James Minton, CDME, Vice President of Strategic Planning & Marketing, Visit Santa Barbara
James is a curious fellow who soothes his untreated travel addiction by working in DMO-land, inspiring others to achieve their travel dreams. Likely the only person in the room who has been to both Lichtenstein and Myanmar, he lives his life trying to make his grandmother proud. “Go see the world while you are young,” she would say. With expertise in cruise revenue management, DMO leadership and wine drinking, James markets the American Riviera – Santa Barbara, California.
