“I met Matt while I was the president of the Oilers and I was instantly excited by the solution GetintheLoop offered for solving database marketing opportunities via their unique mobile software,” said La Forge. “I was so excited by what Getintheloop had to offer that I actually suggested that instead of OEG being a customer, I thought OEG should purchase GetintheLoop as quickly as possible. So today, it is very exciting for me to have this opportunity to work alongside a brilliant young digital marketing company that has such a fantastic and unlimited future potential.”

Crowell played junior and university hockey before jumping into the tech world with GetintheLoop which has grown over the years.

“On behalf of our investors, current clients and our team, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Patrick joining GetintheLoop,” said Crowell. “Patrick is a visionary who is committed to achieving success through partnerships and innovation. I know that both of us look forward to working together during this very exciting time for GetintheLoop.”
