Young gets new role

Adventure World has appointed Caryn Young, who celebrated her 10th year with the company in March, to the newly created role of head of operations.

Auckland-based Young’s new management role will see her looking after the day-to-day operations of Adventure World’s various departments, with a particular focus on product and wholesale operations. She is currently the company’s Africa product manager and has enjoyed a wide and varied 27-year career in the travel industry, across both retail and wholesale, before joining Adventure World in 2007. ‘Fuelling my passion for Africa in the product team has been fantastic, but I’m looking forward to having a more active role in guiding Adventure World through its next exciting chapter,’ Young says.
