Isabell Böck – Managing Partner

Isabell has been crazy about travel ever since she was a little girl. No matter whether she’s camping at the North Sea, backpacking in Australia, staying at a luxury hotel in Asia or snowboarding down the Alps, she feels right at home on the road. And thanks to her extensive language skills, she is hardly ever at a loss for words.

In 2000, Isabell decided to make travel her career path of choice. Being a curious person, she tried a range of options—from tours to cruises, from the hotel industry to event management—before happily and passionately settling on destination marketing, which is what she has been doing in recent years.

Most recently, Isabell headed up the destination marketing team at one of the top-five tourism PR and marketing agencies. Her happy clients hail from up north like Estonia to down south like Piedmont in Italy. They span as far west as Peru and east as South Korea.

Following a short stint in FMCG marketing, Isabell returned to tourism in 2013 and founded fame, fulfilling a long-held dream of hers.

Her list of personal favorites includes snowboarding, Tae Bo, Scandinavian fashion, Asian food, electronic music and—as you’ve probably guessed by now—world travel.

You can communicate with Isabell in English, German, Spanish and French.
