Le groupe Roularta reprend son souffle. #media #roeselaere #bruxelles

rick de nolf

Le 1er janvier dernier, Rik de Nolf cédait sa place de CEO à son beau-fils Xavier Bouckaert. A tout juste 66 ans, il prend la place de président, laissant la gestion des affaires courantes entre les mains du jeune Xavier.

Rik de Nolf expliquait à La Libre : “Je ne prends pas encore ma retraite ! (rires) Je deviens président exécutif de Roularta. Je resterai donc actif, en étant présent et à la disposition du CEO, du management et des équipes du groupe. Mais les affaires courantes, et les décisions qu’elles peuvent impliquer au quotidien, sont désormais du ressort de Xavier. Le patron, aujourd’hui, c’est lui.”

Bien qu’il ait décidé de consacrer plus de temps à son épouse et ses petits-enfants, Rik de Nolf entend redoubler d’efforts afin de développer les activités du groupe. Les défis qu’avaient suscité les activités décadentes de Roularta en France avaient plombé la marge de manœuvre de Rik de Nolf. Il pourra désormais se consacrer à l’essor des activités numériques du groupe.

Eerste stappen van HTV, de tweetalige tv kanaal die Michael Abizdid in het leven heeft geroepen en die van immobilien een aantrekkelijk item zal maken, samen met nieuws en entertainement.

Het begrip « tweetalige tv kanaal », nieuw en revolutionair in Belgïe werd voorgesteld door de stichter van HTV.

« Onze TV kanaal wil onze Belgïe van vandaag weerspeigelen: positief, modern, innovatif, open voor ondernemingen en nieuwe trendsen. », aldus Michael Abizdid, CEO van HTV

HTV heeft zijn begrip « tweetalige tv kanaal » getest in de studios van Videohouse. Dit heeft aangetoond dat een tweetalige tv kanaal in het leven roepen mogelijk en uitdagend is.  Een tv kanaal die alle Belgen verenigt rond gezamenlijke waarden en bekende figuren. Een van die gezichten is Ann De Baetzelier, gewezen Miss Belgïe die zolang actief was bij VTM (10 om te zien), altijd charmant en efficient en die onze kijkers zonder twijfel enorm zullen apprecieren.

Didier Reynders advocates media freedom and safety of journalists

Reynders

Today is the first International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists*. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders reiterates Belgium’s commitment to promote freedom of expression and media freedom, online and offline. Respect for this fundamental right is indispensable for individual dignity and fulfilment, and is an essential foundation for democracy, rule of law, peace and stability. Through their work, journalists help safeguard the fundamental values ​​of our democracy by keeping those in power accountable to citizens. Citizens need to have unimpeded access to information to have a say in a democracy. Unfortunately, the critical role of journalists and media is too often undermined by intimidation and violence. Sometimes journalists even pay with their lives for the work they do.

Didier Reynders calls upon authorities everywhere to take real steps to track down and prosecute those who commit crimes against journalists. Last year, Belgian diplomacy took initiatives to protect journalists in Somalia, Syria and other countries in the world where it is difficult for the media workers to do their job. Last week the Belgian delegation to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations in Geneva advocated for media freedom in two countries that presented their human rights balance sheet to the international community.

For Minister Reynders, it is important that Belgium and the EU continue to advocate freedom of the media and safety of journalists in bilateral contacts, both in a European and global context, and in regional and international organisations, including the United Nations, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Council of Europe. Our country will assume the presidency of the latter organisation from November 13th. Belgium will also promote media freedom and safety of journalists in this capacity.

Culture and creativity abound in Brussels, with more than 17,000 events a year reflecting the
wealth and depth that the city has to offer. The BRUSSELS CREATIVE FORUM offers the
