Rosie Simpson

My childhood summers were spent scrambling up mountains in the Lake District and sailing around the Mediterranean. These seminal experiences sparked my passion for discovering different cultures, landscapes and wildlife, and eventually led me to study geography at the University of Nottingham.

Since I finished my degree, I have been fortunate to travel widely across five continents. Some highlights include hiking to the top of a glacial lake on Mt. Cook in New Zealand; swimming alongside whale sharks in Mexico and accompanying an anti-poaching patrol whilst working on a game reserve in South Africa. I had caught the travel bug.

Determined to combine my studies and passion I sought a career in Travel, starting out in Marketing at Maybourne Hotel Group (owners of three luxury London hotels including the iconic Claridge’s, the Berkeley and the Connaught) and then later moving to the globally renowned Virgin brand determined to develop and learn best in class customer experience. I am now fortunate to work at Black Tomato, leading the Client Relations team. I feel privileged to be working for such a dynamic luxury brand, speaking directly with our clients and hearing their personal travel experiences. These help us to constantly evolve our offering as we strive to create the ultimate customer experience for our clients.

My parents first taught me the magic of travel and adventure. Today I work at Black Tomato because I want to share that magic with other people.
