Meet the Committee February: Fay Rees
Fay Rees, Chief Strategy Officer, DayAway

I’m at my happiest when...
I am traveling and exploring somewhere new or else when I am back at home with my family after a long trip.

The podcast I am listening to is...
Too many to count! Stories of Our Times, The Twenty Minute VC, FT Weekend, The Rewatchables, and WomenWhoTravel among many others. Through my career in consulting, I have been lucky enough to work across the spectrum from start-ups through to long-established corporates, focusing on luxury fashion retail, beauty, health and wellness, and travel and hospitality. I’m currently working with DayAway which partners with luxury hotels across the globe, to provide revitalising daytime experiences for consumers.

The last thing I bought and loved was...
A bag from a small vintage store in the UK when I was there over Christmas.

An object I’d never part with is...
My late father’s 1979 Omega Seamaster watch that he gave to me before he passed away. I also would never part with a vintage Levi’s denim jacket that I stole from him as a teenager.

The place I can’t wait to go back to is...
Marrakech and I really want to get to Tel Aviv finally this year.

The world would be a better place if...
We remind ourselves to be thankful.
