Kerry Tate

Director of Product and Operations
Topdeck Tours

With an impressive career spanning nearly 15 years in the travel industry, Kerry Tate has flown the flag for Australian youth travel both at home and abroad, and is equally passionate and motivated to see the market reach new heights.

Having been actively involved with some of Australasia’s most iconic youth travel brands throughout his career, Kerry has worked across the accommodation, travel retail, and tour operations sectors.

In 2010, Kerry joined the ranks at Topdeck Travel, charged with launching the brand’s Australasian touring programme into the post-arrival market. With Kerry at the helm, the focus was on building strategic distribution partnerships, and in a short timespan, this region quickly grew to become one of the global touring operator’s key business drivers.

After embarking on the well-trodden road from Sydney to London in 2012, Kerry held the role of Topdeck’s European Director of Sales, where he headed up the sales and customer service teams across the continent. With an inspiring portfolio of global touring under his belt, Kerry has built an incredible knowledge of the market, and holds valuable relationships across key global wholesale partners.

Since undertaking the epic voyage back to Brisbane, Kerry’s latest challenge is leading Topdeck’s Australasian tour operations. As a part of his ambitious new role, Kerry will aim to reinvent the product range for a new breed of young traveller, launching it on a global scale and ultimately, see the brand continue to cement its place as the world leader in youth travel.
