Our Team

The team at our West Leederville office

Jenny Franceschi – Managing Director 
Jenny As the owner of the company, it was important for Jenny to have experience in different areas within the travel industry. She began in the industry in 1994 in Perth and after a few years of working in retail travel as a consultant, she moved to Melbourne. The majority of her time there was spent working for Qantas Holidays in various roles.

Upon returning to Perth, she joined Kings Tours. In no time at all, she was managing the business and then in 2010, her and her husband Bronson, purchased the business. Jenny is highly experienced in not only managing all aspects of travel but managing people and the various divisions of her company. What has set her above the rest is her down to earth approach, her willingness to help people and treat them as she would her own family. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Jenny and you can rely on the service and care from all of her employees as they share the same values as herself.

Jenny continues to develop herself and believes in the importance of adding value to her businesses by continuing to study and learn. She has won many awards and was recently nominated for the Telstra Business Woman of the Year award in the category of entrepreneur. 
Wendy Ellis – Senior Travel Consultant & Office Manager 
Wendy has been in the travel industry for over 24 years and with Kings Tours since 2014. Wendy was born in Australia, but spent the first half of her life in Vancouver, Canada, and then moved to Perth in 1986. Hence the reason for her broad knowledge of North America, especially Canada! 

Wendy’s main focus in the office is organising holidays for clients who want to travel independently - she thrives on putting together out of the ordinary itineraries. Since 2008, she has coordinated and escorted small group tours to destinations around the world, including Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Norway and eastern Canada. 

Wendy’s expertise also centres on cruising, which has taken her to the Baltic, Mexico, Hawaii and the East & Western Mediterranean. Her most recent overseas adventure was on a trip to Switzerland travelling the country by rail, which was a fabulous experience. 
Alison Gray – Senior Travel & Groups Consultant 
Alison G Alison is originally from Ireland, but grew up in the UK and worked for Thomas Cook for 14 years. She moved to Australia in 2012 and after four years in Sydney decided to move her family to Perth and joined Kings Tours.

Internationally she has visited the Caribbean, South East Asia, the USA and most of the European countries. Her favourites would be Finnish Lapland to visit Santa and the bright lights of Vegas! 
Courtney Jarman – Product Manager
