Meet the team

Guy Hibbert

Guy first travelled in France aged 17, hitchhiking 1500 miles from Calais down to the Pyrénées and then over to the Cote d’Azur. The unbelievable hospitality shown by the French people en route and the incredible destinations discovered made an impact that lasted a lifetime. With a professional background in publishing and events it was inevitable that one day he would look to blend his passion for France together with his entrepreneurial streak. Although he has spent decades travelling or living in France Guy says he can’t quite believe how much more of the country is still out there to be explored!

Benjamin Stephens

Ben is our idea man! His passion lies in helping new projects bubble to the surface and then actually making them happen. Having spent over a decade working at France Media Group, predominantly in the publishing arm of France Today, FrenchEntrée & Bonjour Paris, Ben is excited to launch a natural extension of our pages by creating our own tour business. He says, “we will help our devoted readers share some of my most wonderful experiences in France.” He ought to know;  ever the romantic, he proposed to his wife in the City of Lights, overlooking the Arc de Triomphe. “La vie est belle”…

Jennifer Dugdale

With a tourism career spanning the US, UK and Europe, Jennifer directs France Today Travels and tells us it is her dream job! Having lived in France for more than a decade, she is passionate about all things French. She loves to uncover the hidden experiences that make travelling to France so special and she will also accompany all our guests in 2017. Come along and she might just tell you about her favorite restaurant in the whole of France, where her family has made many memories… in fact, don’t get her started on that topic!

Kate Doyle

For Kate, our digital specialist, the best part about working on the France Today Travels team is that she gets to be an armchair traveler every day! She loves poring over all the beautiful photos of France, remembering family vacations and skiing in the Alps, dreaming of her next trip, and bringing it to life for our readers and travelers. After managing the digital portfolio for France Media Group including the websites FrenchEntrée, France Today and Bonjour Paris, this is an exciting new project for Kate. Just leave that suitcase at home, Kate; we need someone in the office!
