Industry experts David Danneberg, (President/Sapphire Vacation Services and Resort Recovery Solutions) and Peter Gust, (CFO/ Sapphire Vacation Services and Resort Recovery Solutions) announce the formation of Paramount Vacation Services (a division of Sapphire Vacation Services, LLC).  The new entity offers new and innovative ways to engage timeshare members and owners, providing options to HOAs and Resort Developments without adding costs.

“Our passion is to make the owners and members that we service engaged and excited by enhancing their existing ownership program with value-added services and products,” said Peter Gust. “Dave and I are motivated and driven to create vacation and leisure products that breed revenue opportunities for our clients and increase member loyalty by increasing vacation options.”

Based on their 50 years combined experience, Danneberg and Gust are rolling out the first Paramount Vacation Services product –called Travel FreeEk– the second week in May (schedule to “Go-Live” mid – June).  With over 30 years of VO Sales and Marketing behind him, Danneberg says the marketing and sales potential that lays within this program is “astronomical.”

“Our initial users will be the members of current Sapphire and Resort Recovery clients with more and more clients coming on board,” he continued.   “Paramount is seeking out partners who are interested in additional revenue sources for their properties with more guests/tours/sales and to offer a new ’member benefit to their current membership.  It’s a WIN/WIN program!”

The TravelFreeEk network is designed to be an online marketplace for easy travel for members in the network. Eventually the site will expand to offer more options for members, but initially it will be driven by a pricing matrix that every “member/owner” is accustomed to with an emphasis on “the experience” as opposed to only “the destination”.

All this will be coordinated by Paramount Vacation Services offices in San Diego, CA. “We look at ourselves as a solutions partner, not just a service provider.  Our exceptional customer service is at the core of our expansion into this arena, “says Gust. “Our boutique style, with high personal touch makes Paramount Vacation Services stand out from the pack.”

The two timeshare veterans will be unveiling their project during the annual timeshare convention in Las Vegas, May 6-10 and are inviting all HOA board members, Management Companies, Resort Developers and Marketing Directors to sit down with them to discuss how their product can enhance member satisfaction and resort revenues.  For more information, contact
