The vacancy: Director Customer Lifetime Management
In recent years Rapido has focused mainly on acquisition. This focus has resulted in an enormous user base. It is up to the Director Customer Lifetime Management to take the next step: getting maximum value out of existing customers through engagement and retention. They ave a team of three FTUs at their disposal: an e-mail specialist, a CRM specialist and a campaign manager. The Director Customer Lifetime Management leads, coaches and helps the team members and further develops the team.
The Director Customer Lifetime Management is responsible for the development and implementation of the CRM strategy for the various Rapido labels. In mature markets Rapido operates under its original brand names: beltegoed.nl, guthaben.de, herladen.com, recharge.fr and mobiletopup.co.uk. In new markets such as Denmark, Italy, Spain and Portugal, the company works under rapido.com. The Director Customer Lifetime Management sets out the strategic vision for all these brands and is also actively involved in their implementation.
“At Creative Group we work in an extremely dynamic environment. What was new yesterday will become obsolete tomorrow. The Director Customer Lifetime Management shows leadership in that challenging context, they always ask themselves: what’s next?” – Jeroen Siegerink, Marketing Director Rapido
The most important task for the Director Customer Lifetime Management is to increase the customer lifetime value. To this end, he or she develops, with the help of customer data and marketing automation platforms, sharp customer segmentation and communication.

To achieve this, the Director Customer Lifetime Management relies on their strategic, analytical and creative capabilities. They also use the expertise of colleagues in other teams, such as Performance Marketing, Brand & Content, Marketing Automation and Business Intelligence.
Director Customer Lifetime Management at Creative Group is not a standard corporate job: not much is set in stone. The foundation for CRM is in place, but the Director Customer Lifetime Management is given complete freedom to then direct it. This offers great opportunities – both in the role and in the next steps – for someone who feels at home in a real start-up environment.
