Janne van der Laan

Global Marketing Manager

About me

Hello, it’s a pleasure to meet you! My name is Janne van der Laan and I am a branding and marketing professional based in Milan. I have over 8 years of work experience in a variety of strategic creative roles on both agency and client side in Amsterdam, Dubai and Milan. Since one and a half year I am the Marketing Manager for Versus Versace after having worked for three years as the Global Marketing Coordinator for Versace First Line. In my current job I am responsible for the set-up and development of global marketing strategies and campaign roll-out, including forecasting, controlling and reporting on budget and presenting marketing plan to internal stakeholders like the Business Unit Director, CEO and Artistic Direction. Besides this I also handle the partnerships and (celebrity) collaborations and lead all creative media production for the brand, coordinating and briefing cross functional stakeholders and third party agencies to deliver imagery, collateral, messaging, advice and any other supporting activity associated with marketing plans and initiatives on time, brand and in budget. This is where I am now: I’m ready to move to a more specialised role where I can use my broad experience in brand marketing, concept development and content creation in a meaningful way and deepen my knowledge and expertise in those aspects of my job which I love most. I'm open to explore new opportunities both in my current industry as well as beyond.
