Welcome to our six new starters joining us at Lexis Byron Bay today!
Benjamin is from the German speaking part of Switzerland. His main hobby is wakeboarding on the lake, but his biggest passion is anything to do with cars! He has worked as a car mechanic for the same company for the past 10 years, but will look for a new job when he returns to Switzerland. He chose Byron Bay for his English studies because of other people’s good feedback about this beautiful location!
Roy is from the German speaking part of Switzerland. His passions include fast cars and travelling. He also enjoys snowboarding in the mountains during winter. He works as a project planner and loves his job! Australia has always been a dream of his so he is extremely happy to be here and enjoy every day!
