Meet the Team
We are proud to have a wealth of travel experience within our team, supported by a great team of sales and operations executives.
John has 20 years’ experience of working within the travel industry in many different aspects. John started in working in a local travel agent where he learned many different aspects of travel and how the industry operates, from selling to clients on the front counter, to liaising with the travel trade, this is where John caught the travel bug, and he got a real buzz from helping customers and Agents find their perfect holiday.
John then moved into the tour operating side of travel, were he was renowned for high level of customer service and having a positive and can-do attitude, during this time, John led a highly regarded, award winning team. A move into the corporate travel side of the industry would see John look after many of the top companies across UK/Ireland as well as taking care of travel for some A list movie and sports stars throughout the globe. John quickly excelled within the corporate environment and was soon leading a team of emergency travel consultants who would have to think quick on their feet and produce new a challenging issue daily.
John is a very keen sports fan and loves to go and watch live sports whenever he can get the chance and he soon realised that there was a gap especially in Northern Ireland to provide consumer and corporate clients with a unique sports offering. Initially the aim of starting up the company was to provide clients the opportunity to get to the big horse race meetings in Ireland, this idea then grew to giving people the opportunity to go on yard visits, and see behind the scenes, an experience John recently loved on a tour of Willie Mullins yard. The business offering then very quickly grew and expanded to provide for other sports such as football, rugby, snooker and even a new product to the market in UK/Ireland which is poker cruises which are all onboard an amazing Royal Caribbean ship and can be exclusively booked through Sports Entertainment Tours.
Within the business John is very hands on with every aspect. The aim of the business for John is to provide top quality sports packages that our customers will love, with a top class customer experience from start to finish and at a very competitive cost.
