Robyn Nixon

General Manager, The Intrepid Foundation
Robyn's career path has been anything but conventional. After working professionally in theatre for 14 years she entered the travel industry in 1991. She and a friend started a small group adventure travel company taking travelers to India. It was here that she met Darrell Wade, Co-founder of Intrepid Travel, who convinced Robyn to leave New Zealand and work for Intrepid in Melbourne.

During her 18 years with Intrepid Robyn has headed up International Business Development, Global Sales and Marketing, Commercial, and as General Manager of Peregrine, People and Sustainability. She also spearheaded the work which lead to Intrepidgroup winning 2 DFAT(BPP) supported projects in association with AVI in Myanmar and WWF in Nepal. This diverse experience means she is well equipped to take up the newly created position of General Manager for the Intrepidgroup’s philanthropic arm, The Intrepid Foundation.

Over the past 2 years Robyn has directed her focus to providing a clear strategic direction around sustainability, shared value and partnerships for the group. Using this experience she hopes to provide a new era for the Foundation driving sustainable outcomes and greater impact for communities.

Robyn is currently in EMEA as Interim MD for Intrepid Travel.
