Meet Christopher Luxon


I’m married to Amanda and together we have two young adult children, Olivia and William.

A born and bred Cantabrian, I attended Canterbury University before joining multinational company Unilever, first in Wellington and then in several international posts, before becoming President & CEO of Unilever in Canada. In 2011, after many rewarding years abroad, the call of home and desire for our children to have a Kiwi upbringing, coincided with the opportunity to join Air New Zealand. Within a couple of years I was Chief Executive of the world’s best airline.

National’s values are my values. I work hard, I’m aspirational and I get things done. Those are the qualities I’ll bring to being your Prime Minister. It’s time to take New Zealand forward. There’s hard work ahead, but I’m up for that. It’s what I do. Under my leadership a National Government will get things done, and create a safer, more confident and more prosperous New Zealand.
