I started at VVV Slochteren as a chairman in 2012 and now, six years and counting, later I am ending this project of regional marketing.
After my volunteering jobs E57 | Elverdesign was requested to create a new identity, Marketing Midden-Groningen, build an organisation and a community of entrepreneurs and stakeholders. Formal and informal contacts wit the provincial stakeholders, the cities of Menterwolde, Hoogezand-Sappemeer and Slochteren resulted in funding for a start of a regional marketing company that could promote tourism in the newly (2018) created Municipality of Midden-Groningen. After a renewal of my initial contract in 2017 it now is time to let other professionals take over and make Midden-Groningen the touristic pearl it is!
October 2018 will be the first month I won’t be involved with Marketing Midden-Groningen in 6 years, so I’ll get some more time to find challenging projects and interesting customers!
