Mike van Gaasbeek: A Fond Farewell
On Friday, 20th January 2017, #TeamWORM bade farewell to a much-loved and very important member of our extended family: Mike van Gaasbeek. For many years one of the “big hitters” of the organisation, Mike has decided to concentrate on the fast-growing events management platform, Stager, (which he founded and directs). So it’s not goodbye, (thank goodness) just au revoir.
Naturally, this demanded a decent send off! So WORM decided to invite from the great and the good, from partners and colleagues (old and new), to Rotterdam City Council and VNPF; both of whom paid fulsome tribute to Mike’s work for the cultural sector in the city. The evening was rounded off in true style with gigs by cult hero, Harry Merry, bassist Bruno Ferro Xavier da Silva, and new Rotterdam band Lewsberg.
All the very best Mike! Luv, #TeamWORM.
