December 17, 2018
Judi Seebus, Editor-in-Chief of real estate trade publication PropertyEU is to join Bellier, the Anglo-Dutch communications group operating in European financial, real estate and corporate markets, as a Director with effect from February 2019.
Steve Hays, Co-founding Managing Director of Bellier, said: “Bellier has had a long and close professional working relationship with Judi, who is one of the most experienced and best-connected journalists in the European real estate markets. We are confident that she will make a strong contribution to the growth of the business, not only in real estate, but also across the diverse industry sectors and pan-European markets Bellier covers.”
Australian-born Judi Seebus founded PropertyEU in Amsterdam in 2006, around the same time that Bellier was established in the city, and has worked as Editor-in-Chief since then, writing and moderating events on a vast range of topics covering all disciplines and segments in the real estate industry. She was also the founding editor of Top100 Investors, RetailWatch and Firestarters, a new magazine on PropTech. Judi previously worked for the Dutch financial daily FD and speaks and writes fluently in Dutch.
Judi Seebus, said: “Bellier was the natural choice for the next step in my career. I’ve always felt a deep respect for their writing skills, industry knowledge and integrity in dealings with the media. The agency’s broad base of high-profile real estate clients across European markets, which overlaps with my own journalistic network, was another draw.”
Alongside its boutique pan-European real estate communications practice, Bellier is also the largest public relations agency by client AUM in the €1.0 trillion Dutch institutional investment sector, the second-largest private pensions market in Europe.
In the UK, Bellier is partnered with Bulletin, the communications agency known for its impressive roster of clients and high-quality content creation for the investment industry and academic institutions. Bellier is also allied with Feldhoff & Cie, the top-rated real estate communications agency in Germany, and with Watatawa in Singapore for the Asia-Pacific markets. For North American markets, Bellier has a representative office in Washington DC.
