Britt Vidung first joined the Olav Thon Group as restaurant manager in 2002, and was then HR/Personnel Manager at Thon Hotel Arena in Lillestrøm for ten years. She came from Nordic Choice Hotels and has also worked at Umoe Restaurants as HR Manager.

Britt is a professionally qualified chef and waitress. In addition, she has a degree from the Norwegian School of Hotel Management in Stavanger and studied employment law at Buskerud and Vestfold University College. In 2019, she returned to the Olav Thon Group, as a senior HR adviser at the head office.

What I like best about my job: That the Group is so large that I get to know several different specialist areas within hotels, shopping centres, parking, property and much more. I can develop relationships based on good dialogue and communication, and find good solutions for employees and managers.
