DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 1, 2021--

Today Dahlgren Duck, the leading name in global luxury hospitality goods and services, announced they are combining with Ski and Sea International.

The company, with offices in Dallas, Denver, Montreal and London, will continue to serve multiple verticals globally within vacation ownership and rentals, membership destination clubs, hotels and resorts, luxury residential homes and developments, super yachts and private aviation.


The companies will offer an expanded portfolio of products including housewares, tabletop items, china, crystal, flatware, linens, accessories, furniture and lighting. Bespoke services will be available for all categories.

Common to the companies is the idea that anticipatory, personalized service is paramount to building solid business relationships.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining forces with the amazing Ski & Sea team and have the privilege and honor to be part of this great brand going forward. We believe with our combined teams, products and services there isn’t anyone else in the industry that will be able to offer the service and value our combined groups bring,” said Scott Ritter, Managing Partner and CEO of Dahlgren Duck.

“Our cultures mesh perfectly. We both put our clients at the center of what we do every day. This perfect alliance is a way to give our clients greater range and resources while maintaining the fabulous staff and personalized service they’ve come to know. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Dahlgren Duck,” said Jennifer Miner, Chief Development Officer for the new combined company.

Part of the deal includes Inventory Smart, Ski and Sea’s subsidiary company. Inventory Smart is an item inventory management system designed to make it easy to track on-hand inventory at any hotel property and resort. This tool adds value for both Ski and Sea and Dahlgren Duck clients as well as anyone in the hospitality, yachting and aviation industries. But because Inventory Smart is so versatile, it can also be of benefit in other areas such as entertainment venues, property management services and healthcare.

The integration of Dahlgren Duck and Ski and Sea is expected to be completed by the end of December 2021.
