Speaking on his new role, Wilfred, says, “Klook is a pioneer in the tours and activities industry and I am proud to join the talented and passionate team. It's an exciting time to be in this space. The emergence of mobile has captured traditionally offline in-destination bookings, and merchants are now more ready than ever to adopt new technology.
