Our people

Trudi Peet – Managing Director

Trudi has been passionate about the Fiji Islands and its people since she was a child. She has an extensive history in the travel and hospitality industry and has previously represented some of New Zealand and Fiji's most exclusive hotels, resorts and lodges. Trudi established Destination Fiji in 2000 and after five fantastic years, moved to Fiji herself to completely immerse herself in the country. While living in Fiji, Trudi continued to be heavily involved in the travel industry before returning to New Zealand to meet family commitments.

Trudi and her business partner, Jeanette, formally re-established
Destination Fiji in 2016. Trudi now spends considerable time in the Fijian islands (lucky her!) working within the industry and on behalf of Destination Fiji clients. Her passion for Fiji and all that it offers continues to grow.

Trudi's wealth of knowledge, on-the-ground experience and deep understanding of Fijian culture provides the kind of inside knowledge no other company can offer. Trudi is wildly enthusiastic and will personally ensure your business event, holiday escape or romantic Fiji wedding is superbly organised with creative flair and utter professionalism. Trudi will not settle for anything short of exceptional.

Destination Fiji wants you to love Fiji as much as we do – and it is Trudi's mission to make sure you do!

Jeanette Tyrrell – Director

Jeanette has a strong business background and works behind the scenes to support Trudi and ensure Destination Fiji has everything it needs to deliver exceptional events. Jeanette is widely travelled, including throughout the Pacific, Asia and more.

However, she adores Fiji and like Trudi is in the Fijian islands as often as possible, building relationships and working to create new and innovative opportunities for Destination Fiji clients.

Jeanette has a strong writing and marketing background and continues to write travel features for a range of publications. Not surprisingly, a number of those feature Fiji!

"With Trudi's help, organising our conference was a really pleasurable experience and the outcome was so positive we decided to repeat it with Trudi the following year! Trudi organised absolutely everything from the special airport welcome to the final farewell. Her local contacts meant our conference was designed just for us and our guests loved it!"
