Stephen, whose life in travel began in 1972 when he worked for Palmair in Majorca, joined Bath Travel in 1977 at a time when the company had 24 branches. For the next 14 years, Stephen worked across marketing and sales functions before taking over at the helm of the business in 1991. Since then, he has helped establish Bath Travel as one of the UK’s leading independent tour operators with over sixty branches across the south of England and a turnover of £150m. In addition to Bath Travel, Stephen has also co-founded a regional airline, run a successful air charter business and gained a license to pilot light aircraft.
