Christine Cooper

Christine was previously Managing Director of LNT Construction, but has now moved across to be Project Director for LNT Care Developments, working with Nick and Emily to take a more strategic approach to the development programme.

After graduating from the University of Nottingham with a First class honours degree in mathematics, Christine joined British Aerospace in Stevenage as a Graduate Engineer and was involved in the successful launch of several geostationary communications satellites. In 1990 she moved back North to take up the role of Programme Manager at Slingsby Aviation, where she successfully planned the expansion of the light aircraft production line from 7 aircraft per year to deliver 125 aircraft for the USAF in 15 months. In 1994 Christine joined Evans Universal in Leeds and again applied her programme management skills to enable the company to expand rapidly, quadrupling their output of incinerators and cremators over a two year period.

Christine moved to LNT Construction in March 2007 where she successfully introduced forward planning, structure and stability to the construction team; Lawrence invited her to take on the role of MD in May 2012.
