PLEASED TO MEET YOU
Perlita is a leading expert on IT. Ever since the first PC appeared, she has been spotting PR opportunities no-one else could see. And she knows how to make the most of them. If not one way, then the other. In her role as Account Director, she remains closely involved in the agency’s day-to-day operations. That also enables her to share her in-depth knowledge and understanding of communications with her colleagues at MCS on a constant basis. Apart from work, Perlita loves the good things in life. She especially enjoys good food, shopping, and interesting travels. And her labrador can always count on her full attention.
PETER DE GROOT
Peter is the silent force behind MCS PR. As the agency’s cofounder, co-owner and Financial Director, he keeps the show on the road. So that the rest of the team can focus fully on servicing clients and media. For Peter, the ultimate pleasure is a good beef tenderloin or an Indonesian rice table. He also enjoys everything The Hague has to offer, especially a “Terrific” from sandwich shop Dootje. PR projects benefit from his creative mind.
MARGUERITE VAN DER HEIJDEN
As Senior PR Consultant, Carolien has more than a decade of experience working with organizations like NXP, Fox-IT, CGI, SanDisk, and Hitachi Data Systems. She develops and implements integrated social and mainstream media strategies, mainly for B2B clients. Her style can be characterized as a combination of solid strategic advice and a hands-on mentality. She is very active on social media herself, but without losing the personal contact she considers essential. Carolien loves taking to the kitchen, a good glass of wine in hand, to prepare a delicious meal for family or friends. And taking to the beach with her husband and beloved son.
HANS VAN RAAIJ
The media trainer and storyteller at MCS PR is called Hans. As a Senior Content Consultant, he knows how to make a technology message relevant by linking it to current social and economic developments. Hans challenges the client to join him in spotlighting their organization’s vision by devising very special stories about it. In his spare time, Hans composes music – with aid of computers, of course – and in the analog world he loves tweaking guitars and valve amplifiers.
