Ileen Baiden

Product and Marketing
Ileen has worked in the Product department since she joined in 1992, and throughout that time she has seen huge changes in everything from the size of the company to the introduction of computer records. She originally trained as a police officer, but soon found that it was not the career for her and defected to the travel industry. Here, she has been able to indulge her love of Latin American culture and on her travels has fallen in love with Brazil, Costa Rica and the Galápagos amongst other destinations. Some of her favourite moments from these trips include jungle trekking, white-water rafting, and she also loves the musical beat of countries like Cuba and Mexico. 

Outside of work, Ileen takes a very active role in her local church by teaching at Sunday School, acting as a fundraising treasurer and even writing a magazine; and as if that was not enough to keep her busy, Ileen is also learning Swahili!

My favourite place in Latin America

Visiting the Galápagos Islands was an unbelievable experience, from cruising on clear starry nights to visiting lava fields, tropical forests and mangroves and swimming with seals and turtles. I would love to return to this magical place one day.
