These roles along with 8 years in strategy consulting have given Sonia significant experience leading and working with UK based teams as well as pan-European and global teams.

Theng Hwee Chang - CEO Scott Dunn Asia

Theng Hwee became the CEO Scott Dunn Asia in 2018. He started a travel business (Country Vacations) in 1994 after a short stint with a bank. Equipped with a business degree and a strong passion for travel, this leap of faith turned out to be the best decision of his life. He's been to 160 countries (not that anyone is counting) but his all time favorite has to be Antarctica.

Andrew Dunn - President & Founder

Twenty two year old Andrew Dunn wanted to ski for free so took the unorthodox step to set up his own ski company. That was in 1986. Fast-forward 30 years and Scott Dunn has become a market leader in luxury customized travel. Andrew’s passion for travel and fastidious attention to detail still drives the company's 'nothing is too much trouble' philosophy. When you travel with Scott Dunn, you're not a client, you're our guest.
