We truly want to save you time by taking care of all the details. We plan, you play.
Chad was born and raised in Kelowna and has refused to leave as the city provides him the ability to enjoy Kelowna activities like playing hockey, golf, baseball and beach volleyball – sometimes all in the same day! Even before achieving his BBA at Okanagan College, Chad has been immersed in the tourism industry. Ask him about being the target ball-picker at a local driving range, surviving driving the party bus limo for bachelorette parties or being on the start-up team of one of Kelowna’s most successful new restaurants – Chad’s truly done & seen it all!
Jon De Bruyne
Jon was born in Belgium and raised in the Cayman Islands. He moved to Kelowna at the age of twelve and hasn’t found a reason to leave yet. Jon has been a hospitality junkie for over 10 years and has truly mastered the art of exceptional customer service through progressive guest services positions. Jon only participates in Kelowna activities which require specialty footwear – soccer boots, baseball cleats & golf shoes, the brighter the better.
CO-OWNER / EVENTS & MARKETING MANAGER
Jillian is one of those rare breeds who was born and raised in Kelowna. After completing her BBA at Okanagan College, she fell in love with hospitality working at iconic hotels in Victoria and Calgary before returning home. She’s seen all sides of the tourism industry through food & beverage, sales & marketing and wedding planning positions. You’ll often see her with a glass of Okanagan Wine in one hand and cell phone in the other, constantly posting on social media. #Lovesagoodhashtag
Jessica De Bruyne
CO-OWNER / FINANCE MANAGER
Like many current Kelownians, Jessica was born in Ontario and has migrated further and further west, working in hospitality all along the way. She has called Kelowna home for the past 5 years and received her BBA at Okanagan College as an accounting major. Jessica gets excited about spreadsheets, invoicing and financial statements (seriously!), but don’t ask her to do mental math, she is calculator dependent.
