visualfabriq – Welcomes Marieke Smits
What with the opening of visualfabriq offices in New York City, London and Barcelona, 2018 has been a year of phenomenal growth for the company. Our expanding footprint and staff complement are keeping pace with all our new clients coming on board to implement our game-changing revenue management solutions.
The growth of visualfabriq’s business in Europe has led to our recent appointment of Marieke Smits as a new Customer Success Manager based at visualfabriq Global HQ in Maarssen, The Netherlands.
While Marieke is filling a new place on our Customer Success team, she’s actually no stranger to visualfabriq as she’s come to us through our implementation partner, EOH. Marieke says: “I enjoyed an exciting six years with EOH in Johannesburg, South Africa that afforded me the opportunity to study an MBA. I then spent more than a year as an EOH Business Development Executive based in Luxembourg before making my way home to The Netherlands to be part of the visualfabriq team.”
During her time with EOH, Marieke gained experience working on the standardization of visualfabriq’s implementation toolbox and project managing an implementation project at Heineken. As a Customer Success Manager, she is now also working with other clients such as Unilever, FrieslandCampina and Perfetti Van Melle.
“This is a unique opportunity to put my studies of business into action,” Marieke says, “I am really enjoying having this experience in a smaller company that has a mission to revolutionize the way CPG companies manage revenue, and are scaling up rapidly. The challenges are inspiring. The vision is strong and clear. There’s room and space for me to use my talents and put my knowledge into action.”
Marieke’s willingness to be adventurous in the business world are matched by her personal interests. She loves travel, and has lived and worked in the Indian Ocean island-country Madagascar. Like most others on the visualfabriq team, she loves sports but that doesn’t mean you will necessarily find her watching soccer on TV. Marieke is into cross-fit and yoga, and is more likely to be kite-surfing near The Hague!
