Tim Van Achte, one of PM’s longest standing employees, is off the payroll and into the PM’s pool of freelancers. After having collaborated with Managing Partner Stijn Pieters for over half of their lives (20 years!) Tim has signed up for a challenging career at the ‘Foresight’ team of Digipolis, City of Ghent. Tim realises that this might leave some of his contacts with a question: what about the PM contributions and ongoing projects?
Tim: “Well, becoming part of PM’s pool of freelance consultants, I am able to continue the activities that I have come to love at PM, be it under a reduced time investment. I intend to keep up the good work: perform sentiment analysis for PM clients in need, collaborating on PM’s newest innovations (such as the Zombie Crisis Game), even working with the team on the business development side of things, … Yes, I want to witness how the PM story evolves and I am going to continue contributing to the various specialisms I’ve become notorious for after all those years. It shouldn’t stop here. Together with PM I intend to further develop the field of sentiment and perception analysis, social media and tools in crises, crisis intelligence, etc.
