Hi, Seb here, co-founder of PressPage. I wrote this small blog post because I’ve got some exciting news to share that affects me personally and is a big step for PressPage.

What a journey it's been so far! From the early days of challenging the PR and media relations industry with a fresh view on simplifying workflow efficiency, effectiveness, and measurability. To today with a solid foundation and hundreds of the best-known global brands who use PressPage daily for their corporate comms and PR work.

Last week, Jan-Willem Schalkwijk officially took the helm at PressPage as our new CEO, and he will drive the next phase of PressPage growth.

We – myself and co-founders Tim and Bart – are convinced that this is the best for PressPage. We are certain our company has reached a phase where it needs a more experienced leader to scale and move it forward.

Jan-Willem is an energetic, team-oriented, humble, and focused leader who brings a wealth of software industry, scale-up, and commercial experience to PressPage. Our team is excited to have him on board.

At PressPage, we have always been driven by our customers and how to make their work easier and more impactful for them. Together we created a customer and team-focused work environment, and it is the perfect time for a new CEO to come in and build on this using their experience and fresh perspective. 

As for myself, I will support Jan-Willem in the coming period and remain an actively involved shareholder. 

I am looking forward to our next phase with Jan-Willem and the PressPage team!

Seb
