      Our Culture
      Just over 10 years ago, Don Clayton and Butch Patrick had little more than a vision for a vacation ownership company that would provide a lifetime of quality vacations to its owners and members, as well as opportunities for growth and rewards for employees. Little did they know, their vision would turn the next ten years of it into a reality for the vacation ownership industry and their employees. Currently Festiva encompasses 25 resort destinations, 1000 employees in eight different states and the Caribbean. One key standing element in Clayton and Patrick's philosophy that has been passed down to all employees is that of constant and consistent improvement.
