Introducing Andre Gailits

Posted 7 July 2011 by Jacob Malthouse to Site Updates.

We are pleased to introduce Andre Gailits, who will be joining the Big Room team as an Associate.

We hired Andre through the UBC Arts Co-op Program. He’s a UBC student that has completed a Major in Political Science, is finishing a second Major in Economics and is interested in pursuing a law degree. Andre’s academic focus is on macroeconomics and the role of contemporary governments.

He brings a wealth of experience to Big Room, having completed previous co-op terms with the federal government at DFAIT and INAC as well as with a local non-profit organization.

Andre also spent his childhood in three different countries, living in the USA, UK and Canada. He is very excited about joining the Big Room team, raising the profile of the Ecolabel Index, and working to augment the platform’s analytics and metrics.
