French born, Geoffrey grew up in the Alps and later completed his Master’s degree in Business and Hospitality Management in Reims, the city of Champagne. He has accumulated an extensive experience abroad, thanks to regular family vacations to foreign countries and territories (over 55 and counting) but also thanks to years of expatriation. Geoffrey has already lived and worked in France, New York City, Taipei, Shanghai, Monaco, and now calls Chicago home.
Geoffrey’s education and personal interests have always helped him nurture and cultivate a passion for the travel industry. From an early marketing role with a prestigious hotel group in Monaco to contributing to the development of the yachting market in China, Geoffrey has enjoyed building rewarding connections with a solid network of friends and partners.
Geoffrey is excited to bring to Huffman Travel his natural flair for service, his yachting culture, and his never-ending appetite to discover original itineraries.
When not researching unique destinations and experiences, Geoffrey continues to travel as much as possible, but also enjoys arts and crafts, yoga, and learning Spanish. Geoffrey is an active member of the Rotaract Club of Chicago – ROTARY/One where he finds many opportunities to volunteer in the Chicago area.
