We are thrilled to share a wonderful story of personal growth and Neighborhood career progression from within our Pink Elephant family. March 2024 marked a significant milestone for Manon van der Meijden as she not only completed her University studies for Register Controller, but was also appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Pink Elephant Netherlands.

Manon began her journey in 2011 as a Finance intern at Pink Elephant Netherlands, demonstrating dedication, acumen, and a thirst for growth. Over the next 12 years, she continued to elevated herself, contributing significantly to Pink Elephant’s success.

Her tenure as a finance employee, combined with her pursuit of knowledge, culminated in a second master’s degree from Nyenrode Business University. This accomplishment not only showcases her personal dedication but also underscores Pink Elephant’s commitment to fostering continuous learning and growth among its Pinkers.

Manon’s promotion to CFO came at a pivotal moment for Pink Elephant. As the organization continues to evolve and grow, her strategic vision and financial expertise will be instrumental in steering the company towards sustained success. With Perry van der Weijden at the helm as CEO and Manon now a member of the Executive Board, Pink Elephant is well set to navigate the challenges and market opportunities that lie ahead.

Her narrative embodies perseverance, dedication, and the transformative power of education, echoing Pink Elephant’s values of career progression and female leadership.

In Manon’s own words, “Your career at Pink is what you make of it. There are as many opportunities and possibilities as you desire, and create.” Her journey from intern to CFO exemplifies this ethos, serving as an inspiration to all our colleagues in the Neighborhood and is a testament to the limitless potential within the company.

As we celebrate Manon’s achievements, we also reflect on the collective spirit of collaboration and support that defines Pink Elephant. Together, the organization continues to innovate, grow, and redefine success in the ever-evolving business landscape.

Please join us in congratulating Manon on her remarkable journey and wishing her every success in her role as CFO of Pink Elephant Netherlands.
