I joined ITC in the summer of 2009 following other finance roles in travel and retail businesses. Travel has always been a passion of mine since I went backpacking around the US whilst at University and a particular highlight remains the 3-month round-the-world trip (I know! We managed to fit a lot in a short space of time) that my girlfriend (now wife!) and I embarked on in 2003; not quite the luxury that we sell but in parts it came close. Kayaking down the Amazon and driving our motorhome around New Zealand are still highlights to this day.
Since joining ITC I've been responsible for various departments across the business (including IT, Aviation, Systems and HR) as well as Finance so it's been a widely varied role which I've really enjoyed and I've learned an enormous amount. I've even been lucky enough to visit some of the hotels we feature in our brochures which has been an unexpected bonus. I'm constantly overwhelmed by the professionalism and passion that our teams bring to their roles and was very proud when ITC was recognised as one of the Best Companies to work for in 2012 and now again in 2013. It seems we've started something which I hope will endure.
