Jack Tsai and his family moved to Port Alberni from Vancouver 15 years ago. Jack and his wife, Grace, are the proud parents of 9 children – 7 boys and 2 girls!
Jack operates Alberni Design, a company launched in 2003, which provides web design, development and marketing. He enjoys working locally, building relationships and really getting to know his clients, which enables him to build sites which truly meet the needs of his clients. His company has designed and built more than 100 websites for businesses and organizations in the Alberni Valley, including the City of Port Alberni, the Port Alberni Port Authority, the Alberni Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Alberni Valley Employment Centre, the Arrowsmith Baptist Church – and many, many more.
ALBERNI. CA is Port Alberni’s community website. Jack is inspired to build and improve our community and designed this site to connect locally, to inform people about Port Alberni, and to promote local businesses and organizations.
It targets three markets:
3. Organizations/non-profits (events and news all published free of charge)
In addition to web design and development, Alberni Design can assist with social media, Facebook, etc.
Jack has been working with the career counsellor at ADSS and has a mentorship/internship program to train students. An opportunity which has turned into full-time employment. Would like to see more young people train in this field – kids not interested in trades, but can earn a decent (?) wage.
Jack speaks very highly of the support and friendliness he and his family have received in our community. He thinks Port Alberni is a fantastic place to live and it is very important to him and his family to give back to the community and make a difference in people’s lives.
