When Ben and I moved Think! to Vancouver, we had never entertained the idea of adding another partner. Having known each other since a young age, we have a very unique relationship that has proven to be a huge asset in our business lives.
Think! is a company formed around a passion for innovation and our love of the tourism industry. We believe that the rapid advances in online communication have revealed an unprecedented opportunity for collaboration in our industry. We also understand that budgets are under pressure and we strive to find new ways to partner with our clients.
There are few people that grasp the intersection of tourism and digital innovation as well as William Bakker. On November 12th William Bakker will officially join our team. It is very rare that you find someone who shares identical philosophies and in William’s own words, “we’re all cut from the same wood”. We’re very proud of the hard work our team has dedicated to-date and Ben and I couldn’t be more excited to have William join us as a partner. Even our branding coincidentally matches William’s national soccer team’s shirts.
Since our beginnings, we’ve been focused on how social media can benefit tourism marketing. It is now time to look at opportunities beyond such a narrow focus. William will be primarily responsible for expanding our digital services. His experience at Tourism British Columbia and intimate understanding of the industry will be an incredible addition to our team and we are certain that he can lift our business to the next level.
Welcome aboard Wilhelmus from all of the Think! team!
