Indri Gordon - Head of People & Performance

Indri Gordon Go Orange

Q - How long have you worked for Go Orange? 
Since the merge with Kiwi Discovery & Queenstown Rafting in May 2017.

Q - Why did you choose to live and work in Queenstown? 
I need to live in the mountains, growing up in Nepal has ingrained that in me.  Access to sick bike tracks also weighs heavily in my decision to live here, along with all my BFFs of course.

Q - What is the best part of your job?
Getting to know GO people, and party planning. Christmas party planning was a blast!

Q - Tell us about a memorable moment during your time with Go Orange?
Meeting Emma Hansen on the 8th December (she paid me to say that).

Q - What is your favourite feature on the brand new Milford Haven boat?
This is a no brainer… beer on tap of course.

Q - Tell us, what do you like to do outside of work?
I ride bikes, not as much as I used to but still a considerable amount. Taking RobbieG on riding, camping and boating missions is pretty popular in the Gordon household. 

Q - What is your favourite part about living and working in Queenstown?
I love Queenstown, I love working in tourism, I love the bustle and the diversity of Queenstown. I have roots here now, so will be here for a while!

Q - If you didn’t work for Go Orange what would you do?
I would like to think I would be working in environmental planning and actually making use of that degree I have.

Q - If you could live and work anywhere in the world where would it be?
Pretty stoked to be here, but wouldn’t say no to a stint in Canada or Norway.

Q - What was life before Go Orange?
Working as a general gofer for Kiwi Discovery / Queenstown Rafting and being a mum to a baby (Scariest. Thing. Ever.)

Q - If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
Back to Kathmandu, Nepal to hang out with my folks and old friends.

Q - Describe your perfect day in Queenstown?
Heaps of coffee, hang time with RobbieG and Fray-Dawg, laps up skyline, pop up to Glenorchy for some boating and beersies, then cook up a massive feed for friends. More beersies.

Q - Have you travelled around New Zealand? If so what is your favourite spot?
Mt Cook resonates with me. Its where my mum grew up, and it’s a fine example of a beautiful set of mountains. To me it is quintessential NZ.

Q - What is one thing you suggest for people to do while visiting Queenstown?
Well obviously go rafting or jet boating. But take the time to have a beer at Atlas and Smiths – it would be a shame to miss out on that experience.

Q - What is your favourite Go Experience & Why?
Hanging out at the raft base shooting the s*#t. Jokes… Loving the Haven right now, it is such a mint place to hang out. It’s different from anything else in Milford, the entire experience is so awesome, from the scenery, boat and food to the friendly faces that make it all happen.
