Position at Tripzter: Owner
Years in the Industry: 38
Languages: English, Sinhalese, some Arabic (from his time in the Gulf States)
I have been in the industry 35 years and have owned Tripzter Travel and Capri Travel for 18 years. I am well known in the industry from my time with British Airways, working for them in Sri Lanka, Oman, Bahrain and Canada. I have a degree from Simon Fraser in Business/Liberal Arts, a diploma in Flight Planning and several certificates and training in Sales, Flight Operations and Customer Service. I have had the good fortune of travelling widely – over 20 countries in 6 continents (just Antarctica left in terms of continents!), actually living and working in five countries. I enjoy travelling, meeting different people, rugby, tennis and shooting guns – targets only, not hunting! I am also involved in other business interests outside travel.
