Craig Burton

Managing Director, Ski Solutions

Craig has 16 years’ experience in the travel sector, the last seven of these spent as Managing Director of winter-sports and activities operator, Ski Solutions. Craig has led two PE backed management buyouts, the first of which was in 2010 to acquire the business from the original founder. Having acquired niche activities operators, Bspoke Tours and Cycling for Softies, this was followed in August 2017 by a £6m secondary MBO backed by Mobeus Equity Partners to support further growth, both organically and through further M&A within the activity and adventure segment.

Most recently, Craig and the team have secured £3m of follow-on funding from Mobeus in September 2018 to facilitate the buyout of Highlands-based adventure operator Wilderness Scotland. Craig heads up the newly formed Active Travel Group with combined group sales of £28m, bringing together a team of 75 outdoors and mountain travel professionals looking after over 20,000 clients across its five brands.
