Meet Nick, the Founder & CEO of Tour Llama

Posted by Nick Goudreau on May 11, 2018 2:24:23 PM

Hi there!

I'm Nick, one of the Founders of Tour Llama. One of the things I believe is that it's super important for a company's culture to feel more human to their customers. As a customer, I want to feel like I'm treated as an individual, whether I'm customer 2 or customer 2 million, but as a business owner, I want my team members to feel the same way to our customers.
