Scott Dunn

The company

Founded in 1986 by Andrew Dunn, the company provides a broad range of luxury holidays from skiing and Mediterranean resorts to tailor-made journeys and bespoke honeymoons. Scott Dunn is recognised as a premium brand in the sector and is distinguished by delivering very high levels of service to its guests. It was voted number one specialist tour operator by the readers of Condé Nast Traveller in 2014.
The company operates within the luxury travel market, which has grown by more than 12% CAGR over the last three years, as demand from affluent customers in the UK and overseas has increased.
In 2010, Andrew Dunn, now President, appointed Simon Russell as Chief Executive.
