About us

Castro is a reference to the Castro neighborhood in San Francisco, one of the most tolerant neighborhoods in the world, in one of the favourite cities of our founders Stefan de Bruijn and Frits Huffnagel. A city whose abbreviation, SF, matches the first letters of their first names.

Team Castro


Castro Communicatie has an extensive network in the media and government. We regularly organise activities for our network. Every quarter, Castro Invites are held for clients and acquaintances. An interesting speaker shines his or her light on a particular topic.

On Jan. 15, 2020, we organised "Castro 1 Year," with Femke Halsema and Mark Rutte as guest speakers.

On May 15, 2023, we celebrated "Castro - Four More Years. We had our clients, friends and acquaintances vote on a new four-year term. The result was overwhelmingly positive, which is why we are happy to continue for four years.

During this evening we also announced our partnership with New Balls Please. Together we organise corporate events under the name New Balls Please Amsterdam.

Friday, September 8, 2023 the new district chairman Amélie Strens of Amsterdam-Centrum opened our new office at Czaar Peterstraat in Amsterdam! Many thanks to everyone who attended our opening. And especially also to Annemarie van Gaal, who told an inspiring story about entrepreneurship.

For those who have not yet seen our new office: feel free to stop by soon. We look forward to welcoming you at Czaar Peterstraat 109!
