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 Bacardi & Alken-Maes. 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.
The Chief Agent
We introduced Maaike, our People Planner to the BORiS-team by sending her with 13 strangers into the mountains of Mayrhofen. A teambuilding that she won’t easily forget, we are sure. Right from the get go Maaike unfolds herself as a true Chief Agent and the go-to-person for all our agents (and non-agents.) Need someone to talk to? Don't hesitate to chat with her on Facebook!
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...
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’.
Scrolan aka 'The Tank'. And we are sure he has a licence to drive one too. The first in line to drive our BORiS fleet to location and to manage build-ups and break downs of many of our projects. With a passion for trucks, motorcycles and anything in between, he's the one to represent BORiS on the road, as in literally, on the road. Honk 2 times for him if you see one of our trucks driving! You can't miss them.
You see that we spelled joker with so many o’s? That’s because he’s from the Limburg. Always ready for a good joke, but he tells them a little bit slower than normal. Matthias is a field guru making sure everything is build with great precision. You can find him in the summer on a lot of different festivals building the 2017 Jack Daniels festival stand with his team. Glad he builds faster than he talks.
The Warehouse Daddy
Leather jacket, fast bikes and keeping a thight warehouse. But don't let looks deceive you. Thierry is actively involved in some great charity and community causes for children. During the working hours he looks after the ever so busy warehouse of BORiS, making sure everything goes out the door as it should. Say hello whenever you drop something of!
