Pema is a prolific entrepreneur, content creator and marketer who has helped launch everything from a Canadian media company to the UK’s first Indy Car racetrack.
In April 2010 Pema joined the celebrated Canadian digital, advertising and design agency Rethink to lead the opening of their Toronto office. Prior to joining Rethink, Pema co-founded GigPark, a social web startup that lets members find local businesses through recommendations from friends. GigPark was acquired by Canpages in August 2009.
Before GigPark, Pema was the founding editor-in-chief of Dose Magazine, growing the Canadian print and online media brand to more than 330,000 daily readers.
Pema is a compulsive traveller, a part-time surfer, and has a (sometimes unhealthy) obsession with modern architecture.
