If you feel the winds of change blowing through NOHO, there’s a good reason. Christina Lucas is back in town.
Downtown was able to grab a quick chat with Christina about her career, vision, and tenacity.
Fresh off her multi-year world tour with insurance giant AIG –
Christina returns to Manhattan as an executive within Global Claims. It’s a role she’s undeniably suited for, having successfully led hundreds of people and managed multiple business units from Miami to Tokyo to Bulgaria, where she was in charge of over 500 multi-lingual insurance professionals supporting the UK and Western Europe. And everywhere she goes she brings change with her, transforming mediocre-performing divisions to deliver groundbreaking results.
Bright and engaging, Christina is naturally drawn to the energy and diversity of life in NoHo. Slipping spur-of-the-moment into a table at Atla, waiting patiently for sushi at Uchū, or shopping at DiPalo’s to prepare an impromptu antipasti platter for friends in her home.
When Christina steps out, she’s always dressed for success –
whether she is heading out for tennis, attending an art gallery showing, delivering a keynote address, or discussing global trends with business leaders. “A solid, 90% of what I wear to work is, St. John,” she admits. “But I feel absolutely inspired when I wear Anya Ponorovskaya. I feel like I can do anything.”
Apparently, Christina can do anything she sets her mind to.
Fearless and courageous even at the age of 8, she boarded a jet from Louisville, Kentucky, for Wiesbaden, Germany, to join her mother who was serving in the U.S. Army. “I knew that I wanted to be a global citizen, to be international and see the world,” Christina says. “Now, I’m so glad to be back in Manhattan. It’s the right change for me right now.”
Christina Lucas is Senior Vice President, Global Claims Business Performance at AIG.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Georgetown University, and a Masters of Information Technology from American Intercontinental University. She currently lives in Manhattan, speaks five languages, and is passionate about the arts, cooking, and tennis.
