About ME

Hi, I am Ian Vogt, Director of Operations at Grand Welcome Destin and Miramar Beach.

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in managerial studies from Tiffin University and have a decade of experience in the hospitality industry, I have worked in various sectors, including restaurants, hotels, bed & breakfasts, and vacation rentals.

My goal is to take care of everything for you, so that you can spend time doing what is important to you.

Away from work, I treasure time spent with friends and family, whether out on the boat, relaxing at Henderson State Park, trying new restaurants, or enjoying some live music at The Harbor Tavern.
