Tess Posthumus, Netherlands
Having worked in different areas of the industry, Tess was looking for a new challenge. A friend of a friend was at door-74 and after what she describes as a “random conversation” there, the owner Sergej Fokke, called her the next day with the offer of work. “I was always keeping my eyes and ears open as Timo Janse’s apprentice”, she says of her time as a floor waitress, and over five years later and with different bartending shifts, she’s still progressing through the ranks at this renowned establishment. Tess is definitely one to watch in the competition.
