Chase tribe keeps growing: meet Petra, Free, Valerie, Reda and Bart!
In challenging times like these, people focus on what matters the most: health, family, friends and safety. Having a support system where you feel understood and appreciated is crucial for human beings to adapt and persevere. Since we launched Chase, we always did our best to support our team and creatives, show respect, encourage individuality and promote open communication. These values became an essential part of our DNA. That is why, despite the ongoing crisis and uncertainty, our strong tribe keeps moving forward.
And what makes Chase team so great?
We are fortunate to work with some awesome creators, innovative rebels and urban storytellers who aren’t afraid of the unknown. Within Chase Music, Chase Creative and Chase Academy, we collaborate with many creative individuals who bring their knowledge and ideas to the table and share it with others within the community. Since the last few months, we are happy to welcome new members that brought fresh energy and specific skill sets that will optimize our workflow, create high-quality content and overall, help us and our clients achieve better results.
So, are you ready to meet our new superstars?
For Chase Creative:
FREE (ACCOUNT MANAGER)
What’s in a name? A lot when it comes to this force of nature.
Free is a creative soul who enjoys life to the fullest. She studied fashion styling and art direction in London, where she lived for 8 years. Since she came back to Belgium last year, she was searching for a job in a similar environment, and Chase was a perfect fit! Considering her previous work experience in the fashion industry and as a project manager, Free got an offer to become an Account Manager at Chase Creative. She grabbed the opportunity with both hands, as Chase was always on top of her “places-I’d-like-to-work-at” list.
Her responsibilities are quite extensive and cover everything regarding project management for Chase Creative clients. That includes creating, following up and checking the budgets, organizing meetings, and managing the communication between the client and the agency so the social media manager can focus on the operations.

PETRA (PODCAST PRODUCTION AND STORYTELLER)
Storytelling is an art and Petra is a craftswoman when it comes to creating stories.
Already a familiar face at Chase, Petra used to be a program manager for Chase Academy in the postgraduate Digital Content Creation course. She enjoyed motivating students to go after their (career) dreams, working with talented guest speakers and spreading her love for digital storytelling.
Since a few months ago, Petra switched her roles and now, as a freelancer, she works for Chase Creative clients, mostly on podcast production and story shaping. She believes every organization has something valuable to share. With a background as a communication professional in different industries, Petra finds it easy to relate to brands and help them create the right message that will be heard by the right audience. When she is not working, she loves to be on the beach, listening to the sound of North Sea – or a podcast, of course!

For Chase Music:
REDA (CONTENT CREATOR/SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER)
Urban music, lifestyle and fashion are key themes we cover at Chase Music, and our content creators live what they preach. Reda comes from Bruxelles where he launched his own clothing line BX.CULTURE for which he also manages social media platforms and e-commerce. As Jack of all trades, Reda worked for different non-profit organizations in various roles, from communication officer, coach, social media manager, to photographer and graphic designer.
With his training in digital marketing, Reda was a perfect match to manage Chase Music social media accounts and create engaging content. Next to that, he’ll also be a talent coach for a group of young content creators for Chase music.

VALERIE (TALENT COACH HASSELT)
Don’t be fooled by her laid back attitude, this girl has many aces up her sleeve.
Valerie started her journey with Chase first as an intern, and later on also as postgraduate Digital Content & Journalism at Chase Academy. With her journalism degree, Valerie’s work experience was mostly related to the radio; she worked at MNM, StuBru, and NRJ as a host and a digital producer. Valerie is also a DJ known as “Séa” who will make your booty shake with some funky, disco tunes.
Valerie is a coordinator at Chase Hasselt. She manages everything from photography, videography, event management and talent coaching, working specifically with the Stad Hasselt to activate and engage with local youth and promote the urban lifestyle and music.
For Chase Academy:

Born Ghentian, from an early age, Bart developed an obsession with everything involving audio, radio and music.

The following years, he worked behind the screens and scenes for MNM, één, Ketnet to eventually become a content-manager at Qmusic.
