Eimee V


Biography

I caught fire creating content.  

I always thought my dream was to become an average digital marketing Joe, sipping coffee while doing conventional work. It seemed like an appropriate dream having started my career at a young age doing digital marketing *stuff* even before it was a trend. But I’ve always known there’s more, and there was.

And that’s when it happened; I stumbled upon content marketing and that set my soul on fire. Since then, I can’t get enough. Content marketing calls to all my passions; it incorporates out-of-the-box creativity and data-driven problem-solving. What could be more fun than that?  

I love crafting strategies and connecting brands with their audience. This became the very foundation of my life’s mission, and that is to help companies find their voice and drive their ROI.

What companies have I helped so far? Saas providers and financial firms, non-profits, healthcare, and medical science firms.

Vanessa Villegas Neme
Senior Account Manager


Biography

Following my passion for creative strategy, I joined the Mach Media team as an account manager. Day to day, I manage client projects in the life sciences industry, creating deliverables, conducting research and writing copy.

I have an industrial design degree from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Colombia, as well as a diploma in digital marketing from ICESI. My professional career began as a marketing strategist with several creative agencies representing fashion brands in haute couture and jewelry. Before joining Mach Media, I previously worked as a project assistant and HR mobility coordinator for a major player in the automotive sector.

Throughout my life, I have worked and lived in Colombia, Mexico, the United States and France, but I now call Belgium my home. I love exploring the urban luxuries of metropolitan cities, but I equally enjoy discovering the quiet, remote corners of the world with nothing but a backpack and a good pair of boots. There are few things in life I enjoy more than meeting new, interesting people that are able to inspire me or just fill my curious mind with fun facts.

Teresa Stevens
Content Manager


Biography

After growing up on the (sometimes 😉) sunny south coast of the UK and living in Australia briefly, I’m now based in London with my partner, enjoying the hustle and bustle of city life and all the opportunities that come with having Europe on my doorstep!

As you would expect for the Content Manager here at Mach Media, I’m SUPER passionate about all things Content and Communications!

I love the satisfaction of seeing an idea come to life, and being a part of all the creative and strategic stages it passes.

With over 8 years’ experience in account management, events, and marketing, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a wide range of industries and company sizes. I enjoy nothing more than helping businesses achieve their goals and being a part of each unique teams’ achievements.

When I’m not exercising my creative side on content, you’ll find me at the gym, away on a city break or lost in a good book.

Søren Friis Larsen
Crisis, Issues and Reputation Management Expert


Biography

As an executive advisor specializing in communication and crisis management, I have been called upon countless times to offer live and urgent advice on managing pretty much any type of crisis from global product recalls, cyber-attacks, regulatory dawn raids, CEO or employee fraud, large-scale layoffs or medical malpractice to social media shit storms or false rumors in the press. I have been in many boardrooms and war rooms in the intense first hours of a crisis helping management make sense of the situation, gather as much reliable information as possible, play out critical scenarios, including worst-case, and deciding on a plan of action which always includes what, to whom, and how to communicate about the incident. I have designed and executed many crisis simulations and war games devised specifically to test and train organizations for when the storm hits.

Based on these experiences, I help companies, organizations, and senior executives prepare optimally ahead of time through risk assessment, planning, crisis management governance, issue mapping, stakeholder analysis, communication strategy, and executive and spokesperson training. Always favoring a proactive approach, I assist both newly appointed and long-established executives in building and managing their reputation and thought leader status, and I help organizations build credibility on the issues important to them which serves as a reputational moat around their brand, PR and marketing efforts.

When I am not working or networking with people smarter than myself (the vast majority of people I meet), I am a curious and voracious reader, enjoy competitive chess, and treasure the mental reset of a long run or bike ride.

Simon Chopier
Digital Strategist


Biography

As a digital strategist at Mach Media, I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to help companies maximize their return on investment by means of internet marketing. I focus on digital marketing trends and analyze how to effectively implement internet marketing strategies.

What started out as a hobby became my full-time job. I worked for several years within the digital industry and it taught me that simply trying something online doesn’t work. To quote: do or do not, there is no try. You need to raise the bar each day and your level of curiosity for new trends will determine your level of success.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in informatics, a master’s degree in commercial science and a second master’s degree in general management. It’s my belief that a day without learning is a day not lived. I am always open to new ideas and welcome new ways of thinking. In my private time, I participate in powerlifting and cardiovascular training. This has taught me a lot about discipline and that most importantly, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.

Rashmita Paul
Account Manager


Biography

As an account manager at Mach Media, I support our clients in translating their business goals and communication objectives into engaging narratives. Working alongside our rock star team of experts at Mach Media, I am the bridge to the client, ensuring all deliverables align with client expectations. I keep projects on track and manage every last detail so our clients and team leads can focus on what they do best.

I grew up in India and received a bachelor’s in economics from the University of Delhi and a Master of Business Administration in Marketing from ITM Business School in Bengaluru before starting my career in sales. As a sales professional, I worked for large organizations such as American Express and The Times of India Group before making a career switch toward marketing and communications. During this transition, I worked with a New Delhi-based startup that was building a new social media platform around health, lifestyle and wellness, and worked for a Belgium-based digital advertising agency before joining the Mach Media team.

Since moving to Belgium, I have learned French, completed a postgraduate certificate course in media economics from Vrije Universiteit Brussel, picked up new skills, made new connections and have learned to thrive in an unknown country, eventually calling it my adopted home. I spend my free time transitioning into the role of a “crazy plant lady,” exploring parks in and around Brussels and recreating tasty Indian recipes in my kitchen.

Hans Van Puyenbroeck
Account Manager


Biography

My upbringing has been strongly influenced by two countries: Belgium and the US. I was born in Belgium but raised in Arkansas. After graduating at Erasmushogeschool in the capital of Belgium with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism I dove into the world of marketing and communications. From corporate communications, social media strategy, newsletters, websites to video marketing – I’ve left no stones unturned in the marketing realm.

As a sportsman I have always felt a natural desire to do better and more – beyond ‘just’ winning. I carry this philosophy into my personal and professional life. As an Account Manager I want to do the same for our clients. I want to help them evolve, grow and find the best ways for them to achieve their goals.

In my free time you won’t find me sitting down too often. In recent years I’ve transitioned from playing basketball to coaching. I coach youth basketball (U16-U18) and assist for a seniors team. When I’m not coaching or taking coaching courses, I’m trying to stay fit so I can keep up with my two young daughters.
