This is Brett Mitchell, Intrepid’s new Managing Director ANZ

You probably already know him because he’s been with Intrepid for more than decade, most recently as Chief Sales Officer.


Hiring internally means that the company can tap into Mitchell’s knowledge and expertise as it rebuilds the region to pre-pandemic levels.



“[Brett’s] operational expertise and knowledge, along with his tenure within our business, allows him to lead our team with clear direction and will play a pivotal role in delivering sustainable and responsible travel experiences across Australia and New Zealand,” Intrepid CEO James Thornton said. 


So what will Mitchell be doing? As well as overseeing Intrepid’s direct and industry sales and marketing strategies in Australia and New Zealand, he’ll leading the development of Intrepid’s local investment companies including Haka, ANZ Tours, JOOB and CABN and will sit on the Chimu board.


“I am very pleased to take on the role of Managing Director ANZ, where we are well positioned to grow with purpose, through our vertically integrated business, here in Australia and New Zealand” says Mitchell.


“It is my firm view that we are still in the early stages of a significant growth period in sustainable travel and I look forward to working with all of our partners to grow this category and ensure Intrepid’s ongoing leadership in this space.”


Mitchell will take the reigns from outgoing Sarah Clark who will take on a new role in her home state as CEO at Tourism Tasmania.


Clark will remain at Intrepid until mid-November.
