One To Watch

Maxus Belgium named as the only media agency

in Europe’s best ‘Ones to Watch’ list

21 FEBRUARY 2018

Maxus Belgium has been named as ‘One to Watch’ in Europe in a list of business excellence published by the European Business Awards sponsored by RSM. The media agency was chosen as it demonstrates exceptional achievement in the category ‘Workplace and People Development’ and reflects the programme’s core values of innovation, success and ethics.

Maxus Belgium is proud to be part of both GroupM, the world's #1 global media investment management group, and WPP, the world's largest communications services group. They embrace technology and innovation, challenging their clients to move forwards by helping them and leading them into change. Els Thielemans (Maxus’ CEO) is convinced that the real opportunity for media, via their leading change philosophy, is to be human in a digital world.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, Europe’s largest cross-sector business competition, said: “We wanted to recognise more widely the many incredible business success stories from across Europe. The talent, dedication and innovation at the heart of these companies creates jobs and opportunity, and is what drives their country’s prosperity. The ‘Ones to Watch’ lists will set a benchmark of success for the European business community.”

Maxus Belgium will now have the chance to compete in the category ‘Workplace and People Development’ of the European Business Awards to become a National Winner in their country. If successful, they will then take part in the grand final in May 2018, where the final 12 European winners will be announced. Next to that, they will also have the chance to enter a PUBLIC VOTE based on the video below, and become the European Public Champion.
