John Coutts
Destination Specialist | 1991

Born in Christchurch, I started work with the New Zealand Tourism Department in 1979 (now known as Tourism New Zealand), then moved to Sydney for two years to work in the local NZTO travel office, before my OE to London for a couple of years where I temped for a local tour operator. I started with what eventually became Southern World in 1991. I enjoy mountain biking, camping, fishing, the odd beer and BBQ with friends and family.
