Who is behind Smallfish

John

Founder

I’m 42 y/o living in the suburb of Amsterdam. In the early days of my career, I worked for large IT Enterprise company. During that period, I got the opportunity to interact with many large customers through various IT projects. I understood the importance of building relationship in order to facilitate and succeed in the development of large business projects. As a direct consequence I developed an acquainted taste for digital technology from that period.

In parallel, having a strong passion for music, I started working on various projects which consist on promoting and touring artists and bands in Europe and Asia. I always consider this period as my apprentice time as I gained knowledge, experience and developed my network.

From 2010 up to now, I worked as promoter and consultant in Bangkok. I have been developping the business activities of  Vijicorp Ltd. Through the last 5 years, I promoted a various set of artists such as Mogwai, Vampire Weekend, Backstreet Boys, Herbie Hancock, Kings of Convenience, Explosions in the Sky, Sergio Mendes and it’s not over. Through the success of our shows,  the level services provided to the artists coming to Bangkok, the level of trust of the different booking agency I’m dealing with, Vijicorp Ltd became a key actor on the Asian scene.

Just recently, in 2015, I decided to create SmallFish which focus mostly on artists management. I clearly understand the challenges faced by a young artist or band who want to be recognized or tour more. Therefore, I’m really eager to provide through an adequate and structured path, a set of services that will enable any artist to gain visibility and develop his career to the next level.
