Work Areas

From protecting the organisation’s strategic intent to operational response on the field, the five work areas in our integral approach enable an organisation-wide perspective on crisis preparedness and resilience. Our framework activates every level of your organisation to build in the right capacities not only for detecting crises, but also to avoid them, handle them efficiently when they turn up unexpectedly, or even to turn some crises into opportunities.

About Us

PM was founded by Stijn Pieters and Dr. Hugo Marynissen in 1999 as a full service communication agency specialized in crisis communications. Together with Tim Van Achte they decided to focus entirely on integrated crisis management services after a major incident in 2004 where they acted as strategic advisors. In 2016, Robbert Meulemeester joined after being involved with PM and its services for several years. The team invested a lot time, energy, and means in executive and specialized education. We believe the best way to serve our clients is turning peer reviewed, state of the art scientific research into practical frameworks and applicable methodologies.

PM brings together a high level team consisting of preferred partners and specialized freelancers for each project. We hold our partners and freelancers in high regard and value them for their management skills, relevant expertise, scientific background, far stretched network, teaching qualities and their motivation and personal belief in making the world a more resilient place.

All of the PM team members are seasoned crisis management experts and understand the culture of many different countries, sectors and organizations. Most of our experiences has been acquired in the following sectors: energy, chemical, industrial, health, food, transportation, finance, governments, and authorities.
