HELLO, I'M STIJN
SKILLED MARKETER WITH THE
DRIVE OF AN ATHLETE
If you ask my friends, family and former colleagues to describe me, they would describe me as: enthusiastic, empathetic, reliable, problem-solver, structured, analytical and always positive.
My broad field of interest and expertise, natural empathy and analytical view on things allow me to quickly understand business challenges in various contexts & industries.
Next to my passion for marketing, I am a sports enthusiast. You will find me regularly on my racing bike, in my running shoes or with a tennis racket. My master thesis on sports marketing, my role as coordinator of mass running events and my job as marketing manager of the Quick-Step cycling team allowed me to combine both passions.
"I never lose.
Either I win or I learn."
Did Nelson Mandela have a hidden growth marketing mindset?
MY JOURNEY AS A
MARKETER & ENTREPRENEUR
After obtaining a Masters' Degree in Sports Management at Ghent University (cum laude) and a Masters' Degree in Marketing Management at Vlerick Business School (magna cum laude), I have had the opportunity to develop myself as a marketing consultant at The House of Marketing through various projects. Furthermore, after multiple guest lectures about inbound marketing & marketing automation, a passion for public speaking emerged.
The strategic and operational baggage I got at a rapid pace was of gold value for my next challenge: building the marketing team at Energy Lab, a fast-paced Belgian scale-up. In concrete terms, we developed:
B2C and B2B marketing based on well-considered and action-oriented strategy,
Communication strategies and campaigns created and implemented for business customers,
Impactful brand activation initiatives for our clients.
Coming from an entrepreneurial family and with the profound expertise gathered along my career so far, I started working as an independent full-stack marketer in August 2020.
"There is no traffic on the extra mile."
That's why I enjoy riding there.
SO, HIRING ME EQUALS HIRING...
... a dynamic and results-oriented full-stack marketer with a mission to improve business results through effective marketing and sales strategies, while always putting your business objective first.
... a digital native with a passion for finding digital solutions to help accelerate processes and tackle your marketing more efficiently, so that we can focus on what matters the most: results.
... an expert who always strives to create a lasting positive impact on you and your company.
