WHO IS BORiS AGENCY
BORiS 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 BORiS, 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!
Crackin’ jokes and developing festival concepts since 2014 at BORiS Agency. Vincent spends most of his time in the summer on the festivals for great brands such as Coca-Cola & Bacardí. If you don't see him on one of the festivals in Belgium or The Netherlands you'll probably run into him at one of many other events. With a big interest in design, music and other creative processes he keeps an eye on how BORiS looks (and feels). Next to the office hours he’s occupied with organising his own events fed by his love for house music.
When she started at BORiS it took about 18 minutes to make herself feel at home at BORiS. Now her days are occupied with trying to brighten up everyones day! This little spark plug is responsible for brands such as Grey Goose, St-Germain and the Creative Belgium Awards that she organises every year. Our golden award goes to... Yessica!
Baguette, fromage, Oui Oui, ... Not one French word is unknown to Gilles. Our loving and funny Brussels based colleague started working at BORiS in the summer of 2016 on brands such as Jack Daniels, Eristoff and Piper-Heidsieck. With a big love for festivals, nightlife and music he fits these brands like no other. But that's not why we love him, he can make some very good cocktails. And who doesn't love a guy who makes you cocktails? Gilles, 4 Whiskey Sours please.
You know that awkward silence that sometimes happen when you talk to someone? You won't ever get that with Maxime. Maxime can talk...Like seriously...she will talk about anything, everywhere at anytime. With Max you'll have the best conversations, and if that's not enough, she'll add in some Martini & Tonic to keep the conversation going! That's right, she works for the fantastic brand of Martini working on projects such as the Terrazza Martini during the F1 Francorchamps. Oh yeah, she loves horses too, she loves 'em so much she gives them suntans. Not kidding.
There is a funny story about Leonie when she started working at BORiS. But not one that I will share here. Leonie does some of the most badassery things in events in the Netherlands. There is not one organiser or festival employer that she doesn't know, and not a single Amsterdammer that doesn't know Leonie. Weird that she doesn't have a statue over there already. Leonie is active on all brands in the Netherlands and does these projects with a huge passion.
Matthew is a project manager at Boris and he loves fast cars. When you ask him something he will go straight into 5th gear. He loves to gather and calculate statistics which has earned him a nickname at the office.. ‘The Statman”. You can also ask him anything about Basketball!
Ines is part of our team of project managers. She takes on any task with the greatest enthusiasm. With her colorful character she always keeps the office space a brighter and happier place. Besides her work she’s occupied with fighting climate change, everything that is Beyoncé, and her cat Fidèl.
Lore is our people planner and our number-one contact with all the agents. You could even say that she’s like a mom to our agents. She selects, interviews, trains and sends agents into the field. Are you interested in working as an Agent for Boris? Then don’t hesitate to send her a message!
Rachel is our project accountant. This tough lady keeps track of all expenses at Boris and everything that has to do with finance. Turn up that radio whenever there is some RnB or Hip-Hop playing and she will start singing along. You will definitely get to meet her if you work with us!
Stefan our production manager has his roots in the Netherlands. He is in charge of purchase & production at Boris and is in contact with all our suppliers. He has a great passion for fresh kicks, house music and getting you the best value for money.
The perfect son in law doesn't exi… wait…watch out mom's all over, he does exist. But he's already taken I'm afraid. I don't think we can come up with anyone who is nicer than Job. He's almost too nice. Except when it comes to work, then it's serious business and no messing around! Job is responsible for the entire field planning and making sure everything is build in the field as it should. With a great festival & Chiro background he's the one fit for this job. Job get's the job done. Imagine all the puns...
Behind every good warehouse stands a good warehouse manager. Bjorn keeps a tight ship and makes sure everything runs smoothly. Feel free to grab a coffee whenever you drop something off or pick something up.
The Wild Crafter
Mich is our man in the field. Just like ‘Bob’ there’s nothing that he can’t build. Going from huge festival stands to decorate beautiful bars, there’s nothing too big or too little for Mickey. With a great passion for art and graffiti he can give that extra touch to our projects.
The Wood Magician
Jaryth has a lot of wood… is good with wood. I mean he can build anything with wood. He’s like a lumberjack, but better. With his own awesome online wood construction shop he can make anything from a simple chair to a Casa Bacardi.
He also knows every line from South Park. Ask him to pronounce ‘spaghetti’.
Jordi has been a solid part of our field team and does it all with great pride. As his nickname ‘klak’ reveals, you will always see him with a cap on. If you see him driving around in the backstage of any festival, make sure to give him a shout for a ‘hello’ back.
Ian is a part of our field team. He might not be the biggest of the bunch but surely has a big Boris-heart. Always walking around with a large smile on his face and ready for a laugh or a good talk. In summer he’s in charge of many productions. Make sure to ask him about his favorite local hip-hop artists!
