Employee Spotlight: Rebecca den Hartog
What attracted you to work in affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is built around human connections and allows me to measure the success of my efforts. It also provides me with the opportunity to work for clients with presence in different markets and make my dream to work internationally as a marketing professional a reality.
How has AP’s onboarding experience differed from past companies you’ve worked with?
From day one, I felt welcomed and valued by the Acceleration Partners team. I got access to an internal training platform that would help me get up to speed with everything I needed to know.
I have not seen such a robust training platform in past companies. I got to know many colleagues in different areas of the business and even received a buddy in Americas and EMEA, which immediately showed me how Acceleration Partners values worldwide connection.
As an Associate Account Manager, what are some of your core responsibilities?
I’m an Associate Account Manager on our Global Accounts team, and I work with various global clients. My responsibilities include managing the EMEA market, sourcing new partner opportunities, optimizing existing partnerships and providing guidance to the associate member on my team.
You’re an essential member of our Global Client Delivery team, what are some important nuances to a global affiliate program?
One of the most important nuances are the cultural differences between markets. Not every approach works well in each market. We know there is an increased engagement from partners when reaching out in their native language, so we tend to deliver this skillset as much as possible on the Global Client Delivery team. At Acceleration Partners, you’ll find yourself part of a truly global team with colleagues from different backgrounds.
Have you ever been a part of a remote global team like AP before? What has surprised you about working on a remote global team?
I have never worked in a remote environment prior to Acceleration Partners, and I must say that it has pleasantly surprised me. I felt connected with the team from the start and was able to surround myself with people who are never afraid to challenge the status quo.
Working in a remote environment has also allowed me to spend more time with my family, as they live oversees and the possibility to work remote is invaluable to me.
Tell us some of your hobbies you like to do outside of work.
Outside of work, you can find me on the beach. I’ll be either playing beach tennis or simply enjoying my environment.
Finally, where is next on your travel bucket list?
I love beach holidays and therefore cannot wait to be sailing in Ibiza this summer.
