Silvana Martinez

Systems & Operations Executive

Silvana joined the team in 2016 and manages the day-to-day administration functions of the business. She is a highly skilled Customer Service/Administrator with extensive experience in financial and government sectors.

Silvana is responsible for our database administration and assisting with documentation for both the sales and finance teams. She also supports the NZ team with their administration requirements. Unfortunately for Sil she is also highly proficient in IT and MS Office, meaning she is also the unofficial help desk and all round office IT expert. Thankfully she takes on this role with the same level of enthusiasm as she does her real job, for which we are all extremely grateful.

THE NICKNAME PEOPLE KNOW ME FOR…

Sil, Silv or my family call me Chata which means short one in Chilean slang, even though I am now taller than my mum and sister. 

IN A NUTSHELL, MY JOB IS TO…

Provide support to the Credit/Finance department in the preparation of due diligence. I also help the Sales team with documentation and support for new and existing customers. I am also the unofficial I.T help desk for Apricity.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I HAVE LEARNED IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS IS…

To never let others limit my capacity, to embrace change and to ask myself more questions because sometimes we forget to take the time to ask ourselves what it is that we want.

MY FIRST JOB OUT OF SCHOOL WAS…

I was a Secretary to the Director for Empresa Portuaria de Iquique that engages in the administration, operation and development of the Port of Iquique, in northern Chile’s Tarapacá region.

IF I HAD THE DAY OFF TODAY, YOU WOULD FIND ME…

I live in the Illawarra, or as my brother in law always says “Gods Country”.  I would be at the dog beach (playing with other people’s dogs as I can’t have one living in a unit), swimming, catching some rays, or at one of the local hotels having a gin and tonic overlooking the ocean.

MY FAVOURITE BOOK/MOVIE/SONG IS…

Geez I wish I had a favourite, I’m more of what I like in the present type of gal. Book – Breath by James Nestor a book that teaches you how to breathe correctly for well-being. Movie – Hacksaw Ridge. Song – Classic by Adrian Gurvitz

MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT APRICITY IS…

t’s a great company, with great people who put relationships before profit.
