Wasserman Benelux is an engagement marketing agency, specialised in live communication, brand activation and event marketing. We work directly for advertisers as well as for communication agencies who don’t have the field execution in house. At Wasserman, we like to be involved early in the process to offer an A to Z service. From crisp strategic and creative recommendations based of clear insights to perfect execution and follow up. Meet the team of experienced marketing professionals and young go-getters.
With an already impressive palmares Dirk has brought BORiS to life together with David & Jonathan. His 14 years of experience in marketing makes him the perfect man to take care of the strategic and creative processes that BORiS Agency has to offer.
Because of David, we can do what we do. Every penny that goes in and out of BORiS has to pass by David. Next to the entire financial department he’s responsible for many of the great internal processes that keeps BORiS going. And once every year, a couple of weeks, he disconnects from everything, by traveling the world and following his kite (and the wind).
What do you get when Chuck Norris and McGuyver have a baby? Jup, you get Jonathan. A multitalented production manager who is the driving force behind the field. He makes sure everything looks like it does. Just check out our photo’s on the website. That says it all.
Jonathan-Fact: Jonathan has counted to infinity – Twice.
As Account Director, Katleen is the first contact point for all our clients, new (and old of course). With a loving and energetic approach, she directs the team of Project Managers both in group as individually on their projects. Her large network and many years of experience (brand and agency side) makes Katleen the perfect woman for the job. Her inexhaustible source of energy makes sure the office is never boring (or quiet). Don't hesitate to go and have a talk with her on one of the many festivals or events this summer that she always attends. Never a dull moment with her!
Seppe is our Project Accountant. He always keeps track of all expenses at Wasserman and everything that has to do with finance. With a little music, Seppe will turn up to dance the night away. You can make him happy by playing some Rock or Hip-Hop.
Mr Turnhout himself. We have never seen anyone so enthusiastic and proud about his home town (and we even have colleagues from Antwerp).
Tobias is our Account Manager on wonderful brands such as Bacardi, Jupiler, Corona, Victoria, and many others. A real beer connaisseur you can say (which he already was). When he’s not in the office, you can find him with his friends on a bike and, of course, with a cold Victoria on a terrace afterwards. Did you know he drove all the way from Turnhout to the Mont Ventoux and then drove to the top? We too think that’s a long drive just to have a beer.
Straight out of the Kempen! Meet our miss Herentals.
Robin is the Project Manager for brands like Bacardi-Martini and Miele.
You can always find her at the festivals, for an ice-cold Bacardi Spiced cocktail.
She has built her first Casa Bacardi in 2022 and is ready for the next steps in this journey.
Anouck started as an intern and worked her way up to a Project Manager role and is now our proud People Planner. She is living the Wasserman-dream. The People Planner is our number-one contact with all the agents. You could even say that she’s like a mom to them.
Coming from a telecom provider, Sarah knows her way around the experiential marketing. Her front door is next to the entrance of Rock Werchter, we believe destiny does exist. Sarah is a mom of 2 beautiful little boys, and you can always make her happy with a glass of red wine!
Meet our friendly northern neighbour: Jonathan … but you can call him Jim. Jim runs our Dutch side of our business. He works across all brands and works closely together with the Belgian account & project team to deliver great execution in The Netherlands. You can find him in our Amsterdam office, so feel free to swing by to say hello. Jim is married with children, not real children, but a dog: Donny. The cutest puppy ever to take over Zoom-calls.
Julia is our project manager in the Netherlands. When she's not busy making something new out of second-hand stuff. Preferably making lamps or cooking, she manages the perfect execution for our Dutch clients like Bacardi Martini or Ab-Inbev. She lives in amsterdam with her boyfriend Niels and her cat Pleun. Her favourite place in Amsterdam is Cafe Cliché.
Nick is responsible for the entire field planning and making sure everything is build in the field as it should. No job is too challenging for him. Besides running a tight ship on the planning, he’s a father of two and mountainbike enthusiast. And if you think that is already great, he plays in an actual awesome rock band…and they perform live…and they make great songs…on Spotify! Go look them up: Astodan. The coolness of Wasserman Benelux just went up. Rock on.
A big part of our business revolves around building great productions, big or small, and the warehouse is an important link in this chain. Warehouse manager Jorgen has a passion for football and in his spare time he is the manager of the KVK Daltons: a football team, that he claims, is tougher & meaner than any other in the nation. If you ever come by our warehouse, be prepared for a warm welcome and even a coffee if you like. He looks tough, but as we say it in Flemish: He has a gingerbread heart.
Diede is a part of our field team. Whenever he’s not on the football field, Diede is building on our projects. He is also a very big Bacardi fan, speaking of a match made in heaven.
Ben is a part of our field team. He might be the biggest of the bunch but surely has a small Wasserman heart. Always walking around with a big smile on his face and ready for a laugh or a good talk. Ben is literally our Ben the builder.
