Alexandre de Haan joins Design is Dead

New Client Service Director boosts digital agency’s senior sales and Adobe power

Design is Dead in Brussels welcomes senior digital and Adobe expert Alexandre De Haan as its new Client Service Director. After 18 months as Managing Partner at TBSCG, Alexandre accepted this new challenge, recognising a clear match with the ‘Agile Guides in Digital Journeys’. He joins the fast-growing company’s sales team and will lead its service delivery for a major new client.

A positive vibe delivers results

Alexandre De Haan:

“Many people talk about enthusiasm, empowering online teams, and results. But Design is Dead simply makes it happen. This team has a sparkling positive vibe, that attracts new clients and talented colleagues, and creates real business impact. I feel right at home here and look forward to sharing my project management and Adobe skills for new and existing clients.”

A homecoming in his career

For Alexandre, his new job at Design is Dead feels like a homecoming. He worked for over a decade at Emakina.BE, a sister agency inside Emakina Group, where he held e-business, web building and sales management roles. This broad background allows him to easily reconnect with the experts in that agency, for shared know-how and common project development.

Broad management and hands-on experience

Alexandre De Haan, 46, is a Master of Science (MSc) in e-Business from HEC Montreal. The Belgian-Canadian is at home both in the board room and on the production floor. He successfully managed multiple digital projects from inception to completion, activation and maintenance.

His track record includes B2C, B2B and corporate challenges, marketing and brand communication, mobile, gaming, HR, training and CRM initiatives. His clients included ACV - CSC, Aéroports de Montréal, Aeromexico, Bombardier, Brussels Airlines, Delhaize, Ergo Insurance, Puratos and Total.

Jeroen Huys, MD of Design is Dead, concludes:

“Alexandre has loads of experience. We go way back; our first joint project was an innovative web platform, over 10 years. He delivers tailored answers for many sectors, driven by objectives and top results. In our team he will be able to further combine his flair for clear business ideas and strategy with his technology knowledge of Adobe Experience Cloud, Custom Web Applications, Insights and automation.”
