Bert Marievoet
Country Lead Twitter Belgium
Bert Marievoet spent his last decade figuring out how to make digital advertising work best for local and global brand advertisers. He did this at Proximus, Skynet and De Persgroep. Besides that, Marievoet became intrigued by the rise of social media ‒ which started to infiltrate both his personal and professional life, probably more than he was willing to admit. However, there was one platform that captivated him in a way no other one had ever done before, that was Twitter. Marievoet’s mission is to help companies and their brands understand how to get the most out of Twitter.
