From their education, internships and prior roles, our new team members have seamlessly embraced growth-focused cultures and diverse skill sets. As Lancia continues to expand, their journeys reflect our collaborative spirit and commitment to progress.

Prior to his role at Lancia, Dimas graduated with a master’s degree in management engineering from Politecnico di Milano, and wanted to join the team after discovering that Lancia is one of the fastest-growing companies in APAC.

Q: What are you most looking forward to about your role and the project you’ll be working on?

Q: What are you most looking forward to about enjoying the culture and opportunities at Lancia?
A: I'm particularly excited about immersing myself in the firm's collaborative culture and getting to know the wider team.

Before starting his new consulting role, Chiaw Hien’s final internship was with us at Lancia, working as a Consulting Analyst and engaging in a data analytics implementation project.  

Q: What initially attracted you to Lancia?
A: It was the culture, people, and emphasis on employee growth. Through interaction with other employees from Lancia, I was convinced that this was the place for me.

Prior to her People Business Partner role with Lancia, Xanthea engaged in diverse internships within the HR function, for companies such as NTT and McDonalds.  

Q: What initially attracted you to Lancia?
A: Like many Lancians, I was lucky to be referred by a friend. He had the pleasure of being an Analyst at Lancia in 2022. During which, I learned more about the open and diverse culture from him. Particularly, my interest was sparked by the people-centric approach embraced by the leadership team. They treat each Lancian like family, which was evident throughout the interview process.

Q: What key skills have you gathered during your previous experiences, and will be applied to your new role at Lancia?
A: Leveraging on my experience in talent attraction, I will be working towards funnelling a strong graduate talent pipeline to grow the team. Furthermore, I hope to continue working closely with the People Team and Lancians to earn Lancia a "Great Place to Work" award!

Q: As it’s your first role within a consultancy, what are you most looking forward to learning about the industry?
A: I look forward to broadening my understanding of our service offerings. As I am new to the Consulting industry, I also hope to learn more about the industry trends and jargon, so I can better understand the needs of our consultants!
