Paul Schultz - Product Manager

After spending the first few decades of his life growing up in the turquoise waters of the Whitsundays followed by many years of travelling, living and working overseas, Paul was always destinated to be in the travel industry. He thrives on creating new and excting travel experiences for people to enjoy while making long lasting memories with family and friends. When he's not in the office, his weekends usually involve driving his kids around to sporting events in his FUber - the free Uber! Other than that, you'll find him on some mountain bike trail enjoying the outdoors with a splash of adrenaline!




 Yim Kitiphong - Head of Sales (Asia) 

Yim (or you could try using his full Thai name if you have few minutes) was born & raised in the city of Angels. Yeah! Bangkok. A city guy who doesn’t eat veggies but has an interest in meditation for peace of mind. Although he’s travelled to over 30 countries, a stamp from any of the countries in the Americas is still missing from his passport. It might be due to his stingy nature. Yim & his wife would always search for the best deals (whether they exist or not) around the world when planning each trip. He thinks it’s time to use his 15 years' experience in travel to reveal those unbelievable deals to others that love discovering the world without feeling guilty. His next mission isn't necessarily travelling somewhere, but to create a Facebook or Instagram account so he doesn't keep all of his travel snaps to himself (seriously?!).
