Sales 

Sales Team leader, Sander Kuijt
"Delivering messages, that's what we do! Delivering your personal message for better or worse"

You want to say something to someone (on behalf of your company); 'thank you', 'get well', 'congratulations' or 'just like that' because you just had a nice telephone conversation. We give that person a good feeling on your behalf. We do this with flowers, cake, fruit basket, bottle of wine or champagne, a gift certificate and many other gifts. We combine your wishes regarding the appearance and personalization with the administrative wishes. You don't have to worry about it anymore, how pleasant is that? From online ordering environments for all (authorized) employees to customized solutions for hundreds or even thousands of recipients of your personal message. The Topgeschenken sales department is ready for you! Contact us to discuss how we can deliver your 'messages' too.

Marketing & Product Development

 

Marketer, Marieke Overzier
"We don't sell a product, we sell a fulfillment of the customers' needs.”
A customer goes through a certain journey, from needing a product or service to buying it. In these different phases, we want to be visible through different channels and be able to fill the need that is there at that moment. Within the marketing department we are working to optimize this process and get to know our customers better, so that we can offer what is important to them.

Product Development, Nienke Donselaar 
"Sometimes you wake up with a head full of ideas".
The product development department is constantly working on "providing a good feeling". We want to surprise the customer with a high-quality assortment. We put together the assortment based on customer needs and follow the latest trends in design. The creation of an idea until it goes 'live' on the website is a lively process that we guide from A to Z.
 



 
























 


Purchasing, Product Management and Operations


Purchasing:
"From fruit, beer and beauty packages to office furniture and transport to our florists."
All external products and services are handled by the Purchasing Department. After the creative process is complete, the Purchasing Department comes into the picture. We look for the best supplier for the purchasing needs and enter into an agreement with them, preferably for a long period of time. Everything is under the sign of top quality and top experience!

Product Management, Danny Felthuis:
"Punctuality and 'data crunching' are the core concepts."
The technical side of purchasing is carried out and managed by the Product Management department. All products sold on one of the Topgeschenken websites have passed through the hands of Product Management. Not only the creation of products but also a part of stock management are the main tasks of this department. Product Management is an indispensable link between purchasing, product development and logistics.

Operations, 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 all about. In an environment where customer wants and needs are subject to change, as a service-oriented organization you will have to continuously strive for optimal service.

On behalf of the great colleagues at the reception
A day without laughter is a day wasted. That is what we want to convey to our visitors on a daily basis.

These great colleagues at the reception desk are the daily face of Toptaarten.nl. They receive our visitors with a smile and are responsible for the order processing of the gift vouchers. In addition, and certainly not unimportant, we owe them a delicious lunch every day!
