Hi Guys, how did you get into the travel industry?
Simon – I came into the travel industry straight from school, initially working for a software company who supplied an airfares database to the travel industry. They had an in-house travel agency and I soon realised I enjoyed helping people find their perfect holiday far more rewarding than the technology side of the industry and haven’t looked back since.
Spencer – I was always obsessed with travel and holidays and knew I wanted a career in the industry just didn’t know where to start. A chance conversation with someone led to me to join a new Lunn Poly store in Fulham in the early 90’s and went from there, I took to sales quite quickly but always had a plan to move into the product and commercial area of the industry, in my head I wanted to get paid to travel and look at hotels and that’s how it turned out to be for a number of years.
