The Leadership Team

John Lyotier

Co-Founder & CEO

Travel makes the world a better place because…
it exposes all involved to new cultures, new ideas, and new possibilities. The world today is too divided, and the best way to bring change to something so immovable is to empower others to travel.

If I could travel anywhere, I would go to…
the Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni (salt flats), preferably just after a rainfall, because there would be something mystical, surreal, and symbolic about being in a place in which the sky and the earth become one. View properties in Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni

A #Leftie Core Value I live by: Make Your Mark
We measure the change we make measured in weeks, months, or years. Yet, in reality, change is hard and takes generations. When we talk about making your mark, we talk about the sometimes unforeseen impact we make in the world around us. This is a mark we make through our families, our employees, our customers, our community, and the physical world. While we cannot always see the mark we make, we owe it to others to try make a mark for good.

Chris Jensen

Co-Founder & COO

Travel makes the world a better place because…
people are just better when they connect.

A #Leftie Core Value I live by: Family is Important
This needs no explanation, it simply is!

Rakib Islam

CTO

Travel makes the world a better place because…
It helps us all to discover that people are the same everywhere. We care about the same things; we want the same things for our families; we have the same fears and desires.

If I could travel anywhere, I would go to…
The Azores, because I went there for a wedding and fell in love with the beauty of the islands and the friendliness of the people. View properties in Azores.

A #Leftie Core Value I live by: Quality Education
Being able to access a quality education gives a person the chance to be the best they can be, conversely a lack of education creates barriers, reduces opportunities and perpetuates inequality.

Simon Jones

CFO

Travel makes the world a better place because…
the exposure to different people and ways of life broadens one’s perspectives and contributes to intercultural understanding, tolerance, respect and peace.

Joe Deobald

Entrepreneur in Residence

Travel makes the world a better place because…
it opens up your eyes to knowledge and experiences you just can’t get at home. It allows you to experience new tastes, new sights and activities, and really connects you with others on a global scale. Getting out of your bubble and experiencing the true wonders of the world allows you to get a new perspective on what it means to be human.

If I could travel anywhere, I would go to…
Japan because their attention to detail, the history and culture, and the people are amazing, and I’d love to experience their way of life. View properties in Japan

A #Leftie Core Value I live by: Impact Your Community
I define community as anyone and anywhere, and if I can influence an action or spark an idea that can impact someone’s life or better a situation – whether it’s today, tomorrow or 10 years from now – I know that I’ve made an impact.
