CHRISTIAAN RUESINK

Christiaan is a journalist loving brands. That’s an unusual combination, it makes him an outsider in both worlds, looking from a different perspective. Where brands most of the time are sending their information through their channels, Christiaan asks himself: what is it that audiences want? How can we touch them by not only telling them a good story but also a true story? That’s what brand journalism is about. In this age of transparency, Christiaan believes brands have to be true and credible.

He is an experienced journalist, working almost 25 years for AD in different areas. He started there as a trainee and ended up as the editor- in-chief, responsible for the whole news brand, building it from a print-based to a digital-based company. Later, he spent 2 years at Voetbal International, where he introduced the online platform VI PRO before he started with The Story Machine, a part of the creative agency J. Walter Thompson.
