Meet Christine Walker of Lawson Kroeker

A Great Director of Operations Always Has Your Investment Portfolio Prioritized

 

“We have a heightened ability to hear beyond the noise, to keep our focus and vision on what matters most – serving our clients and investing with their goals in mind. This is best achieved when we truly listen and make wise, client-focused decisions without distractions.”


Hometown: Omaha, Nebraska
Years in the Investment/Finance Industry:
25-plus
First Car: 1975 Chevy Camaro. It wasn’t new, says Christine, but still … a teenager with a hot rod car … she wasn’t sure what her parents were thinking.

 

What comes up if people talk about the Lawson Kroeker name? They talk about managing taxes, and not being “captive” to one particular bank. They talk about having all angles of investment management under one organization. They talk about flexibility, and about independent decisions that aren’t tied to a large corporation somewhere else.

It’s this type of conversation that has attracted team members like Christine Walker, Lawson Kroeker’s Director of Operations, to the firm.

Before launching her career in the investment world, Christine earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and banking from the University of Nebraska in Omaha. She has worked in the investment industry in Omaha for over 25 years, managing operations at several investment advisory firms. When her daughters were young, she worked as an independent consultant to several local investment firms in Omaha and Lincoln.

Why Does Christine Choose Omaha?
When asked why she chooses to live in Omaha and work at Lawson Kroeker, Christine responds, “Omaha is a great place to raise a family and be part of an extended family, which is what I consider Lawson Kroeker to be – a family.

“We have a heightened ability to hear beyond the noise, to keep our focus and vision on what matters most – serving our clients and investing with their goals in mind. This is best achieved when we truly listen and make wise, client-focused decisions without distractions.”

Encouraging Others: It Just Comes Naturally
Christine has a heart to serve others and says she gets great satisfaction seeing others succeed. If she weren’t involved in the investment industry, she would love to be in a position to encourage others in setting and reaching their goals. Christine believes it is rewarding to walk alongside individuals, understanding where they have been and where they want to go.

Christine’s first car was a 1975 Chevy Camaro. She says, “A teenager with a hot rod car … not sure what my parents were thinking.” She drove it daily for nine years and then gave it to her brother, moving on to a family-friendly sedan.

Christine’s Values: Aligned with the Lawson Kroeker Experience
At Lawson Kroeker, Christine appreciates the way the firm truly values relationships. “The team takes satisfaction in the longevity and multi-generational nature of their client relationships,” she says.

Christine also values her family. Most of her involvement and service have been related to her daughters’ activities in school, and she is also active in her church. She says, “I truly enjoy being a wife, mom and aunt. Most of my free time is spent with my husband and daughters and I also enjoy hiking and traveling.”

If you’ve had a great experience it’s likely that Christine had a hand in it. Her love of family extends all the way to her colleagues and clients, and you’ll see that quality in her work.
