DMC exceeds pre-Covid growth after successfully securing a wealth of multimillion pound contracts.
AC Group, a leading provider of exceptional travel experiences, announce the appointment of Dermott O’Neill as the company’s Managing Director for their newly created Irish division. This significant milestone has been made possible by the successful procurement of a number of multibillion pound contracts secured over the last six months.
Esteemed industry veteran O’Neill brings a wealth of experience and expertise having been part of Abbey Tours Ireland & UK for over fourteen years. As well as leading the expansion in Ireland, Dermott O’Neill will also be responsible for collaborating with key executives to drive growth in the UK and French markets, significantly enhancing AC Tours’ presence in these regions.
AC Group has achieved a remarkable post-Covid recovery by placing a strong emphasis on service excellence and forging robust partnerships. In working closely with their partners, AC Group has successfully delivered tailor-made trips for both groups and individual travellers, with a particular focus on catering to the needs of high end clientele.
The company has also refined its business focus to exclusively serve the UK, Ireland and French market. Operations have been streamlined in order to dedicate resources and expertise to activities that deliver maximum returns to all partners. This sharp focus enables AC Group to maintain a competitive edge and establish themselves as the go-to provider for luxury travel experiences within the UK. .
Owner Rob Russell says “We are delighted that the business is now thriving after facing such challenging times during Covid. We made the strategic choice to close AC Online in 2020, which accounted for almost 50% of our revenue at the time. It’s testament to the outstanding dedication shown by our team that we’re now on track to finish this year at 90% of the levels we saw in 2019 from the combined revenue of AC Tours and AC Luxe! It’s an exceptional performance from the remaining business operations and has been driven by an unwavering commitment to offer outstanding service through our tailor-made trips.”
Russell continues “We are also really pleased to welcome Dermott O’Neill as the Managing Director of our newly-launching Irish division. His extensive experience in business development and deep understanding of the industry make him the ideal candidate for this role. We are confident that Dermott’s leadership will contribute significantly to our continued success.”
AC Group’s commitment to delivering outstanding travel experiences is underscored by their meticulous attention to detail, personalised service and extensive network of trusted partners. With a focus on customer satisfaction and a passion for creating unforgettable memories, AC Group remain at the forefront of the industry.
