With this element of the dream now fulfilled, I’m excited to announce MCI’s intention to further accelerate its buy/build plans in the United States in the near term."

MCI USA CEO Tom Gibson added: "Wyndham Jade is a proven innovator in event technology and logistical execution. Together with MCI’s other recent acquisitions, the synergistic addition of Wyndham Jade enables MCI to serve associations and corporations with an impactful array of strategic and tactical solutions along the entire events value chain."

Shawn Pierce, president, strategic event management MCI USA, will lead the Wyndham Jade platform from Dallas, integrating its capabilities into MCI USA’s overall association and corporate meetings and events portfolio.  

Wyndham Jade now operates as Wyndham Jade, an MCI Group company and becomes the newest part of MCI USA. Headquartered just outside Dallas, Texas in the fast growing city of Plano, with offices in Arizona, Iowa, Georgia and Illinois, Wyndham Jade brings 120 new staff members to MCI USA.
