The Team

Paul Mercuri - Founder and Managing Director

After a quick, back-of-a-napkin calculation, Paul thinks he has helped Aussie travellers save over $75 million dollars over the last decade. His goal at Traveldream is to top that, and help people save over $1 billion! A lofty goal indeed, but he believes it possible. Paul has plenty of experience, and has previously held positions at Kogan, Travelzoo, Ourdeal.com.au, News Corp and Fairfax. A European destination specialist, his favourite place in the world is Positano, on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. When he's not negotiating travel deals, he is on adventures with his wife and daughter, and his most recent overseas trip was the west coast of France. He is also into Muay Thai and Taekwondo.

 

 

Shauna Callaghan - Online Travel Specialist 

Shauna is always chasing that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Originally from Ireland, she loves the 'craic agus ceoil'. With an early start in hospitality, Shauna went on to study tourism, which led her to working abroad in France and learning a new language before making the big trip down under and travelling around the country in a van, working along the way. She is always dreaming of her next adventure, and has her sights set on a trip to Asia.

Shauna has always been passionate about tourism and loves helping travellers book their perfect trip. She is also helping out with the marketing side of things, and is a dab hand at analytics. Currently, Shauna is living in the city of Melbourne, with her partner and adorable puppy Jas.

Kristen Delugar - Product Specialist

Kristen is originally from New Zealand (and has recently gone back, to be closer to family), and has been living her dream selling travel for the past 10 years! A keen adventurer, some of her trips have included camping under the stars in the desert of Oman, rooftop yoga on the helipad of Loews Hollywood Hotel and off-roading in San Luis Obispo. Kristen joined the Travel Industry to help customers experience the world differently, and is passionate about seeking out the best experiences for you at the best prices. She is a cruise expert, and one of our customer service superstars.

With a love of culture and traditional food, Kristen is hoping to get to India for her next adventure. 

 

Paul 

Paul Schultz - Product Manager

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

 

Jenna Rank - Digital Marketing Manager

Melbourne born and bred, Jenna is lucky enough to live in the beautiful Yarra Valley. During uni, she lived in the UK and to date has visited over 50 countries across Europe, the USA, central America, South East Asia and the Pacific (don't ask her which one is her favourite, she can't choose). Next up: Japan, South America and Canada.

Jenna has worked in travel for many years, first as a travel agent, then for an Aussie travel website before coming over to the Traveldream team. When she's not busy playing with pretty travel pictures (aka working), she is hiking, gardening, doing crafty things or - no surprises here - planning her next trip.
