MD Ashley Toft departs Explore Worldwide

Managing director Ashley Toft has left  adventure tour operator Explore Worldwide.

Toft left the business for “personal reasons” and plans to take a new career opportunity elsewhere.

John Telfer, Explore’s product and operations director for the last ten years, has been appointed as interim managing director with immediate effect.

Having started his adventure travel career as a tour leader with the company 30 years ago, Telfer has worked in all areas of the business, has visited 120 countries and is a sustainability enthusiast.

“Our aim at Explore has always been to enrich lives through adventure travel and this has always been my personal mantra,” he said. “I look forward to leading our team in Farnborough and all our overseas partners and staff to continued success, with exciting growth plans for 2018 with 60 new trips recently launched ranging from Kazakhstan to Kalimantan.”
