Proud arrival

Marcel Withoos strengthens NewsLab

Now that the amazing summer months are over, we still have some good news for you: Marcel Withoos (28) has been added to the NewsLab team. He will work as a PR advisor for clients such as ABN AMRO, Bavaria, Jumbo and Nederlandse Loterij. In addition, he will deal with the marketing and external initiatives of NewsLab itself.

In the past 3.5 years Withoos worked at Coopr as a PR Consultant and gained extensive experience on both Dutch and international clients, such as OnePlus, Uber, IENS, Siemens and Warsteiner. In addition to his PR and marketing activities for clients, he also coordinated Coopr Academy, an Honors Program in collaboration with Erasmus University Rotterdam. Before Coopr, Withoos worked at the international agencies Weber Shandwick and Edelman.

Talitha Dirkzwager, Managing Director at NewsLab, about the arrival of Withoos: “We are very pleased with the addition of Marcel to our team. Not only is he a talented PR Advisor, he is also the person to pick up and initiate many initiatives at the agency besides the work for our clients. He will therefore play a substantial role in our own marketing. We look forward to working with Marcel on the renewed NewsLab.”

Withoos: “NewsLab offers me the opportunity and freedom to do what I like best: to determine the best communication strategy together with the awesome customers and ultimately to implement it together with my colleagues from start to finish. Through my many conversations with Talitha I know that NewsLab is a nice mix of up-and-coming talent and experienced PR professionals. I am very happy to get started and am really looking forward to further developing myself and the agency by focusing on a mix of good customer work, new business and our own NewsLab initiatives.”
