Trouw is temporary and will close her doors forever on January 3rd. Trouw wouldn’t be the meeting place and breeding ground that it is today without the people working there day and night. This series puts various Trouw employees in the spotlight. From the light people, to the door host: all nodes of Trouw will see their place on the pedestal. Today: Kim - our financial director.
Kim is responsible for the day-to-day management of Trouw, together with Olaf Boswijk and Kim Tuin. "I’ve been involved since day one. At the start, I did the management of the restaurant one day a week, and was responsible for the administration for the rest of the week. Not much later, Mevrouw Trouw was added, the business rental division for corporate events within Trouw. When I got pregnant in 2010, I dropped the restaurant work and focused on the rental and finances. I miss the work ‘on the floor’ though. That’s why I work at least once a month as a waitress in the restaurant.'
As one-third of a whole, Kim has a say in nearly everything that happens within Trouw. 'We discuss a lot together, but also trust each other completely with things that lie within each individual’s strengths. I’d never interfere with the programming, for example. Although I would say if something costs too much.'
