Nick Baker: CEO

A business leader with almost two decades experience in the tourism industry, Nick Baker specialises in marketing and digital strategy for both long-term growth and meeting immediate business goals. 

Following seven highly successful years as Chief Marketing Officer of Tourism Australia, Nick brings a host of relevant and game-changing experience to RedBalloon. During his time with TA, Nick and his team were responsible for three of the company’s most successful global campaigns and one of the world’s most effective social media marketing campaigns.

Nick was awarded the 2013 ADMA marketer of the year and was recently honoured with the AMI 2014 marketer of the year.

Simon Farrell: CTO

Simon Farrell is not your ordinary Chief Technology officer, nor does he lead an ordinary IT team. With an affable personality and endearing sense of humour, Simon brings a spark and fun attitude to the too often mundane and jargon-driven world of information technology. But this easy-going nature is no reflection on his passion and skill in this fast-paced and ever changing world. Simon is passionate and experienced in implementing big business capability within small business environments, and has a flair for software design, development and delivery. With over 13 years commercial Internet experience in Australia and internationally, Simon’s strong technical background combined with management skills help to ensure projects are delivered with a high degree of quality and innovation, along with his trademark passion and enthusiasm.

Roz Hogan: Head of Customer Experience

Currently on maternity leave

Roslyn is seasoned customer service leader who champions the needs of her team as much as she does the needs of the customer. Over the past few years, RedBalloon “Roz” has heralded a number of changes within the Customer Happiness team, ingraining a sales culture that has become second-nature, and for the first time formalising measurement of the true customer experience via a structured Net Promoter Score (NPS) System. Roz knows happy employees go the extra mile for their customers and happy customers are the best brand advocates a business can have. And that’s the attitude that guides her every day in her pursuit for customer service excellence.
