Silvana Martinez

  • Administration Manager

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.

What have you gained from working at Apricity?
Working at Apricity has given me the chance to work in a great business with excellent mentors. I have improved my IT skills out of sight and extended my finance knowledge. I have had the chance to use my initiative and improved my analytical and logical approach to problem solving.

What are you most proud of?
In my working life, I am proud of the experience I have gained. I have experience in a lot of different industries, from being self-employed, working as a Disability Support Worker and in finance. It has made me a more adaptable employee, always willing to take on new roles and it has given me the ability to adapt to change quickly.

In my personal life, I am most proud of my children. They are my biggest and most important accomplishment. I have raised my children to be kind, hardworking and selfless adults.

What are you passionate about?
I have a strong passion for riding motorcycles. I own a VStar 650cc Classic and try to ride as much as I can with friends. I love the feeling of freedom I get! Recently I became very passionate about animal welfare and environmental conservation which led me to become a vegan, adopting a plant-based lifestyle. I typically spend my day at the office trying to convert my meat eating co-workers!

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
I could not live without music!

How are you lucky and why?
I feel extremely lucky to have a great life, awesome family and children, and a fantastic job!

What is your favourite family tradition?
My favourite family traditions are around Christmas time. In the lead up to Christmas we make Christmas cake to share with family and friends and Cola de Mono which is a South American alcoholic drink.
When are you happiest?
I am the happiest when I am surrounded by the people I love!
