Aad's background is in business management and marketing. He graduated in Business Administration in Eindhoven, Holland and worked for KLM Dutch Airlines and ran a successful design firm in Europe before immigrating to Canada in 1997 as project manager for the International Festival of Arts. Aad and his wife, Jeanette Obbink, founded Blueprint Agencies (formerly Blueprint IT Works) more than 15 years ago.
Aad’s good business sense has seen Blueprint grow steadily in Canada while continuing to retain a number of European clients. His design, web development and content management expertise, paired with his ability to discern client’s unique needs and offer solutions that work influence everything the Blueprint team does.
In his "spare" time, Aad is a member of the Brant Economic Development Advisory Council and active in the Rotary Club.
