The new manager of the Heidelberg Mall has been a resident of the town for nearly five months and is looking to make a positive impression on all visitors to the centre.
Annemarie Jansen van Vuuren has worked for Capital Land Asset Management for over nine years and previously looked
after a portfolio of five different shopping centres in the Mpumalanga Lowveld region.
The opportunity to manage a mall of the calibre of the Heidelberg Mall was an offer she couldn't refuse and arrived in town towards the end of 2020.
With numerous years of experience in the retail sector, Annemarie understands that hard work and long hours are all part and parcel of the industry.
"What you sow is what you reap" says Annemarie.
"Both myself and the team work hard and I know we will reap the rewards at the end of the day.
I see many opportunities to make this mall an even better space".
The fact that the Heidelberg Mall caters for a diverse range
of communities is something that excites this new resident.
"Both myself and the company I work for are very community focused and it is a pleasure to meet the different people who frequent our stores here" says Annemarie.
"I am a people's person through and through and love the interaction with the public".
Besides having a bubbly personality, Annemarie counts trail walking amongst her interests and can't wait to discover some of the routes in and around Heidelberg.
When asked what she sees as her greatest challenge, Annemarie believes the cold Heidelberg winters will be tough to endure.
However, she sees herself as generally being a proactive rather than reactive manager and instead of seeing issues as challenges she prefers to look at them as opportunities.
Besides that, she aims to leave a legacy behind one day, one that she will be able to look back on with fondness and pride.
The people of Heidelberg welcome you Annemarie and wish you all the best both at the Heidelberg Mall as well as a member of our community.
