Laura Hucker joined Lion Containers in February 2012 as General Manager. Laura has worked in the container industry for ten years honing her expertise in container hire, sales and modifications for both multi-national and local container companies. Laura is based in the Lion Containers head office in Cannock.
Since working at Lion Containers, Laura has been involved in a variety of major projects and has encouraged the development and success of the conversion department, her favourite conversion project was a set of two containers converted into control units for a Hydroplough vessel, Laura comments that this “was quite a complex project as we had to match two existing containers that the customer already had, we managed the entire project and installed all kinds of equipment, it was really positive to see the final result”.
Laura thoroughly enjoys the varied role she holds at Lion and the fact that she is faced with new challenges every day; “Every day amazes me at Lion with exciting projects, unusual haulage jobs and crazy conversions, but my favourite moments are those when we can genuinely help somebody with a problem. Whether that is ‘Mrs Smith’ who has only just got her home move completion date and needs a container yesterday for all of her worldly goods or a massive conversion project where we can lead the customer by the hand and take away all of the stress of the project”.
Outside of work, Laura enjoys good food and restaurants. Her pet hates are whistling, hotel carpets and perfume adverts and if she was not a container expert, she would be out of work!
