The Travel Insider Episode 9: Conversation With Dan Sullivan CEO of Collette

Dan Sullivan has been in the travel industry for more than 35 years. He is the CEO of Collette (most of you probably know of them as Collette Vacations). Read more about Dan’s background on the Collette website here. We had a chance to interview Dan in our first phone interview since Collette is based in Rhode Island. During the interview, we learned about Collette’s nonprofit arm Collette Foundation which is dedicated to giving back to children in communities around the world. We learned about Dan’s favorite travel memories such as bungee jumping in New Zealand.
