“transition is something this industry needs” says company founder, joe dunnigan. “as an industry comprised of smaller brands, many either can’t, or don’t want to, hire a big staff of people in house. more and more, they are looking for professional freelancers to outsource projects to. transition brings a broad and far reaching pool of talented people and business resources from within the industry under one roof.”
company president, joe dunnigan, co-founded the internet’s first online skateboard/snowboard shop, bigdeal.com, in 1995 and grew the company to within the top 1% of all web sites online by 2000. he also co-founded cowtown skateboards, a well known specialty skateboard retail chain in arizona, and has done consulting for skateboard.com and YMCA skateboard park initiatives.
