Hop on, hop off guided travel network has a new leader

Market-leading hop on, hop off guided travel network has a new leader

New Zealand and Southeast Asia’s market-leading hop on, hop off guided travel network, Stray, has a new leader for New Zealand.

Brett Hudson (otherwise known as Taxi) has been appointed as the new Stray General Manager following Heather Bailey’s resignation.

Hudson is a well-established member of the Stray family. He has over 9 years’ experience working with the Stray product and is well-known in the adventure tourism industry.

“Stray is an amazing product,” says Hudson, “I’m really excited for this new opportunity and ready to take on the challenge.”

Going forward, Hudson plans to continue to build upon the already successful base Stray has developed.

“Whether it’s technology, customer service or continuing to build our amazing product; progressive improvement is critical in this industry.”

“We’ll continue to work collectively with Spaceships Global and Stray Asia, and carry on giving our customers an experience that exceeds their expectations and makes them re-evaluate what awesome is.”

Chairman of the Board, Humphry Rolleston, says Hudson’s appointment will ensure that the Stray product gets continuity, as well as a fresh set of eyes for future developments.
