CHARLIE RIDOUT has more than 25 years experience in the global travel industry in a variety of roles which have led him to start up Complete Travel Marketing.

Charlie’s initial working life started in the UK on the frontline at Europe’s largest independent retailer. Subsequently he ran the sales and product departments at the world’s oldest travel company, implementing new FIT and group programmes to all parts of the globe. Once based in Australia, Charlie has been responsible for procurement and product development across Asia, North America, Fiji and the Pacific Islands. He is well known to many hoteliers across the Asia-Pacific region.
