Ben Jones, Head of Sales & Marketing

BIOGRAPHY

Ben joined the team in 2018 to take on the sales and marketing mantle. Having previously worked in the yacht and ski world, travel is in his blood. A self-confessed “fraud” of the office, he holds no world records nor can he claim any dazzling achievements the likes of which his colleagues have in abundance, but he does make a lovely brew.

With experience in taking brands from start-up phase and upwards, Ben will be aiming to piggyback on the incredible momentum IGO has generated so far and use it to slingshot it to the highest peaks.

Key piece of advice for anyone going on an IGO:

Wear sunscreen. But really, I would bring ear plugs to get a good night’s sleep. There are all sorts of rumblings at night when camping.

Best place you’ve ever been:

New Zealand. You have every landscape imaginable – rainforest, alpine mountains, stunning white sand beaches, volcanoes and gently rolling hills. If that’s not enough to drink in they have plenty of vineyards too…

Best IGO memory:

The alarm clock on our inaugural Scotland event in May 2018… a bagpiper filling the glen in which our campsite was nestled with his dulcet tones at 6 am.
