Visionaries? Entrepreneurs? Bold leaders that go where no other small company will venture? Or travel enthusiasts who still firmly believe that the provision of personalised service and product knowledge adds enormous value to their customer’s booking process and travel experience? We’re a bit of all these things.

Margie Lee-Fong

A Company Founder and Overseer of all things to do with Reservations

Margie - Director - Island Escapes

The ultimate diplomat and staff trainer, Margie looks after her Reservations department with a fair hand and enormous pride. She is the keeper of the knowledge of all things pertaining to Fiji and Thailand and there is no problem she cannot solve. She is also our social media guru with her finger in many online pies.

Marilyn Lynch

A Company Founder and Overseer of all things behind the scenes

Marilyn - Director - Island Escapes

Our brochures, web travel blogs, accounts, Company admin and all things South Pacific product related sit in Marilyn’s busy in tray. It’s a mixed bag that keeps her on her toes but (between you and me) she loves the daily challenges her many different hats bring. Her role is many things, but boring isn’t one of them.

Farid Hacene

Our Sales & Marketing Guru and Overseer of all things to do with our digital marketing

Farid Hacene - National Marketing Manager

With more years marketing experience than he cares to admit, Farid joined Island Escapes in 2014 and took our rather ad hoc approach to marketing and turned it into a lean machine that bats well above its weight. He works closely with all our industry partners to ensure that the Island Escapes brand continues to go from strength to strength

Angie Devine

A Company Founder (now retired and enjoying the good life)

Angie - Director - Island Escapes

After 14 years of sales calls, trade shows, functions, famils, promotional activity and hard work, Angie has decided to retire and pursue her other interests. Angie, tireless efforts both on the road and in the office, have seen Island Escapes grow from 3 staff to 20, and from being a start up business to having a preferred agency network of over 400 of Australia’s best Travel Agencies – many of whom she now considers to be good friends.
