Lalita D'Cruze, Operations Director at Giant Digital

Having joined Giant Digital just under 2 years ago, Lalita’s enthusiasm, drive and flair for leadership were clear from the outset, and she quickly progressed into a director-level role. She now holds a place on the senior leadership team, and is instrumental to the smooth running of the organisation. She has brought in improved ways of working and championed learning and development, EDI and wellbeing, bringing new opportunities for team members and nurturing an inclusive working environment.
