T. Bech-Hansen is run by freelance journalist Thomas Bech Sørensen-Hylle (Brussels correspondent and member of the Danish Association of Journalists).


From my base in Brussels, I deliver journalism in genres such as interviews, features, background articles, news and more. Subject areas are most often business, culture, politics and abroad. Covering EU matters from the heart of Europe is central to my work, however I often venture into other areas both thematically and geographically.

I have more than 10 years of experience from home and abroad within journalism and corporate communication. Education from the London School of Journalism (Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism) and Aarhus University (BA in English and Communication and MA Corporate Communications).

Among the results can be mentioned a number of articles for the largest Danish newspapers and magazines (Jyllands-Posten, Politiken, Euroman etc.) as well as niche media (Dagens Byggeri and Maskinbladet) plus nationwide campaigns for the Ministry of Education, press handling in relation to Brexit for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and editorial management of a number of print and online magazines.

What’s in a name?

August 2018 was a landmark month. I had my first child and I got married. Perhaps less decisive, but as a natural consequence of that and necessary to explain in the present context, I changed my surname from Bech Hansen to Bech Sørensen-Hylle. Therefore, my name is both Bech Hansen and Bech Sørensen-Hylle in the bylines I link to from this website. But it’s all me.

Back to the story: My grandfather Gustav founded the company G. Bech-Hansen in 1940. The West Jutland business sold agricultural machinery and, later on, cars. In 1970, my father Holger became part of the business, which he continued until his retirement in 2010. The name T.Bech-Hansen is thus a loving nod in the direction of the family history, and the logo suggests the curved style that was popular around the time when Gustav Bech Hansen started out.

The values are also worth continuing: It’s about honesty, thoroughness, quality and satisfied customers – I believe this goes regardless of whether you deliver journalistic work or sell vehicles for the plow furrow and the road.

The hyphen between Bech and Hansen is not in any family tree. But back in 1940 it was a business strategic choice – filing under B rather than H,  you would appear at the front of the phone book. Who said search engine optimization was a new thing?
