Meet our Brand New Growth Director, Marije Sluis. Along with Robin van Driel Vis and Maarten Lelijveld, Marijs is focusing on taking weWow to the next level. “Letting the organisation grow and develop in a right way is super cool for me to be a part of”, says Marije.

About her career

Marije brings 20 to 25 years of work experience in Business Development and commercial roles. She knows exactly how and what it takes to grow an organisation.
Her career started at Monsterboard.nl. At the time, the Dutch team consisted of four people, of which she fulfilled the role of account coordinator. Here she discovered that she is commercial and she has learned and developed this trade. “This has been a very good start for me. I still think about this with great fondness," she says in the conversation.

Marije also had her own company, she says. “In this company, organizations were able to hire me & colleagues to help them with sales structure, sales processes, setting up systems, how do you deal well with a sales team, but also do the sales itself for them.” She did this for Marktplaats, which was her first customer. 

In addition, together with a partner, she founded the women's network Chicks in Digital and Innovation, in which almost a hundred women are already involved.

De afgelopen acht jaar heeft Marije bij Business Models Inc gewerkt, een bedrijf dat organisaties helpt met nieuwe business modellen en innovatiestrategieën. Naast dat Marije hier de Mama’ werd genoemd vanwege haar oog voor collega’s, was ze een grote commerciële rol en had ze een tijd mede verantwoordelijkheid over de internationale kantoren. 

In de baan bij weWow komen er voor Marije een heleboel interesses en talenten samen. 

About Marije

You can characterize Marije by a number of things. She is a warm and empathetic person who loves silliness. However, she can simultaneously make business and calculating decisions to help an organization move forward, but she never loses sight of the human aspect. “I strongly believe that without commerce you get nowhere, but without people you get nowhere. That needs each other,” says Marije. 

“There are so many nice things about my job! What I think is great is getting very cool new customers and growing with that customer," Marije says in the conversation. “Also the challenge that at first seems impossible, but you can manage with the whole team. It's great to build a team and see people grow."

About Valencia

Nine years ago Marije and her husband decided to live in two places. Meanwhile, she has fallen in love with this sunny city. “On the weekends we often go to remote villages and drive through the Spanish country, which makes me really happy. At the weekend I prefer to sit at a big table with friends, with all kinds of tasty things to eat. Of course I like to drink a good glass of wine with this.” It was a dream for Marije to live permanently in Valencia and to have much more energy. 

November 1, 2021 we can welcome Marije to our office in Valencia. “I'm really looking forward to it!” she adds enthusiastically.
