Sylvia Avontuur CEO / founder
Inspired by the ever-evolving world of PR & branding, I have gained a deeper understanding of design thinking and inside-out strategies over the years. I thrive in innovative environments that enable me to guide durable brands in their journey – from strategic PR, content marketing to trans-medial storytelling and influencer campaigns. And what better place to do so than at Press Only, the PR agency I have founded more than 20 years ago. By consistently offering creative & strategic PR to our partners we have been building a sustainable portfolio of brands in various segments. For more about my insights please have a look at my articles.
Guen de Mello PR Manager Fashion
Quality is key in this business, and during my years at Press Only I have been building durable relationships with media, influencers and the brands I work with. It is great to see hard work paying off and being reflected in the media attention I generate for the key-accounts I manage. Whether I am organizing an event, helping out starting creators with their story or pitching the latest to tale journalists, I naturally take a durable, personal approach with a focus on content.
Tania Bongers Brand + PR Consultant
Working as PR manager at International organizations has taught me a great deal about branding & fashion/corporate PR. After a master study in Brand & Reputation Management, I decided to switch to a local PR agency to broaden my experience. What I like best at Press Only is the high quality of work, and the diversity of the brands within the agency. Some of our clients are very fashion or design-minded, whilst other focus on innovation & sustainability, or travels to exotic places. Experienced in both corporate as agency PR I have a clear understanding of what our clients expect, and how to create successful media- strategies.
Esmée van den Boom PR Manager Lifestyle
One of the things I love most about my job is balancing the dynamics between the on- and offline world. I have learned the tricks of trade of PR at a high-end luxury womenswear label in New York. I am closely following the developments of the media landscape in order to organize successful media campaigns and to make the perfect match between influencers and our brands. Simultaneously, I love planning an offline event, shop opening or collection launch since that creates the opportunity to connect with media creators and social media rockstars. I love interacting with people, brainstorm about options and possibilities and to turn ideas into actions.
Lonneke Reitsma Online Visibility PR Consultant
The Internet revolution created powerful search engines. If you think about the most obvious way we encounter brands –online- media and PR should be considered as the foundation. By carefully integrating search techniques like social engagement, tags and link building, when developing a story at the beginning of the communication cycle brands are able to directly influence search behaviour. With a love for and education in fashion and lifestyle, I am determined to connect and guide media creators and brands in that quest for visibility. Want to find out more about ways to master and build search?
Tessa de Wit Showroom Manager Fashion
When it comes to the showroom, I am determined to create an approachable vibe in our fashion PR Agency Amsterdam. Working with open walk-in hours, it is important that stylists & journalists feel free to come by for a drink to view our latest brands. I truly enjoy playing around in finding the right item matches. Our showroom is open for press from Monday to Friday from 9.30 till 18.00 hrs. Looking forward to showing your all the brands at our beautiful venue at the Prinsengracht 715.
Morene Dekker Sports PR Consultant
Effort, perseverance, endurance, desire, bliss-sports cause a range of emotions that contribute to our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Being a sports coach, I have always felt the need to guide others through that emotional journey. Although, there are many ways to pitch a story, in my experience as a PR consultant, sweating it out in real life is the best way to introduce media creators to the latest sport trends and innovations. By sharing an unfamiliar sport activity and introducing suitable items, I get to keep storytellers on the forefront while doing what I love.
