Nancy W. Dunn,  Founder
Nancy Dunn has grown a strong, experienced travel agency team, many of whom have been with the company for 15 years or more. This has allowed Aladdin Travel to offer an exceptionally high level of service.  Nancy is active in community affairs and is a past president of the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce, Rotary and the Winston-Salem Piedmont Triad Symphony as well as a number of other community organizations.  She has served on the NCDOT board for the past 8+ years, and is on BB&T’s Local Winston-Salem Advisory Board.  Nancy is actively involved in the long-range planning strategies of the company and Aladdin's clients’ travel management needs.  During her almost 40 years in the travel industry, Nancy has literally traveled the globe.  Her daughters often traveled with her so it’s no surprise that Catherine and Emily are today involved in planning meetings and group tours for Aladdin clients.  Among her favorite destinations are Italy and Israel. or (336) 499-6701.
