Strategic New Business Director
Kaycee Mason is the Strategic New Business Director at YDM. She will likely be the first person you encounter from our team as she learns more about your company or organization and how YDM can serve your needs. Her role also entails participating in community events, serving on local leadership committees, and being accessible to our potential clients.
Kaycee was fortunate enough to grow up between Newport Beach, CA, Scottsdale, AZ, and the beaches of Mexico. She has always been passionate about adventure and learning about new cultures, which she developed from an early age through her frequent travels. After completing her college education, she started her career in the Timeshare industry in the Mexican Rivera. This gave her unique opportunities to promote various tropical destinations up and down the coastal beaches on both sides of the country.
In 2008, she came back to the United States and continued her career in hospitality. She worked as a B2B Regional Area Sales Manager for an Atlantic-based hospitality staffing company. Her role involved supporting over 200 hotel and resort accounts across Arizona, Colorado, and California. This opened doors to work with several luxury brands, including Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Marriott International, Wyndham Vacations, Hilton Hotels and Resorts, and Casino Arizona. After working in Hotel Operations, Sales, & Marketing, Kaycee was invited to work with Pacific Hospitality Group as a mentor for their College MIT program and Servant leadership, which led to the opening of ten boutique and corporate hotels.
At Yellow Duck, Kaycee is committed to providing creative solutions to our client’s challenges by serving as a trusted expert advisor. She enjoys the creative aspect of the sales process, understanding the client’s needs and bringing their vision to life.
In her free time, Kaycee loves spending time with her husband, three kids, and doodle dog, Cooper. She enjoys anything related to water – including lake life, beach life, and river life – as well as trying new foods and exploring new places.
