Stampa opens office in Belgium
Stampa has opened an office in Belgium, fulfilling the growing demand for corporate and financial communications on the Belgian market and clients’ desire to entrust their Benelux communications to a single agency.
Jeroen Lissens, 39, has been appointed Account Director in Belgium. With a background in economic journalism and business communications, Belgian-born Jeroen has the perfect experience and expertise to complement Stampa’s established practices in Amsterdam and London.
Jeroen previously worked as an independent communications consultant at groups such as Ageas, Optima and P&V Group in roles including spokesman, communications manager and head of communications. Before that, he spent a decade in journalism, reporting for Belgian business newspapers De Tijd and De Standaard.
“We have provided communications consultancy across the whole Benelux region since we began, but many of our clients were keen for us to have a local presence in Belgium. We’re happy to have found the right person in Jeroen for this,” says Stampa director Jos Havermans. As well as great experience and knowledge of the market, Jeroen brings linguistic expertise and creativity – all aspects that are crucial to making a difference for our clients.”
Since our founding in Amsterdam and London in 2008, Stampa has developed into a 16-strong international team.
We also recently strengthened our Amsterdam team with the appointment of Barbara Sanders as Account Director. Barbara has many years of experience in financial journalism as financial reporter for De Telegraaf and at real estate website Vastgoedjournaal. Media analyst Marieke Koelewijn has joined Stampa’s growing media monitoring team.
