Senior Sales Support, Joy Verhoeven
"Delivering messages, that's what we do! Delivering your personal message at sweet and sorrow."
You want to say something to someone (on behalf of your company); 'thank you', 'get well', 'congratulations' or 'just because' because you just had a nice telephone conversation. We make that person feel good on your behalf. We do this with a flower, cake, fruit basket, bottle of wine or champagne, a gift certificate and many more gifts. We combine your wishes about the look and personalization with the administrative requirements. You have nothing to worry about, how nice is that? From online ordering environments for all (authorized) employees to customized solutions for hundreds or even thousands of recipients of your personal message. Topgeschenken's sales department is ready to help you! Contact us to discuss how we can also deliver your messages.
Marketing and communication
Manager Marketing & Category Management, Heleen Beukers-Parson
“Being busy every day helping people surprise and delight another person. That's just really nice and fun to do.”
A customer goes through a certain journey, from need for a product or service to purchase. In these different stages, we want to be visible through different channels and be able to fulfill the need at that moment. Within the marketing department we are working daily to optimize this process and get to know our customers better, so that we can offer what is important to them.
Category Management Topgeschenken.nl & Topfruit.nl
Manager Category Management Topgeschenken.nl & Topfruit.nl, Nienke Donselaar
"Sometimes you wake up with a head full of ideas."
The product development department is constantly working on "delivering a good feeling. We want to surprise the customer with a high-quality assortment. We compile the assortment based on customer needs and follow the latest trends in design. The creation of an idea to going 'live' on the website is a lively process that we supervise from A to Z.
Category Management Topbloemen.nl & Toptaarten.nl
Category manager Topbloemen.nl & Toptaarten.nl, Ilona Brockhoff
"Creative jack-of-all-trades VS organizational skills."
No day is the same when you work at Category management Topbloemen.nl and Toptaarten.nl. Every month we bind and photograph innovative bouquets, which we then assess and use to put together a new assortment, tailored to market and customer needs. But without flowers no assortment, without our growers no flowers and without our florists no bouquets. Like a spider in the web, it is our job to functionally organize and supervise this dynamic purchasing and supply chain process from A to Z. Thereby we keep an eye on sustainability, the latest trends and of course on what we as Topbloemen.nl want to radiate. The same applies to Toptaarten.nl, which currently still has a lot of growth potential.
OperationsOperational manager, Ruben Gimpel
"Where do we need to learn and grow so that we can improve our processes, which will enable us to satisfy our customers and achieve our goals?"
This is essentially what the Operations department is concerned with. In an environment where the customer wants and needs are subject to change, as a service-oriented organization you will have to continuously strive to provide the best possible service.
Human ResourcesHR Manager, Natalia van Schie
“Our employees are the key to success.”
The success of the organization is determined by the quality of its employees.
