While some people spend their whole lives dreaming of becoming a star, others make it happen in addition to enjoying meaningful careers. This is Colin Hunter’s story; a singer who soared to new heights in his business career and now shines brightly in the entertainment industry.
By day, Colin Hunter is the Founder, Chairman of the board and Owner of Sunwing Travel Group, one of the largest leisure travel companies in North America. With over 40 years of expertise in the travel industry, Colin and his son Stephen were named Entrepreneurs of the Year in 2007 and 2009 in the Hospitality/Tourism category.
By night, Colin quenches his thirst for music. He is a huge fan of 50’s jazz and pop standards made popular by crooners such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and Tony Bennett. And in 2005, Colin Hunter makes his longtime dream come true with the release of his first CD, Come Fly With Me, a feat deserving of his entrepreneurial aspirations and recorded with a 16-piece big band, the Starlight Orchestra.
