At the beginning of June, to be exact June 1st, 2019, Tourism Corporation Bonaire welcomed Mrs. Derchlien Vrolijk-Dijkhoff as she assumed the position of Marketing Manager. Mrs. Vrolijk is not unknown with the tourism sector as she worked at TCB in 2011 as Online and Product. Prior to assuming her new role, Mrs. Vrolijk grew in her career through several marketing related occupations such as; Marketing Representative at TELBO, Communication Coordinator at STINAPA and Marketing Coordinator at Tiara Air (based in Aruba) to mention a few.
As the new Marketing Manager, Mrs. Vrolijk’s primary goal is to work together and closely with partners, stakeholders and the local community towards a gradual tourism growth through sustainable planning and development.
Mrs. Vrolijk was born in Aruba, studied in the Netherlands and the USA majoring in Marketing & Communications and Economy: Small Business & Entrepreneurship Management. Migrated to Bonaire late 2010 and returned to Aruba in late 2012. During this short period Bonaire was implanted in her heart. This feeling empowered her to migrate once again with her family back to Bonaire in late 2015 and has ever since established Bonaire as her new home.
