Celebrating the wonderful women behind onefinestay

To celebrate International Women’s Day, join us in raising a toast to all the wonderful women behind onefinestay. We are very proud of the fact that 63% of our employees are female, including a staggering 80% of our Management Committee, showcasing how women are really forging the future of the travel industry.

Michele Bayens

We caught up with the marvellous Michele Bayens, Director of Concierge Services, to discover what about onefinestay inspires her and hear her thoughts on the tourism sector in general. Having been with the company for over 16 years (first at Travel Keys and then at onefinestay), Michele is one of our longest-standing female members of the team and is a wealth of knowledge for everything and anything travel related.

Sherrie has been with the company for eight years and has seen it grow from a tiny start-up to an international business with destinations all over the world.
