DDB welcomes new talents

DDB Brussels is proud to introduce their new employees. Laura and Hans will reinforce the VW team and Bellina is joining us as an account executive for IKEA and BASE.

New social media manager, Laura Bertone joins DDB


Laura is 30 years old and has a cat, but also a husband. She loves photography so much she studied it before spending six years in sales support and marketing at Nikon Benelux. Before that, she also studied to be a kindergarten teacher but that’s a completely different story. She learned to play the piano for nine years but doesn’t play much these days as she prefers to travel, with her reflex camera of course. Laura will work within the Volkswagen team as the new social media manager. Welcome!

DDB proudly presents Bellina Dams, our new client producer


After studying communication and marketing in her hometown of Leuven, Bellina gained experience at Nu Skin in Zaventem as a marketing communication coordinator; and later worked two years for Actito, a company specialized in marketing automation where she was responsible for managing CRM projects. At DDB, she will reinforce the IKEA-team. During her free time, she likes sports, cooking and exploring new restaurants (might be a link right there). Welcome, Bellina!

Hans Michiels is back at DDB


He started to work at DDB as an Account Intern, back in 2011. After 2,5 years at FamousGrey, he finally returned home. Welcome back, Hans Michiels. We missed you.
Hans returns as a Client Producer on Volkswagen. After a quick trip to FamousGrey, where he worked on IXINA, COIB, 2BE & Ketnet, he’s happy to return where he belongs. Hans lives in the centre of Brussels and fills his free time with good food, indoor soccer, snowboarding and champagne parties on the stands of RSCA Anderlecht.
