Mauritz Minny is an accomplished entrepreneur with a distinctive track record of success in the leisure and travel industries.
Over the past two decades he established and grew some of the country’s leading tour agencies specialising in the fields of educational, heritage and sports travels to and from South Africa.
In his youth he excelled in a range of competitive sports gaining national colours in both wrestling and cross country. He took this dedication and commitment to excellence into the business environment when he entered the travel industry in 1999 after completing a B Com-degree in Sports Management at the University of Pretoria.
He founded Trendsetter Travels in 2008 and, in the ensuing years, built this business into one of the most recognised names in the travel industry. The agency specialised in the organisation of youth and school tours for various sporting codes and leisure activities.
It subsequently expanded its focus to offer cultural and academic enrichment tours to a wide range of destinations in Western Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia.
Mauritz’s most recent enterprise, Time Travel Global, was established in 2019. In addition to the regular range of educational tours it offers youth groups abroad opportunities to participate in social responsibility activities within communities in South Africa.
