Creative Resource Manager

Hey Yvonne, what are your superpowers in the Appart Family?

What are my superpowers… I am a powerful, social organiser who tries to use her knowledge, creativity and experience to help Appart Media grow.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I am someone who enjoys life to the fullest. I love to cook for family and friends, but I won’t say no to a nice dinner in a restaurant with some wine! I often go on holidays with the caravan in the summer and in the winter you can find me where the snow is. Jogging, shopping and hiking are some things I enjoy as well. Recently I’ve started getting into geocaching, treasure hunting with a GPS. This makes my hikes a lot more fun because we get to discover a lot of spots we normally wouldn’t find.

What's something we can wake you up for?


What did you want to be when you grew up?

I used to have a lot of interest in nutrition. Maybe that’s why I wanted to become a nutrition assistant in a hospital. Even though I never became a nutrition assistant, I did work in the food industry. I used to work for Sodexo, an international leader in Quality of Live Services, for 27 years!

Who have inspired you?

Positive and motivated people around me are a huge inspiration, they give me a lot of energy!

What is your best memory of Appart Media?

My first day here has been the most memorable. From the first moment I entered, I’ve felt at home. I could clearly see how proud the employees were, because they got to work for such a young and dynamic company. It was a warm welcome. I feel like I’ve been at Appart Media for years, even though it has only been a few months.

What do you think defines Appart Media?

Something I think is typical for Appart Media is equality. It doesn’t matter if you’re the manager, an employee, supervisor or intern. Everyone contributes to the daily tasks. This gives our office a cosy feeling, and a lot of interaction!
