"Dee Dee is very proactive in promoting her clients to the media. But in a way that works for journalists--which is her special gift. She's straightforward, understands the business, and delivers on what she promises. An unbeatable formula." Bruce Serlen, Executive Editor, Hotel Business
Working since 1980 to help businesses and organizations manage their messages, Dee Dee Dochen founded DDD Marketing Communications in 1994 on an established record of professional service, personal attention, creativity and collaboration.
Dee Dee's marketing communications career has its roots in the hospitality industry. As Director of Convention Sales for the Austin (Texas) Convention & Visitors Bureau in the mid-80s, she fine-tuned the notion of combining creative ideas and a team of "specialists" – hotels, attractions, restaurants, musicians – to help manage the message of, in that case, a city.
In 1988, she moved to Washington, D.C., and served as a Director of Public Relations and Marketing Programs for Marriott International, Inc. It was here that she gained deep experience in integrated communications, affiliate marketing with Fortune 500 companies, crisis communications, and in creating and executing marketing communication solutions for a nationwide network of hotels.
In late 1994, Dee Dee relocated to Houston and opened her business with Marriott International, Inc. as a client. She has since expanded both her client reach and her network of affiliated professionals, surrounding herself with associates and partners who share a commitment to excellence and enthusiasm for results.
Dee Dee is an active community leader, involved with organizations that support the arts, children with special needs, human and civil rights, and education.
"We are attracted to clients who are passionate – about their product, their service, their employees and their community."

DDD Marketing Communications
"Outside consultant' doesn't fit Dee Dee, because she seems like a natural part of the team – in sync with our culture and our goals."
