Frances Lynch

Frances, known to friends as Fran, was born and bred in Northern Ireland, and moved to England in 1988 to study Chemical Engineering at Manchester University. A job offer from ICI in 1992 brought her to the Teesside area, and she’s never left!

Although Fran has a strongly technical background, she is also a Chartered Marketer and her current employment is as Global Marketing Manager for an International FTSE 100 company. She is a director of Ingleby Manor Foundation Trust, the parent and community group that secured the school for Ingleby Barwick.

Fran is married to Terry, and has two sons; her stepson is studying at Leeds University and her younger son is currently attending a local college.
