The Management of the Year jury recently selected 8 finalists out of 54 nominations. Within the theme ‘Let’s Grow’, they will be looking at leadership, communication, transparency, and reliability. The jury will follow Maartje for 7 months and judge her on the following:

  • Personal growth
  • Growth of the team and employees
  • Growth in relation to running the business
  • Growth in relation to changing the business

Next steps

A jury-duo will be visiting Cygnific during the summer, to observe Maartje’s way of working. Through an interview with her, her manager Marco Redeker and colleagues they want to understand and get a feel of our company and the work we do.

The grand final will be held in November. All 8 finalists will ‘battle’ within the theme ‘Let’s Grow’. The jury will look at what the manager has achieved to realise their goals for both colleagues and clients. They seek a strong ambassador for the Customer Contact Industry when appointing the Manager of the Year 2023.  Of course, we will all be rooting for her.


At Cygnific part of the basis of our culture is that we value and support the journey that our colleagues make in their professional career. By learning with and from each other we can all grow together. We are delighted to see our Director Operations Maartje being recognized for her work with this nomination as finalist Manager of the Year award 2023.
