New owner transforming Dynasty Travel into travel tech company, planning luxe experiences

dynasty travel ceo

SINGAPORE - Dynasty Travel, a brand-name agency established in 1978, is transforming into a travel technology company for the post-pandemic landscape.

It was acquired late last year in an eight-figure deal by Travel Curators, a Singapore-headquartered travel technology company that began as a mobile app targeted at affluent travellers seeking bespoke travel services in Japan.

The global pandemic is an opportune moment to digitalise Dynasty Travel, after its 100 per cent acquisition from JTB Asia Pacific, a subsidiary of Japan's largest travel company JTB Corporation, said Mr Teo Tianyi, founder of Travel Curators.

"With leisure and business travel severely disrupted by the ongoing pandemic, we see a unique opportunity to lead the digitalisation of the travel agency industry, and provide greater value-added services for global clients seeking safe and hassle-free ways to explore and learn more about our planet," said the Singaporean private equity investor, who was based in Tokyo for a decade.

The niche experiences in Japan crafted by Travel Curators include hunting ezo-bafun sea urchins with local fishermen on Rishiri Island in Hokkaido, while learning about how climate change is affecting the population of these ocean delicacies.

Travellers can also harvest organic mazuma wasabi with an artisanal grower who picks off pests by hand daily.

Travel Curators, a start-up founded in 2016, works closely with local communities in Japan and other countries to design one-of-a-kind experiences that also create a positive impact on the people, economy and environment of each place.

It is helping to preserve culture by, for instance, producing short films on best-in-class Japanese artisans, many of whom are retiring without successors. These include a Noh mask carver in Kyoto and an incense maker in Osaka.

Though it has stayed low profile, its refreshing approach to bespoke travel and efforts to give back have been highlighted by international media, including National Geographic and Esquire.

Bloomberg reported in 2018 that it has "an impressive Rolodex with the country's elite, facilitating everything from brown bear safaris in Hokkaido to private dinners with the cast of a live-action manga movie".

In the same spirit, Dynasty Travel, one of the largest travel agencies in Singapore, will design bespoke adventures aligned with the environmental and social responsibility practices of its new owner - beginning with chartered luxury cruises to exotic places such as Antarctica and the Galapagos this year, Mr Teo said.

Journeys to Indonesian rainforests to learn more about wildlife protection and climate change are also being planned.

In line with the new ethos, the premises of Dynasty Travel in New Bridge Road will be redesigned for clients to enjoy a concierge-style customer experience that differs from the previous counter-style format.

The office floors will also be revamped to reflect the company's new technology-driven business approach, with an array of spaces such as quiet spots for focused work and relaxing common areas for informal discussions.

Meanwhile, the company is also recruiting new talent to strengthen its management team.

The rebranded Dynasty Travel is expected to amplify its presence in Asia under the ownership of Travel Curators, which also supplies its proprietary Tora-Q trip planning and management technology to leading travel agencies around the world.

In a strategic partnership, Travel Curators is also providing its Tora-Q system to JTB Asia Pacific to transform its business model and create new digital touchpoints for clients.

JTB Asia Pacific will also leverage Travel Curators' technology and trip curation expertise to design unique travel experiences around the world for a global clientele.

More transformation lies ahead. Mr Teo said: "As worldwide travel demand rebounds in the coming years, our acquisition of Dynasty Travel will put us in a prime position to rapidly grow our business and user base."

CUSTOMER REVIEW

The May trip to Japan “The Best Of Central Honshu”, was a very good experience especially the Alpine Route. This “Premium Tour” small group was very good, from total strangers became good friends. Very Good Food and Hotel arrangements. I would like to compliment Ms Diana Chua, our Singapore Tour Leader, she is pleasant, very caring and helpful. The Japan Tour Guide Philip Tan was good too.

As a first-time client of Travel Curators, I did not know what to expect. But by the end of my trip, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of their service, their systematic planning and especially their responsiveness throughout the trip to last minute requests. They lived up to their billing as a white glove travel concierge service. While I could do my own research and plan a rough itinerary to meet my families’ specific interests, Travel Curators helped tremendously. Thanks to Travel Curators, my family left Japan with many fond memories.”

Had a 12 day private tour to Japan via Dynasty Travel. Overall, a refreshing, memorable and meaningful trip given our focused and free and easy tour. Meticulous and customised arrangements to fulfil our requirements. We thus have a good grasp of both Kyoto and Nagoya, and Japan in general after this trip.

Good food and hotel and itinerary. Their tours are good. Went with them to Turkey in Oct 22.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience to Central Honshu with Dynasty travel in May. Itinerary is good (esp. the Alpine Route!) and not so rushing throughout the trip. Tour leader, Diana, is friendly, well organized and helpful. She attend to our needs from simple things like buying fruits to buying Sake. 🍶😁 Also, Diana always make effort to look out on my elderly sister! Our travelling group were all lovely companions and everybody got along very well – A very comforting feeling! Overall the whole trip was very enjoyable. Good job Dynasty! 👍

Did a Mie/Aichi Japan private trip in early April. Thanks to Stephanie and her team, our needs and interests were met. Fine details like our food and accommodation preference from our previous Shizuoka trip in 2022 were noted. The clam digging experience in Aichi perfecture was definitely a unique birthday gift for my wife. Looking forward to our next trip.

Founders grove wealth partners launches into independence with dynasty financial partners.

Team to Offer Personalized Investment and Planning Service to Select Clientele

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 30, 2024 --( BUSINESS WIRE )--Dynasty Financial Partners today announced that Founders Grove Wealth Partners has joined its industry-leading platform of technology-driven independent wealth management tools and services.

Based in Richmond, VA, Founders Grove, a fiduciary firm, will operate on a fee-only basis, with the goal of offering premium technology and customized advisory offerings to meet the evolving needs of their clients, who include entrepreneurs, business owners, and corporate executives.

Led by Financial Advisor Jeremiah Winters as Founder, Managing Partner, CEO, Founders Grove has four professionals, including two advisors, who previously managed over $750 million at Salomon and Ludwin. Joining Winters are:

Kate Atwood (Founder, Managing Partner, President)

Jen Thompson (Chief Operating Officer)

Abbey Sorensen (Director of Client Experience)

"We are pleased to welcome the Founders Grove team to our Dynasty family and thrilled to include a new firm in the steadily expanding Richmond, Virginia market," said Shirl Penney, CEO and Founder of Dynasty Financial Partners. "Founders Grove impressed us with their deep commitment to their clients, and their embrace of independence as the best means of putting them first. We were also impressed with the team’s desire to build and own their own business, like other Dynasty Network firms, and they felt that being in the Dynasty Network would allow them to be independent but not alone."

Currently, 55 independent firms representing 370 advisors comprise the Dynasty network, and the firm maintains over $88 billion on its core technology platform.

The Founders Grove team chose its name to reflect the generous and dynamic nature of their clients, who have worked hard to create rich legacies for their communities and families. The firm hopes to offer expert and personalized attention to help them continue to prosper, and even branch out into new endeavors.

On the team’s decision to launch into independence with Dynasty, Winters said: "We knew we needed a partner that would allow us to continue to operate as fiduciaries and Dynasty's triangulation of advice resonated with us. We want to keep products and client assets and custody separate from advice so that we have the freedom to do what we believe is best for our clients. We wanted a partner that had expertise in technology, cyber security, human resources, payroll, and many other aspects of running a business so our clients could be our primary focus. We couldn’t be more proud to have Founders Grove powered by Dynasty!"

Founders Grove has selected Charles Schwab for custody of their client assets.

Dynasty Travel was founded in 1978 and following its acquisition by Travel Curators, has recently undergone a brand transformation. Its iconic dragon brand logo has been refreshed with a contemporary design and new colour palette. The ground floor of its Singapore headquarters building has also been transformed into the World X Lounge – where clients can browse travel literature or speak with experienced travel concierge planners.

The company’s new mission statement is “travel well, learn more and do good”. In this line, sustainability will be a key focus of the company. Its newly revamped itineraries now incorporate low carbon, “slow travel” walking or biking segments. Guests will also experience intimate encounters with locals who will show them a different side of their host countries. The economic benefits of their travel will go to the local communities.

“The recent pandemic has provided a much-needed reset for the travel industry, and at Dynasty Travel, we believe that luxury travel, when done properly, can be transformed into a force for doing good,” said Teo Tian Yi, owner of Dynasty Travel.

Tourism CEOs: The Link Between Pay and Performance

CEOs at destination marketing organizations are compensated based on the economic impact they have. Independent research is needed.

Dawit Habtemariam

Skift recently reviewed the pay for more than two dozen top bosses at U.S. destination marketing organizations (DMOs) and results varied widely: From less than $200,000 a year to more than $1.5 million — 14 made more than a half-million dollars in 2022, the most recent data available. 

But determining a DMO’s value isn’t clear-cut. One issue is that it’s difficult to assess how much credit a DMO should take for tourism. After all, there are several reasons a tourist may visit that have nothing to do with marketing. 

It’s even harder to attribute results to the CEO. 

“A core part of the job is to promote the destination, but I think that the question then is how much of the success is attributable to that particular CEO,” said Michele McKenzie, former CEO of Destination Canada. “I would be a bit wary of directly attributing a full economic impact to one person.”

As part of a CEO’s compensation review, a DMO’s board of directors considers a range of metrics, according to Mike Gamble, president of SearchWide Global, an executive recruiting firm. 

For example, did the DMO’s marketing efforts lead to higher visitor spending, convention bookings, and higher hotel occupancy rates? Those are factors that drive critical tax revenues for a local economy.

Visit Florida’s Return on Investment

Florida’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research released a review in March and estimated, for every dollar the state invested in Visit Florida between 2019 and 2022, it received just 58 cents in return. 

That’s a low return on investment, but the researchers said Covid was to blame and that Visit Florida has typically returned much more. 

“They are absolutely the three worst Covid-impacted years to be measured against what happened in that period,” said Amy Baker, chief economist for the state legislature and coordinator for the agency.

The researchers expect the return on investment to climb to $3.30, in line with past levels, said Baker. In its analysis for the 2016-2019 cycle, Visit Florida had an estimated ROI of $3.27.

“If you’re thinking about the program going forward, we fully expect that they’re going to be back at the levels we’ve seen in the past,” said Baker, adding that those levels make it “among the top programs of the state.”

The state government invested $146 million in Visit Florida in the 2019-2022 cycle. Visit Florida CEO and President Dana Young made $214,876 in 2022. The state limits the amount of CEO compensation that can come from government funds to $120,000.  

Brand USA’s Impact

Brand USA, America’s destination marketing organization, has shown varied results from its marketing: a return of $34.36 for every $1 spent in 2013 to as low as $1.05 in 2021 during the Covid pandemic, according to a report in November 2023 by the Congressional Research Service . 

But the CRS report notes that Brand USA commissioned the firm that did the ROI analysis and cites a 2014 Skift article that questioned Brand USA’s findings. 

One 2019 academic study cited by CRS found Brand USA’s advertising has had “little effect on inbound international travel to the U.S.” once economic factors like exchange rates were taken into account. 

“The organization presents a picture of success to sustain funding given that, when adding social, economic, and other controls for the nations targeted, their marketing efforts abroad do not work well,” the study said. 

“It’s a challenge to tap into those psychological reasons of why people want to visit,” said Staci M. Zavattaro, co-author of the study and professor of public administration at the University of Central Florida, told Skift.

“Considering these factors, Congress may be interested in authorizing a neutral, third-party evaluation of Brand USA,” the CRS report said.

Brand USA’s ROI analysis was completed by Tourism Economics, a research firm and subsidiary of Oxford Economics.  Tourism Economics President Adam Sacks said its ROI studies isolate external factors that will influence tourism to accurately capture Brand USA’s impact.

“We include those in the model as offsetting effects. Because one of the control factors is how is the U.S. performing relative to expectations based on exchange rates, economic performance, and that overall outbound market as it — as it ebbs and flows,” he said.

Sacks added that Tourism Economics’ study goes deeper than other studies thanks to its access to data. The study, for example, uses mobile device location data to determine how many travelers visited the U.S. after they saw a Brand USA digital advertisement, he said. 

“Tourism Economics is widely respected as a trusted source of information, data, and analytics related to the travel and tourism industry. In fact, Adam Sacks, Tourism Economics president, also serves on the [U.S. Secretary of Commerce’s] Travel and Tourism Advisory Board,” said a Brand USA spokesperson.

Tourism boards have an easier time measuring the impact from meetings, conventions, and large events, according to Don Welsh, CEO and president of Destinations International. Events have a scheduled start and end date, and group-room bookings. DMOs know how many attendees came who wouldn’t have otherwise visited. 

“The easiest thing to measure for the most part are meetings and events,” said Welsh. 

Board Members Support the CEOs 

Some DMO board members credit their destination’s success to the CEO.

“Atlanta is doing extremely well, and I credit that to the leadership that has a fantastic team that is at the Greater Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau,” said Leona Barr-Davenport, a board member for Atlanta’s convention bureau and president and CEO of Atlanta Business League.

Tourism board CEOs can open up new markets through creative campaigns, said Travis Wilburn, a former board member of Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau and co-founder of the 100 Collection , a vacation-rental company.

“Some of the tourism is going to come no matter what,” said Wilburn. “You can look at the individual success of the individual campaigns that they [the CEO] have created and/or worked on.”

Tourism board CEOs entice meeting planners to come to pick their destination for conventions and events, both of which bring large groups of business to hotels and downtown businesses.

“They are hugely important. That’s the only organization that can talk collectively with meeting planners,” said Vijay Dandapani, a member of NYC Tourism’s board of directors and CEO and president of the Hotel Association of New York City.

According to Welsh, CEOs have to defend their budgets, room night goals, estimated convention sales, and expected economic impact in front of their boards of directors.

“I’m not exaggerating, in many cities it’s a good 30-60 day discussion before you arrive at that number, both at a budget and a goal standpoint,” he said.

Welsh said executives are heavily scrutinized by their boards.

“Every destination organization has an annual business plan that is approved by their board of directors,” he said. 

It’s Tough to Evaluate Economic Impact Objectively 

But some boards of directors and their compensation committees may not be in the best position to evaluate performance. 

Independent research is limited. And a lot of economic analysis doesn’t take into account alternative places tax dollars could have gone, including other projects or government programs.

Many boards are dominated by tourism and hotel industry veterans and local businesses, and their members serve on a non-paid, voluntary basis.

“The people there, they’ve been there for a few years. They’re usually friends with the CEO,” said McKenzie. 

McKenzie said having someone not hired by management to evaluate impact is key to transparency and ensuring that CEOs are paid what they are actually worth.

Still, McKenzie said you can’t paint with a broad brush.

“Some of these CEOs are probably underpaid, some of them are probably overpaid,” she said.

Meet the Hunt family, the billionaire owners of the Kansas City Chiefs and one of America's richest dynasties

  • The Hunt family is one of the wealthiest families in America , thanks to early investments in oil.
  • They're widely known as the owners of the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • Lamar Hunt founded the team in 1959; his son, Clark Hunt, is now its CEO.

Insider Today

The Kansas City Chiefs are used to making headlines for their Super Bowl wins, star quarterback , and connections to Taylor Swift . But this time, it's kicker Harrison Butker and members of the Hunt family — who own the team Butker plays for — making waves online following his controversial commencement speech at Benedictine College, a small Catholic school in Atchison, Kansas, earlier this month.

In his address on May 11, Butker told women in the audience they'd been told "the most diabolical lies" about the value in pursuing a career. He also told men to be "unapologetic" in their masculinity and fight "the cultural emasculation of men."

His words immediately drew backlash , including from the sisters of Mount St. Scholastica , nuns affiliated with the college. They wrote in a statement on their website that his words "seem to have fostered division."

However, the wife and daughter of Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt , Tavia Shackles Hunt and Gracie Hunt , appeared to support Butker in respective social media posts and TV appearances.

The Hunt family's connections to the Chiefs run deep, as Clark's father, Lamar Hunt, was the team's founder and original owner. But the real story of the Hunt family begins with American oil tycoon, H.L. Hunt.

Here's everything you need to know about the Hunt family dynasty, worth an estimated $24.8 billion.

Rachel Askinasi contributed to an earlier version of this report.

Haroldson Lafayette Hunt made his fortune in the oil industry.

In 1964, The New York Times reported that almost 30 years after H.L. Hunt founded the Hunt Oil Company, his family had an estimated fortune of $700 million (around $7 billion in today's money).

At the time of the report, the company was producing oil and natural gas in 12 states, including Texas, Louisiana, and North Dakota.

With his great success in the oil business, H.L. Hunt reportedly invested profits in other industries, such as publishing, cosmetics, and even pecan farming.

Encyclopedia Britannica reported that Hunt funded Facts Forum, his foundation for producing conservative, anti-Communist radio and television programs, from 1951 to 1956.

Hunt died in 1974 with an estimated net worth between $2 billion and $3 billion.

His fortune was put into trusts for each of his 15 children, whom he had with three different women.

One of his sons, Ray Lee Hunt, is the wealthiest of all 15 siblings.

dynasty travel ceo

Forbes reported that Ray Lee Hunt has a net worth of $7.2 billion, as of May 2024. He is chairman emeritus of Hunt Consolidated, Inc. which includes Hunt Oil Company, Hunt Energy, and Hunt Realty Investments.

Ray's sister, Caroline Rose Hunt, founded Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in 1979 after her father left her The Rosewood Corporation.

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts was sold to New World Hospitality (now known as Rosewood Hotel Group) in 2011 for $229.5 million, per AP News and PR Newswire .

Caroline Rose Hunt died in 2018 at age 95.

Their brother, William Herbert Hunt, led their oil and gas company Petro-Hunt.

Before his death in April 2024, William Herbert Hunt served as an advisor to management at Petro-Hunt. Per the company website , his family continues to own and operate Petro-Hunt, which, in addition to its focus on oil and gas also purchases minerals and royalties, invests in real estate, and also partially owns an oil refinery.

Another brother, Lamar Hunt, cofounded the American Football League.

dynasty travel ceo

Per the Pro Football Hall of Fame , Lamar Hunt founded the American Football League (AFL) in 1959 to rival the National Football League (NFL) after being refused access to buying a franchise. Since the AFL and NFL officially merged in 1970, the Lamar Hunt Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the AFC Championship.

Lamar also founded the Kansas City Chiefs (originally known as the Dallas Texans), which the family still owns today.

Lamar's four children and his wife, Norma Hunt, inherited the Kansas City Chiefs after he died in 2006.

dynasty travel ceo

Norma Hunt died in 2023 at the age of 85, leaving siblings Clark Hunt, Sharron Hunt Munson, Lamar Hunt Jr., and Daniel Hunt, as co-owners of the team, Forbes reported.

Clark Hunt, 59, is the chairman and CEO of the Chiefs organization.

dynasty travel ceo

Per the Kansas City Chiefs , Hunt took over as CEO in 2010 and hired Andy Reid as head coach in 2013. Since then, the Chiefs have created a winning dynasty with three Super Bowl wins in five seasons led by Reid, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and tight end Travis Kelce.

In addition to the Chiefs, the Lamar Hunt family owns the MLS team FC Dallas and a minority stake in the Chicago Bulls.

dynasty travel ceo

Forbes reported that in addition to being chairman and CEO of the Chiefs, Clark Hunt is also chairman and CEO of FC Dallas, while his brother Dan Hunt is the soccer club's president.

The Lamar Hunt family also has a large real-estate portfolio built under Hunt Midwest, based in Kansas City.

dynasty travel ceo

According to the company's website , Hunt Midwest is a "privately held real estate development company" with "more than $2.5 billion of developed projects" including senior living communities and residential, multifamily, and industry-focused locations like SubTropolis.

Clark Hunt is married to Tavia Shackles Hunt.

dynasty travel ceo

The couple married in 1993 and have three children together: Gracie, Ava, and Knobel.

Shackles Hunt is from Kansas City, Missouri, and was involved in beauty pageants, winning Miss Missouri Teen USA, Miss Kansas USA, and finishing second runner-up at the Miss USA pageant, People reported.

She has also worked as director of the Chiefs Women's Organization.

"I love being a leader of it and organizing events to familiarize our extended football family with Kansas City and plug them into serving the community," she told Her Life Magazine in 2018.

"It bonds us together on the field and off the field to gather to serve the community and enjoy fellowship together," she added.

Their daughter, Gracie Hunt, was crowned Miss Kansas USA in 2021 and works in public relations for the Chiefs.

dynasty travel ceo

Gracie Hunt, 25, grew up playing soccer but was forced to stop after suffering four concussions. She then pivoted to beauty pageants, winning Miss Texas Teen International in 2016, Miss Texas International in 2018, and Miss Kansas in 2021.

Hunt now works in public relations for the Chiefs and acts as an NFL brand ambassador, sharing her life with her 571,000 followers on Instagram.

She is also a philanthropist, having founded Breaking Barriers Through Sports in 2016. According to her website , the organization "aims to give people a positive identity and confidence through athletics and living a healthy lifestyle."

Tavia and Gracie seemed to voice their support for Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker following his controversial commencement speech in May 2024.

dynasty travel ceo

Nearly a week after Butker's address, Shackles Hunt shared photos of her and her daughters on Instagram as well as a diagram documenting the pros and cons of stay-at-home parenting and a screenshot of an article on the happiness of married couples. In the lengthy caption, Shackles Hunt wrote that she's always encouraged her daughters to be educated and "chase their dreams," but noted that she also wants them to know that finding a spouse and raising a family "is one of the greatest blessings this world has to offer."

"Affirming motherhood and praising your wife, as well as highlighting the sacrifice and dedication it takes to be a mother, is not bigoted," she added. "Someone disagreeing with you doesn't make them hateful; it simply means they have a different opinion."

Given the post's themes of motherhood and faith, fans were quick to connect Shackles Hunt's words to those of Harrison Butker, who, in his commencement address, spoke about his wife, Isabelle, and how she embraced "one of the most important titles of all: homemaker."

Meanwhile, Gracie Hunt was asked about Butker's speech on an episode of " Fox & Friends ."

"I really respect Harrison and his Christian faith and what he's accomplished on and off the field," she said. Hunt also praised her mother's ability to stay home with her and her siblings while they were growing up, but added that "there are many women out there who can't make that decision."

As of February 2024, the Hunt family has a combined net worth of $24.8 billion.

dynasty travel ceo

Per Forbes , the Hunts are the 12th richest family in the US behind other familial dynasties like the Walton family , Mars family , and Cathy family .

An Expedia exec agreed to take the job ‘nobody wanted.’ That helped her become CEO

Ariane Gorin, Expedia CEO.

Good morning, Broadsheet readers! A Rockefeller heir is going after the oil company that made her family a fortune, the gender pay gap is growing among high-paying jobs in the U.K., and Expedia’s new CEO got the top job by taking the one no one wanted. Have a wonderful Wednesday. – Jet set. A decade ago, Ariane Gorin accepted the job no one else wanted. She was a year into working at Expedia, the travel giant. And she agreed to move from Paris to London to lead Expedia’s affiliate network, a nexus of travel partners like the hotels that list bookings on Expedia’s sites. “Nobody else in the company really wanted that job. It wasn’t seen as a great place to be, because everyone wanted to be in the consumer business,” she remembers.

But Gorin turned the role into a surprise cash cow. She asked questions like, “Where is the market opportunity? Where should we go? How do we understand customer needs, and then build solutions for them?” she remembers. What is now called Expedia’s B2B private label business today makes up about one-quarter of the company’s $11.6 billion in annual revenue.

dynasty travel ceo

The leap of faith helped Gorin earn another title: CEO of Expedia, a role she officially began this month. She was promoted to the top job after a decade at the company, most recently as president of Expedia for Business.

B2B travel is no longer seen as an undesirable slice of the industry to be in. But now that Gorin is in a new role, she’s circling back to where everyone wanted to be a decade ago, and doubling down on Expedia’s consumer business, the travel-booking products from Expedia to VRBO that the company is best known for.

She says that earning a CEO job as an internal candidate gives her an advantage to execute on her goals, which in addition to growing the consumer business include incorporating AI into the travel booking experience, and diving into Expedia’s marketing—including a partnership with Netflix capitalizing on the growing popularity of TV show-inspired vacations. Her other priority? Getting used to shopping in American grocery stores again after moving to Seattle following more than 20 years in Europe.

The job makes Gorin one of the 10% of Fortune 500 CEOs who are women. “I’m conscious that there aren’t as many female CEOs running Fortune 500 companies,” she says, “which means that people are looking to us even more to be role models.”
