Here’s the throwback headline for this week: Hunter, Jervis join Carousel

The 1980s lead story reported that Colin Hunter and Paul Jervis had left tour operator Sunflight to join Carousel Tours. At that time, Hunter was VP Operations for Sunflight, and Jervis was VP Product.

Hunter, of course, is a legend in the travel industry, with a long list of successful ventures including some with Jervis. Hunter founded Sunwing in 2002 and is currently the chairman of the board, and owner of Sunwing Travel Group.
