About Corneel Maes
After 15 years of in-house communications experience at international stock listed companies such as Fortis and AB Inbev, I moved to the consultancy side of the business in 2004 – as I joined Porter Novelli (www.porternovelli.be) in Brussels.
As an external communications counsel I specialize in financial reporting, crisis communications, change management and reorganisation issues. Crisis management includes preparedness planning (risk mapping, early warning signals identification, crisis manual and processes), training & simulations, and actual crisis communications support.
My previous in-house career has helped me build a comprehensive background in strategic communications advice and issues management throughout the various development phases of listed companies (IPO, growth strategies, M&A, consolidations, corporate restructurings, etc).
In my spare time I enjoy travelling and spending weekends in the country side of the Ardennes. I am a fan of specialty beers – of which we have a great offering in Belgium – and I continue to improve my skills in wild water fishing.
Porter Novelli International today is one of the top five global brands in public relations, and forms part of the Omnicom group of companies.
