DIRECTOR OF SALES
Jill D’Artenay was born and raised in Philadelphia, she moved to San Diego in 1999. She graduated from Cal State San Marcos with a Business Degree and began my career in event sales for On Broadway Event Center/ Visco Entertainment right out of college. Jill worked for various event venues in downtown San Diego before leaving the industry in 2008. She kept her business contacts and that is what brought her to Parq today.
Jill chose to work at Parq because of the people. "Not only is Parq an amazing venue to sell, but the people I get to work with are stellar. Veronica is a dedicated sales manager willing to go above and beyond. Hugo and I go waaaaay back to the On Broadway days. We have a great working relationship and I know I can count on them to help me bring my events to life and ultimately please our clients!"
Jill doesn’t think there is a “typical” day in the sales department. Days vary from site tours with prospective clients, to checking emails, writing proposals, sending contracts, meeting with local Destination management companies, visiting the Convention Center to build relationships and detailing every aspect of upcoming events. The list goes on and on…"that’s why I love what I do. Never a dull moment."
