of client needs and passion for staying relevant of what’s current in the event industry. Working for Hyatt, NBC Universal, Fox Studios, LA LIVE, and Wolfgang Puck gave her exposure to the fast-paced and demanding environment of producing live events while honing her creative skills in event design.
Monique began working in the DMC industry upon returning to Arizona in 2011. Discovering that producing corporate programs that involve showcasing the unique environment and activities of Arizona became a new passion. She is always looking for that new or unique experience for groups that will be sure to leave them wanting to return to Arizona.
Monique loves discovering new restaurants and watering holes. She is the “go-to” source for friends or colleagues with out of town visitors. Her dog, Daisy, is a source of ongoing shenanigans and entertaining stories.
