CLINT DRDUL

DIRECTOR OF SALES

Clint oversees all sales and marketing. When he is not in the office you can find him chasing his 6-year-old twins down a ski slope, watching his Sales Manager sing bluesy karaoke or hanging out by the water and enjoying this beautiful province where he was born and raised. West Trek could be his favourite division because of its budget pricing and fun group activities that make Western Canada (arguably Canada’s) best sightseeing accessible to all!

STACEY THORSON

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

Stacey is responsible for all the operations of West Trek and Discover Canada’s other divisions. Stacey’s favourite season is winter – she loves to ski and go tobogganing with her kids! She has traveled extensively throughout Canada and internationally and prior to starting DCT, she lived and worked in the Middle East.  For her travelling is a way of life and a passion unrivalled by no other. Both Stacey and Clint know the transformative adventure of travel is not only about where we go, but who you go with: on the West Trek tours you will meet people from a wide diversity of places and cultures, and return home with vivid and meaningful memories and new friendships that expand the global community.

Meindert
MEINDERT STEKETEE

TOUR COORDINATOR

Meindert, also known as Pancake and Tim, is our Tour Coordinator. He is originally from the Netherlands, has lived in New Zealand for a year and traveled all over both Europe and Western Canada. Meindert has a curious mind. He is fond of the questions “why and why not?” His investigation leads him to finding the best suppliers for our tours and continually refining our products. He is also passionate about pancakes and has been known to cook them at random for the whole office, awarding him the nickname “Pancake.” When not at West Trek you can find him ordering coffee at Starbucks by the name “Tim,” hiking and/or biking, or watching Netflix on his king size bed.

ERIN QUEENAN

SENIOR SALES REPRESENTATIVE & MARKETING COORDINATOR

Our South African Canadian and awesome all rounder has been a fantastic addition to the team. Erin manages to a bit of everything, and she does it all pretty damn well too. Tour guide, sales rep, marketer, social media enthusiast and design guru… Some people just don’t know how to pick a niche eh. When not doing all things West Trek you might just find her hiking up a mountain, camping in the woods or perhaps lining up her next meal… Currently banned from almost all buffets in Vancouver, this one can put it away!

ANDREA RIBEIRO

SALES REPRESENTATIVE & DESIGNER

Andrea is a lover of life and travel. Originally from Brazil, she has made herself into a citizen of the world. After travelling South America, Europe, The United States and Canada, she has chosen Vancouver as her home (for now). She will jump at the chance to join any tour in a moment’s notice and never turns down an invite to a party. Since joining West Trek, she has greatly aided the development of a number of projects and also in the design of our marketing materials. Andrea is very competitive and also trained as a lawyer, so she brings a lot of determination and negotiating skill to her work here! However, despite all of this we still notice she will melt into a puddle when a dog walks into the office…

ANA CAROLINA JOBIM

SALES REPRESENTATIVE

Carol… Caroline… Ana… Ana-Carolina… Carl? Always smiling, positive and energetic, a little bit of Rio sunshine to brighten an often rainy Vancouver. Aside from being an outstanding member of the West Trek team, she is also known for her outstanding culinary skills… we are regularly blown away with her creations. Such classics as plain pasta and mayonnaise, salad in a bag, and microwave hot dogs have been enough to make us all salivate with envy!
