Founder & CEOAlmost 35 years ago, "Thieu" as insiders call him, founded Big Media Group, the mother company of The European Times. Slowly Thieu built this company to becoming the entity that it is today. With numerous television production companies in its network and with worldwide coverage, Big Media Group strategically joined with Media Plus Holding in 2000 to become a world player. The European Times Magazine was launched as a premier European business and economic magazine and the exclusive distributor for the European Parliament and European Commission in both Brussels, the capital of the EU and Strasbourg. The European Times has become a global media player thanks to the leadership and business acumen of Thieu Cuypers. Every day Thieu leads the company with the same passion that he demonstrated in the early days of his career. “I will never retire” is a phrase he repeats quite frequently. Having visited more than 150 countries and conversed with numerous high-end business and political leaders, Thieu exudes pride when he describes the diversity of personalities, enterprises and governments that have been featured in The European Times.DirectorFrom day to day, you can find Patrick next to Thieu in the Board of Directors. With a background in mental healthcare where Patrick practiced as a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and substance abuse specialist, he started his own company in The Netherlands and was also a partner in a mental healthcare hospital overseas. When their paths crossed, the decision to collaborate forces and work together was made. With his qualities in entrepreneurship, management and excellent people skills, his participation will surely contribute to making The European Times an even better company that will continue to develop and fulfill its potential.
