A Fantastic Addition to the Team
“I’m delighted to be joining blooloop,” says Owen. “I’ve been an admirer of Charlie and Rachel’s efforts for some years. I have watched with interest as the business has evolved to become such a popular source of information and networking for the attractions industry. I look forward to writing for professionals not just in the theme park and waterpark sectors, but also museums, zoos and aquariums, who I know are an important part of the blooloop readership.”
Commenting on the new appointment, Charlie Read, MD blooloop says, “We are really pleased to have Owen on board. He brings with him a wealth of industry experience and is a fantastic addition to the team as we continue to develop and grow the business.”
