Saatchi & Saatchi Brussels' Dream Team is Ready

Brussels - With the arrival of Matthieu De Winter as Client Service Director and Alexander Cha'ban as a second creative director, Saatchi & Saatchi Brussels has underlined its position as one of the most ambitious advertising agencies in Belgium.

"It's the desire to always excel, that makes this agency so attractive to me," says Matthieu De Winter, former Client Service Director at Duval Guillaume Antwerp. "Both the work and the people here are bright, fresh and extremely result-driven. And then there's the ambitious network that's behind us. You really feel part of a strong big entity."

Alexander Cha'ban, who created many award winning campaigns for agencies such as Famous, Boondoggle and Duval Guillaume Brussels, is especially enthusiastic about the intelligence of the work. "For a few years, approximately since my colleague Jan Teulingkx started working here, a breath of fresh air has been blowing through the creative department of Saatchi & Saatchi," says Cha'ban. "The agency appears on all the major shortlists and has won awards at the most important national and international competitions - and this with work for almost all their clients and across a range of different categories."

Alexander's former teammate Vanessa Hendrickx will also join the creative department as of November.

CEO Marc Michils is very proud of the completion of his dream team. "At the head of every department we now have extremely talented people with a true passion for the communication business.  There are no more excuses not to achieve our ambitions: We will give all our clients the best service, we will be among the best agencies in Belgium and we will be the best Saatchi & Saatchi agency in Europe."
