  • My name is Geoff Hackett, in my capacity as General Manager at Cruisefusion Australia I employed Justin Smythe as a contract business development manager for our Queensland/New South Wales territory for a period of 3 years from 2017 through to closure of our business in Feb21 due to covid19 border closures.

    Justin was instrumental in growing our agent B2B business in those regions upwards of 100% during that time. He has a passion for the travel business and a personal connection with all of his agent customers. He thinks outside the square in terms of how he can adapt his product to best suit an agents needs and always forthcoming with feedback to assist strategy in sourcing new business. I enjoyed his proactive approach to representation of our products and he was always a pleasure and easy to discuss issues with. Problem solving and dispute resolution were also a strength.

    I’d have no hesitation in reinstating Justin if our business was ever to return and can highly recommend him to any future employer in a similar role.
