About SPJ

SPJ was founded in 1986 and is a communications agency specialising in financial and corporate communications. Our team has a strong background in communications and financial and economic journalism. Founded on this extensive experience, we help companies tell the story behind the numbers. We do this both for Dutch companies with growth ambitions and international listed and non-listed companies that want to get a foot on the ground in the Netherlands.

 

Reducing complex issues to their essence is the core of our work. This enables companies to tell their distinctive story in a clear and comprehensible manner – in different ways and to different target groups.

 

Our involvement extends from strategic advice to practical implementation services relating to financial reports, mergers, acquisitions, IPOs, reorganisations, crisis situations and legal issues. We can act quickly and are personally committed to our clients who can count on us for reliable and top-quality advice.

 

We regularly work internationally in close collaboration with our partner agencies that are members of the AMO Partnership, a global network of communications agencies with leading positions in their home markets.
