Five Oh is the creative music PR agency founded by Lætitia Van Hove in 2016. Today it represents a whole range of Belgian and international artists as well as musical projects of all styles and genres. The Five Oh team is known in the industry for its creative approach and broad network. Those in the scene know Five Oh only represents projects it believes in, hence its credible reputation.
Five Oh offers a wide range of promotional services, from press representation for online and print coverage, and on underground as well as national radio stations, to general marketing campaigns in select territories, and even a specialized representation for Belgian projects in France. Five Oh always aims to build a custom campaign based on the client’s goals and needs.
Laetitia is the founder of Five Oh, the creator of Fifty Session, the co-creator of Fifty Lab and the mother of the house.
Laetitia Van Hove has more than 10 years of experience in the music industry, working for major EMI MUSIC for 7 years before moving to Paris to work for an independent label and subsequently moving back to Brussels to set up her own structure now called Five Oh.
Her experience as promotion manager as well as product manager make her the perfect person to strategically build an artist’s profile and career. Addicted to social networks and streaming platforms, and always curiously looking into new evolutions, her approach offers a digital strategy as well as classic media representation, with a network extending from underground to national press, including the most influential Belgian tastemakers.
At EMI, she worked as Product and Promotion Manager for artists such as Coldplay, Lenny Kravitz, David Guetta, Sigur Ros, Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, Julien Clerc, Alain Souchon, Raphael, Indochine and many others.
As founder of Five Oh, she worked with artists such as Angèle, Roméo Elvis, Indochine, Flavien Berger, Bagarre, Petit Biscuit, Tim Dup, Yseult, Lous and The Yakuza, Odezenne, BRNS, Ozark Henry, Brigitte, PNL, Flume, … and many others.
Laetitia also created the Fifty Session concept, a trendsetting Brussels based private event presenting emerging artists, and is co-creator of Fifty Lab, the international showcase festival that takes place every year in Brussels.
Sebastien is the digital guru of Five Oh and was the very first addition to the team, making him the OG project manager in the office.
While studying for a Master’s degree in Public Relations at IHECS, Sébastien Desprez took his first professional steps as a communications assistant at Fuse for three years. With his Master’s degree in hand, he joined the world of start-ups and quickly became digital marketing manager for Qualifio, a company based in Louvain-La-Neuve that operates in the field of media and data collection.
All the while, he stayed active in the music business, managing the bookings of Belgian dj DC Salas and the tour management of the group Ulysse. Eager to devote himself entirely to the industry, Sébastien officially joined the Five Oh team in 2017. Next to that, he occasionally teaches digital marketing to students from EFJ Bordeaux/Paris, IHECS or the Louvain School of Management.
Seb’s profound experience in digital marketing allows him to bring the creative touch when developing campaigns with media partners, building a strong profile for the artists and music events represented by Five Oh.
Marianne is a sucker for structure and has a thing for efficiency. Combine that with a hunger for challenge and an insatiable thirst for music, and you got yourself an excellent bilingual project manager.
During her years of professional experience in PR and production for the art & theatre world, Marianne Cattoir started a side career as a part of the female DJ duo Catwar & Lilihell. Passion turned into profession pretty quickly with bookings for Lokerse Feesten, All Eyes On Hip Hop, Les Ardentes, Couleur Café, Dour… and a series of own nightlife concepts.
Catwar & Lilihell is represented by Kurious, one of Belgium’s biggest booking agencies, which led to yet another side career in the music business. Kurious asked Marianne to join the team as a booking agent, she represented acts like Rachel Green, DJ Vega, JazzDee, Bibi Seck and Yooth.
In 2019, Marianne joined the Five Oh team as the bilingual force, with a nose for creative talent and a heart for running productions. You’ll especially see her in her element during high-paced events, creative brainstorms or other big challenges. When the pressure is on, Marianne is there!
Sacha is the office centipede; whether it’s creating nice visuals for social media, radio plugging the newest indie artist, or making sure a Five Oh production runs smoothly, she is your girl.
With a Master in Journalism, specialized in magazines and photography, Sacha Estelles is known for her unfailing knowledge of the Belgian media landscape. Always on the lookout for the freshest musical news, exciting collaborations, and new events and venues all over Brussels, she is up to speed with what’s happening before it hits the public.
Sacha has the habit of watching video clips on repeat, while binging her thirst for musical knowledge on social media and streaming platforms. Her high energy and critical quick spirit make her into the most mature junior you’ll ever meet.
Renaldi joined Five Oh as a flying publicist and was too charming to let go. She works aside Marianne as part of the multilingual team, proving her added value in several projects.
Having an open, curious character is what landed Renaldi Diombo several internships in Fashion (Christian Wijnants, Arte Antwerp), PR (Oona Agency) and International Business (Flanders Investment & Trade), all while studying marketing and communications.
Somehow she always succeeded to network her way into professional endeavors. These last years Renaldi got into the universe of online and print media, working at Charlie Magazine as a polyvalent executive, handling video production, editorials as well as press relations. Her active social lifestyle led her into the music scene of Brussels and everything around Five Oh. She lost her heart to the vibe of the capital so she did not hesitate to put her trilingual skills to the test as the newest addition to the Five Oh team.
