British Columbia Travel Guide
The unofficial BC Travel & Tourism Guide

Wolfgang Zilker

Co-founder and co-owner Wolfgang Zilker is the techie who maintains the state-of-the-art system that powers GoBC, and keeps GoBC front and centre in online search engines. Wolfgang has more than 30 years experience in IT and specializes in internet and intranet database applications. Prior to moving to Canada, Wolfgang owned an IT company in Germany for 15 years. In 1999, Wolfgang founded VSIP Consulting Inc. and created the powerful content management and e-commerce system which now powers GoBC, and many of VSIP's customers' websites.

Given half a chance, Wolfgang escapes to his remote cabin in the Chilcotin - proof that he can live without internet access.
