Jayne O'Gorman Managing Director
“Travelling has always been my life and my great passion, I’m extremely fortunate in being able to work with like-minded people, people who live and breathe travel too: our partners, with whom we work so closely to create the prefect experiences for our clients.”
Edward Leigh Chairman
“I always wanted to run a business which retained a friendly, family-feel, and crucially to find a team of specialists, each with an in-depth knowledge and passion for a particularly part of the world."
Anna Baccanello Agency Sales Director
"My amazing job has enabled me to travel to the most beautiful places in the world in Azure style and I have experience so much which I would never have had the opportunity to do any other way.”
Mandy Davies Commercial Director
“I’m passionate about travel and I love knowing destinations inside out, finding out what people want and then crafting an itinerary to give them a perfect holiday. I enjoy the whole process so much. ”
Claire Metharam Head of Product
“For me the most magical place on earth is the Maldives, and I love these islands for many of the same reasons I also love being part of the Azure family. As well as being paradise on earth, the Maldives is such a friendly and relaxed place to visit, and Azure is a very friendly and relaxed place to work.”
Laura Gould Agency Sales Co-Ordinator
"It’s so true what they say. Travel really does broaden your mind and outlook on life and it’s also incredibly enjoyable. I love trying out new food and wine. That’s a real highlight for me."
Julie Crump Specialist Sales Consultant
“I love travelling and finding new destinations for the Azure Collection, and then putting together tailor made itineraries. No two people are the same so no two travel plans should ever be the same and it’s so satisfying to find the perfect holiday for each client.”
Jessica Jones Specialist Sales Consultant
“Travel makes me realise how small the world is now. It’s all so accessible, and what I love most is meeting with locals and listening to their stories. It’s the best way to really get to know a place and I really like being able to share these insights with Azure’s clients.”
Paul Jones Specialist Sales Consultant
“I love discovering off the beaten track destinations and gathering plenty of first-hand experience which I can then share with clients and use to develop tailor made holidays that promise extraordinary experiences.”
Tracy Squires Specialist Sales Consultant
"I love my job! The best thing about it is using my knowledge and own experiences to turn peoples’ dreams into reality and make special memories."
Nina Lloyd Specialist Sales Consultant
“It’s so important to have special memories, and luxury holidays provide the perfect opportunity, so I feel very privileged to be able to help people to create these moments to treasure for the rest of their lives.”
Alex Higgins Specialist Sales Consultant
"I’ve spent six years in the travel industry, but travel has been in my life for so much longer. I’ve always been passionate about it so Azure is the perfect place to work because everyone is so enthusiastic about travelling."
Lizzy Watts Specialist Sales Consultant
"I think I was excited by the idea of travelling from the minute I was born. It opens your eyes and it’s so exciting to be able to help others to find their own personal, life-changing journeys."
Gary Aplin Agency Sales Manager - North - Midlands
“I am the envy of all my friends: I get to do what I love for a living and travel to the most amazing destinations around the world. As well as working with one of the most knowledgeable and friendly teams in the industry, I am honoured and privileged to call our Agent partners friends.”
Geraldine Perrier Agency Sales Manager - South
“"I have been very lucky to find a job which enables me to explore the world and share it with like minded people. I was born in Mauritius so I am a little biased when it comes to home as a destination.”
Jo Abbott Specialist Sales Consultant
“"It’s so important to have special memories, and luxury holidays provide the perfect opportunity, so I feel very privileged to be able to help people to create these moments to treasure for the rest of their lives."”
Louise Seymour Specialist Sales Consultant
“"I was so happy to join the Azure family because it’s such a lovely, friendly place to work and everyone loves travel as much as I do. What I especially love is the chance to tailor make individual holidays for people and then hear their fantastic stories about how they’ve had a once in a lifetime experience."”
Charlie Top Dog
"My favourite destinations are on my Mum’s lap and running along the River Dee in Chester chasing the pigeons and Squirrels that I meet on the way!"
