Meet the Team

Pete Mathers

Senior Account Manager

What I have done…
Before joining Hills Balfour I worked for eight years as Marketing Communications Manager for WEXAS Travel, responsible for its print and online marketing. I have extensive copywriting and editing experience, a good understanding of the travel industry – particularly of the luxury and tailor-made sectors – and have worked closely with a wide range of hotels, airlines, tour operators and tourist boards. I have also written for a number of travel publications, including British Airways’ High Life magazine, the travel supplement at The Times, Traveller magazine and The Traveller’s Handbook.

What I do now…
I joined Hills Balfour in December 2014 as UK Media Executive for the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, based at its ever-so-smart office in No. 1 Knightsbridge!

What I do for fun…
I’ve an incurable appetite for travel. I’ve been to 48 countries across six different continents yet the urge to explore grows year after year. Highlights have included Indonesia (where I’ve a small plot of land on a traffic-free island called Gili Trawangan), Ethiopia, Cameroon, Tonga, Chile, New Zealand, the Seychelles, Kosovo and the Swiss Alps. Other interests include hiking, history, literature and food (I make a mean lettuce soup!).

What I bring to Hills Balfour…
Editorial, marketing and management experience, a detailed knowledge of the travel industry, an excellent eye for detail and a hunger to learn and improve. I also hope I bring a good sense of humour and perhaps even a spot of banter… do people still say that?
