New Crew Member Manifest

October 1 was a busy day as Tugboat welcomed two new crew members aboard. Senior Designer Chris Young and Interactive Brand Manager Scott Holmes were initiated and immediately put to work.

“The crew was well into the red and we needed a couple of senior hands that could hit their stations running,” said Captain and CEO, Steve Gallagher. “Chris’ wealth of graphic design experience – and surprisingly strong shoulders – eased the load immensely, and Scott didn’t miss a beat taking the helm of our interactive content development team, extending our creative and marketing programs to properties on and offline.”

With 15 years of experience, former Ontarian and outdoor enthusiast Chris Young is a well-known and respected talent in Vancouver and has created designs for such popular brands as Blenz Coffee, CityTV and Peoples Jewellers. Multi-talented and deeply passionate about just about everything, Chris is also on the Board of Directors of the International BMX Freestyle Federation.

Scott Holmes is back in Vancouver after a 3-year break in Bangkok where he established Agoda.com’s content and communications department and subsequently helped launch and market the USAID funded, ASEAN tourism website SoutheastAsia.org. He brings an eye for detail and developing opportunities as well as a black belt in writing, editing and Tae Kwon Do.
