Christina Lindal has become president of Seattle-based Lindal Cedar Homes. She previously was executive vice president and succeeds her father, Bob Lindal, who has spent the past few years gradually transferring responsibility for day-to-day operations to her. Christina spent 15 years working in various positions at the company to become familiar with all aspects of the business, including marketing, accounting, sales and manufacturing.
“I drew my first paycheck from Lindal 60 years ago, and became CEO and president in 1981,” said Bob, who remains board chair. “While I've never had a timeline for the change in leadership, it's always been the plan to transfer management of the company to the next generation when the time was right. That time has come. I have full confidence in Christina's experience and ability to lead Lindal successfully into the future.”
Founded in 1945 by Sir Walter Lindal, Lindal Cedar Homes makes custom post-and-beam home packages, delivered to clients' build sites worldwide.
