Luke discovered that when you have a passion for travel it is hard to love something else

While COVID may have put a tear in their relationship, Luke quickly discovered that there is nothing quite like your first love (being the travel industry of course).

Luke kicked off his rich incredible FCTG career working as a Consultant at Flight Centre Stud Park in Victoria back in 2012. After quickly finding his groove in the role, Luke moved up into the Assistant Team Leader position within the year before deciding to take the leap and move overseas to London.

While in the UK, Luke’s passion for the travel industry remained strong as he worked for a wholesale travel company selling the Balkan region of Europe.

After his return down under in 2015, Luke entered a similar role in retail before quickly moving to another branch of the FCTG family tree at Infinity Holidays. Working as a consultant for three years with Infinity before eventually stepping up as Assistant Team Leader where he remained for three years, Luke reflects fondly on his time with the brand attending two Global Gathering balls in Hawaii and Las Vegas.

“My favourite FCTG memory was attending the 2019 Global Ball in Vegas with my team as ATL. We made a promise as a team that we would make it and after striving for our goal all year we were so happy when we found out our hard work had paid off. Although we only found out we were going less than two weeks out from the event!” remembers Luke.

Unfortunately, like many of our friends and family in travel, Luke was stood down in March 2020 due to the detrimental effects COVID-19 had on the industry.

“After I left FCTG, I learnt that there are many different industries out there, however, when you have a passion for travel it is hard to love something else,” says Luke.

After not being able to find his spark or passion in other areas, it was a tip from a friend that ultimately led to Luke reuniting with his love for working in travel. FCTG was lucky to welcome back Luke into the business in January 2022 into the Corporate Traveller business.

“The team I am a part of now is what I missed about this company. I was welcomed in like family from the get-go,” says Luke. 

“Corporate Traveller is such an amazing brand to be a part of and cannot can’t wait to see what lies ahead.”
