An Interview with Louise Ann Gibney, Founder of Boo Ibiza

One of the idyllic Balearic islands, an archipelago of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, Ibiza has a unique blend of attractions that continue to draw diverse crowd – from party lovers and VIPs to chilled out hippies and families. We spoke with Louise Ann Gibney on her experience in pioneering the Boo Ibiza.

Louise Ann Gibney: “My Russian language knowledge was useful to Investment Banks in the mid 1990’s, so that led me to a career in Equity Sales based in Moscow. Many contributing factors paved the way for a change including a better work/life balance. I had been a frequent visitor to Ibiza for over 20 years and the entrepreneurial culture on the island was a draw for me to start something new in a location I loved. Today, I still work with predominantly HNW and UHNW clients managing their family affairs on the island."
