WhiteWater announces key hires ahead of IAAPA Expo Europe 2021

WhiteWater has announced two new key hires in business development ahead of IAAPA Expo Europe in Barcelona, 28 – 30 September.

With extensive experience providing digital solutions to parks, Frank Good is leading the business development at Vantage, while industry veteran Domingo Vergoossen heads business development at WhiteWater’s Water Rides division.

Vantage is an advanced software platform accelerating the digital transformation of the leisure industry. Combining wearable tech, RFID, beacons, mobile apps, and intelligent algorithms, it can integrate all the systems and data used by a park for the benefit of its visitors as well as its marketing and operations teams.

Frank Good’s experience providing digital solutions to parks matches the objectives at Vantage. He has dedicated 10 years of his career helping clients succeed through technology. Good has worked with top brands in the amusement, cultural institution, zoo, aquarium, and ski markets to improve their guest experience as well as drive new outcomes for revenue and brand metrics. “It is rare to find a person with Frank’s experience bringing disruptive technologies to the industry. We are excited to add him to the team and deliver our innovative solution to market,” said Philip Edgell, President of Vantage.

 

Attractions veteran Domingo Vergoossen is taking the role of VP, global business development in WhiteWater’s Water Rides division.

While well known for water slides, WhiteWater has also been dominant in the design, manufacturing, and refurbishment of water rides for a decade, offering attractions such as Log Flume, Shoot the Chute, and the IAAPA Brass Ring Award-winning Spinning Rapids Ride.

Domingo Vergoossen’s experience in water ride design and projects spans over 15 years. He began as a designer at Vekoma Amusement Rides and then was charged with establishing Vekoma’s first China manufacturing facility in Guangdong province in 2004. Vergoossen was instrumental in setting up the FlyOver theatre in Vancouver and was part of the development team that brought the attraction to other cities. Vergoossen has previously worked with WhiteWater on several projects, with a sharp focus on client needs.

“We are honoured to welcome Domingo to WhiteWater. His depth of expertise will be extremely valuable to help our clients realize their goals, while his breadth of knowledge will help the team see the whole picture,” said Paul Chutter, WhiteWater’s President.

WhiteWater invites Expo attendees to come meet Frank and Domingo at the show, as well as the rest of the team, to discuss projects and new developments in water, theme, and surf parks, and how these can create value for clients in Europe.
