Prior to Goboony, he was the commercial director of a car importer group, before becoming a consultant specialising in business growth. He has the gift of gab, his glass is always half full and he likes to go out in the boony's with his family.

Where does the name Goboony come from?

In the boonies is an expression from New Zealand which means ‘go on a journey, go your own way and don’t let anyone guide you’. That is exactly the feeling you get when travelling with a motorhome. Combine that with two enormous travel and motorhome fans, Mark and Foppe (founders of Goboony), who met during a journey through New-Zealand with a motorhome, and that’s when the idea for Goboony started.
