Janna Lo

Meet Janna, Master Data Officer

"My proudest moments at Lidl have been both internal transfers within Lidl Hong Kong and being transferred internationally from Asia to the UK. This highlights the company's great mobility opportunities, both domestically and internationally. I'm proud because stepping outside one's comfort zone is a challenge, but I made it successfully. Looking ahead, I'm excited about exploring future opportunities within the Lidl world."
