In 2002, James St. John, our President & CEO, completed a successful six year assignment at the well-respected Jupiter Island Club. During his tenure as COO & GM, he oversaw the club’s transition from family ownership to board governance by the residents, all while rebuilding the infrastructure, facilities and amenities of this century old institution.
Striking out on his own, he established Hospitality America LLC to provide a broad range of services to elite private clubs. By word of mouth, these services were soon sought out by hotels and resorts worldwide. In January of 2018, Hospitality America LLC transitioned to Precise Hospitality Management (PHM) to more accurately reflect the international scope of clients and their needs.
Over the past fifteen years the company has participated in diverse projects located in North and South America, Central America and the Caribbean as well as Europe and Africa. One of his early clients was the owners’ committee on board the residential vessel, M/V The World, perhaps the most complex and spectacular hospitality project on the planet.
