Petra Lichtenberg



‘I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that’ (Pippi Longstocking)

Petra Lichtenberg has been working with Markenizer B.V. since September 2017. Petra started in the banking industry at ABN AMRO in 1986 and laid the foundation for advising entrepreneurs. In 2000, the switch was made to ING, where she worked in various commercial and managerial positions. Her last position at ING was Director MKB South-Holland-South. In 2016 she started Lightmountain Consultancy and works for various clients as sparring partner, financial advisor and in sales. When Marieke asked me for the Sales Manager function within Markenizer, I was immediately enthusiastic. A professional and small team and (for me) a new and relatively unknown field where I can learn a lot combined with sales, completely my thing.
