Mark Cromhout | Operations Manager

My love for travel is what motivated me to join the industry 23 years ago. I have a passion for exploring new places and experiencing new destinations. My bucket list is half completed already, managing to tick off 43 countries and 30 of the 50 States in America so far! I focussed on Leisure travel at 1st, sending people to all the places I wanted to see and some that I had already visited. I now do a balance between corporate and leisure bookings. I enjoy working with clients and fellow staff members to ensure a great travel experience is had by all. In addition to consulting, I am also the Operations Manager at Tripos Travel where I lead our team of highly trained and experienced travel professionals to provide an unforgettable experience to our clients. Away from work, I am an outdoors lover and enjoy hiking and mountain climbing whenever I get the chance. I also enjoy running most weekends and completed a few road races!

Ingrid Carelse | Tours Manager

I am married with 2 wonderful children. I have been part of the Tripos family since 1997. My journey at Tripos Travel started at Reception and in 1999, I completed my Galileo course and assisted with issuing of domestic tickets. A year later, an opportunity opened in the Inbound Tours division, which I was happy to accept. I have been enjoying my time here ever since. The Tours division primarily served the incoming French and UK markets. I gradually started developing my own programmes for clients and progressed to manage the day to day running of the office. Today we service clients from all over the world, tailor making packages to meet their needs. In 2008 we started promoting and selling travel packages to the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, the 4th biggest music festival in the world & the largest in Africa. I always enjoy return business and this gives me a sense of satisfaction that my services rendered have met or exceeded my clients’ expectations. This client satisfaction is what keeps me motivated in my job.

I started working with an airline in 2004 where I was part of the ground operations teams working in different departments, then moved to an online travel agency in 2013 where I moved through various departments of their operations. I felt it was time for a change and doing something different then joined the Tripos Travel team in 2017 as a corporate consultant.  Back Office / Operations and Customer service is a strong part of my experience which makes it so much easier assisting our team where need be. As a mom of 3 beautiful children free time consist of family time exploring what our wonderful city and country has to offer.

The travel bug bit over 20 years ago when I joined the industry as a junior corporate consultant. I have since gained experience in domestic and international travel for both the leisure and corporate market specializing in groups, events, conferencing and sports travel. I am lucky enough to have friends and family spread across the globe and have therefore had the opportunity to travel to some very beautiful parts of the world. I have two boys that have their mother’s love of travel and have been lucky enough to experience both local and international destinations. Travel feeds the soul and teaches us about the beautiful country and world we live in. I am proud to be apart of the Tripos Travel team in this very special and unique industry!
