Steffen Wulff Petersen from Denmark is in charge of Lazada’s warehouse and logistics needs. The German own company plans to be the number one e-commerce company in the Philippines by end of the year.
He is one of five young professionals from different parts of the globe, who were brought together to the Philippines by the same goal: To help make Lazada the biggest in the country.
“I used to work in London, then I decided on the Philippines and Lazada. I think the Philippines is a great country. Everybody speaks great English. It’s a country with great demographics. There are a lot of things about the country and as a business opportunity it’s probably the best in my mind,” says Steffen Wulff Petersen.
