Part-time VP, full-time excellence – Maggie van’t Hoff
Maggie van’t Hoff is part of a growing group of current professionals working part-time while climbing the corporate ladder. After the birth of her third child, Maggie requested a reduced work schedule to have more time with her family. That was in 2009, and since then she’s been promoted twice while maintaining a four-day work week. Today, she leads Shell Retail’s IT strategy, delivery, and operations, overseeing more than 45,000 retail locations across 80 countries. Maggie credits her success to her ability to effectively prioritise and set clear boundaries.
“Part of getting a promotion is about delivering on what you say you’re going to deliver. You need to show you’re capable and have the capacity, regardless of the amount of hours you work per week”
