Lana Burton

Director, Talent Acquisition, Maple Leaf Foods

Lana Burton (Bryon) is a strategic business leader who helps organizations and people to recognize and realize their potential.

As Director, Talent Acquisition at Walmart Canada, she redesigned their recruitment strategies for the identification, attraction and retention of talent for their Corporate Head Office, Store Ops and Campus programs. This resulted in successfully leading the Talent Acquisition team through the largest volume hiring years, while maintaining all SLA’s and 100% team engagement. As well, the improvements to Campus programs and recruitment, led to winning ‘Best Campus Program’ from Talent Egg in 2018 and 2019.

Lana is a connector. She is as comfortable in doing tactical work when she’s providing pro-bono support to community programs and charities such as Second Harvest and operating at the most strategic global level with complex corporations. As a working mother of two, she knows how to connect the intimate needs of others and still make time to do the work that we all need to do within.
