Attractions veteran Domingo Vergoossen is taking the role of vice-president, global business development in WhiteWater’s water rides division.
While well-known for water slides, WhiteWater has also been involved in the design, manufacturing, and refurbishment of water rides for a decade, offering attractions such as Log Flume, Shoot the Chute, and the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Brass Ring award-winning Spinning Rapids Ride.
Vergoossen’s experience in water ride design and projects spans more than 15 years. He began as a designer at Vekoma Amusement Rides and then was charged with establishing its first manufacturing facility in China’s 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 the brand on several projects, with a sharp focus on client needs.
“We are honoured to welcome Domingo. 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 WhiteWater president Paul Chutter.
