Lies Taerwe

Managing Director THoM

I am an ambitious and energetic person with love for both people and marketing. I have a strong passion for making brands grow and win through strategic marketing thinking. I get my energy from helping and enabling people and businesses to achieve their goals. I am a strong and empathic leader, but I also love to achieve results as member of a team.  I value open communication and mutual trust as key cornerstones in business.

Do what you love. People with passion can change the world.
