‘We are continually looking to provide opportunities to like minded industry people who are wanting to work with one of the most supportive, if not a little quirky, travel businesses in the country,’ McKay says. He recalls himself and Andrew Parke starting in September 2013 in a room above a garage in Mt Wellington. ‘We’re now one of the top producing World Traveller stores,’ he says. McKay points out that travel industry identity Graeme Moore has a share in Fuzion, providing an integral governance role and strategic direction. ‘We’re definitely a broker business (we call them affiliates) with strength in Auckland where the affiliates can come and go as they please – have a desk and work as a team with no cost to them,’ says McKay. ‘Our other main hub is Queenstown, where we work with Toby Stanton and his Frankton team brokering through us.’ McKay says Fuzion is looking for more affiliates. ‘We’ll take people from anywhere – Kaitaia to Bluff.’
