About PM • Risk Crisis Change

PM was founded by Stijn Pieters and Dr. Hugo Marynissen in 1999 as a full-service communication agency specialised in crisis communications. Together with Tim Van Achte they decided to focus entirely on integrated crisis related services after being involved in the crisis management and crisis communication of a major gas explosion in 2004. Robbert Meulemeester joined the team in 2016, Wim Uyttenhove in 2017, Julien Draillard Losada and Dr. Mike Lauder in 2018. In 2019 the team further expanded, welcoming Pieter-Michiel Vermaut, Kim De Raedt and Jeroen Brugge.

We are on a mission to improve crisis preparedness on four levels: individual, team, organisation and society. Every day our team members are involved in numerous activities related to crisis management that range from training, teaching, researching and writing to applying our practical expertise and scientific insights in acute real life situations. We are specialised in the coordination and execution of crisis management strategies that integrate the policy making process, strategic crisis communication and the coordination of operational response actions. Our goal is to prepare organisations for crisis management, and above all help them face crises with our advice and support!

Below you will find some examples of the numerous cases during which we provided our services. Due to the confidential nature of our work we cannot provide details about the content of the completed projects. However, for some cases we can share our experiences! Detailed information about these crises can be found on our blog and our lists of publications and presentations & lectures.
