CEO Quintessentially Lifestyle & Travel Group
With over 20 years travel experience, Ian has a wealth of expertise in the luxury travel sector and has visited every continent many times. He has organised many travel experiences for people in the music and entertainment business and captains of industry, all discerning travellers, who have a passion for the finer things in life. There is never any dust on Ian's passport, as he likes to jet off with his family, or for business - his favourite destination by far is Iceland; in contrast, the exotic destinations of Singapore and Hong Kong hold a special place in his heart. Out of work, Ian enjoys visiting Le Mans for the 24 hour race and of course imbibing in a glass or two of fine wine and good food! He is a Land Rover off-road enthusiast and is known to have at least six of them over recent years.
Business Development Director
Born and bred in the Emerald Isle, Jenny started her career in event management and PR specialising in international real estate, before being lured into the world of travel at Quintessentially, to head up business development and affinity partnerships for the Travel Group. A serial jetsetter who is most at home exploring faraway lands, Jenny's passion for travel has taken her far and wide - so whether it be ice climbing the Franz Joseph Glacier, working with the big 5 in South Africa, climbing Kilimanjaro, canoeing across Scotland, sky diving in Hawaii, basking in the sun in Zanzibar or sailing in Ibiza, Jenny is always on the lookout for her next adventure.... and business opportunity.
With over 10 years of corporate finance experience, Adamâ€™s previous position as the Financial Manager at a private game reserve in South Africa confirmed his passion for the travel, tourism and hospitality industry. Adam's love of travel has taken him to the far corners of the globe. If he is not in the office, then you will find him on the golf course or on safari somewhere in Africa.
Marketing & Communications Manager
Felicity's predisposition towards travel is unsurprising considering her personal gene pool of English, Russian and Irish blood. Lying on a beach holds no appeal while off-roading and the possibility of adventure certainly does! This ethos dominated her seven month gap year with a four month backpacking trip in South America followed by extreme sports in New Zealand! It is tempting to revisit the places you have fallen in love with but with so much to explore, she resists that temptation and always travels to new locations, so India is the next big trip on her list.
Product & Events Executive, Quintessentially Villas
Travel has always been an interest that lies close to Francesca's heart. She have travelled across the globe, exploring different cultures and foreign lands. Her firm favourite remains my family's homeland of Italy - the good food and coffee playing huge factors in this. Other interests include cycling, or anything 'outdoorsy' (she is not one for lying in the sun) and of course her dogs.
