Dave, out trekkingWeb Sales

Joined Exodus in: 2005
David once bought a one way ticket to Mumbai and a year later found himself in Beijing via 5 legged cows, moped crashes and a hitch with a wanted criminal. Along the way he met rock stars, international footballers and loads of monks. Nowadays, if he's not at his Sales desk, he can be found on the top of mountains or cross-country skiing in one of the many great destinations Exodus offers. He's hurtled out of control on skis into a tree, bagged Kilimanjaro and Toubkal, done the Moonstone Trek and most recently completed the Mont Blanc Circuit.

Expert in: Asia, Kilimanjaro, Peru, the Alps, Morocco and cross-country skiing.

Natalie in MexicoSales Consultant

Joined Exodus in: 2011

She made her way to the Exodus sales team after travelling overland from Costa Rica to LA and living in New Zealand.

Brendan on trekHead of Operations

Joined Exodus in: 2003
Growing up in a flat part of Ireland wasn't the most obvious starting point for a love of mountains and travel, but it's something which has been with Brendan since he first made it to Nepal 15 years ago. These days, he still tries to squeeze in a yearly trip to some corner of the globe but managing both the Customer Operations team and a young family (not at the same time) keep his hands pretty full!

Expert in: Central Asia, India, Vietnam, Nepal, Tibet, Ethiopia, Venezuela.

Andy's bear encounterSenior Product Manager

Joined Exodus in: 2000
A love of cycling from an early age meant that Andy was always destined to travel. This began with cycling to and from school, followed by a misspent youth racing BMX bikes. The distances have increased a little since then, culminating with two 4000+ mile rides around the States and Mexico. Five years leading cycling, trekking and snowshoe trips for Exodus enabled him to travel much further afield and this experience is put to good use in his current role managing the short haul Product team.

Expert in: Cycling, Winter Activities, Eastern Europe
