More Information

A native of Plainville, Quinn Wazorko Christopher graduated from Central Connecticut State University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology in 2002, going on to Southern Connecticut State University for a master’s in social work. Until she became owner of M&T Enterprises in 2017, Christopher was employed at Wheeler Clinic in Plainville.

Christopher served on the Plainville Town Council from 2012 to 2017, is co-president of the Plainville Chamber of Commerce, president of the South Canal Street Industrial Park Association, serves on the Plainville Parks and Recreation Commission, is a member of the Plainville Democratic Town Committee, and is the administrator of the Ted Christopher Memorial Fund and the Drive for Safety Initiative.

Q: What’s been your biggest professional accomplishment so far?

Following my husband’s unexpected death in 2017, I had to decide what to do with his business of servicing Allison transmissions. I had no knowledge of the transmission business, but with my brother-in-law Mike Christopher’s support and knowledge, we decided to continue running the business. For the last five years, he and I have continued M&T Enterprises’ success.

Q: What’s the next big goal you want to accomplish professionally?

I want to continue to grow the business. While our account base has increased by 30% since 2017, I would like to see it grow an additional 20% in the next two years and serve 500 clients. We will do this by continuing to be competitive, providing quality repairs and exceeding client expectations. As a businesswoman, I hope to serve as a role model for those interested in this type of career.

Q: What’s one of the biggest professional challenges you’ve overcome?

Having to unexpectedly pivot my career path is the biggest professional challenge I have overcome. Never did I imagine running this kind of business, especially one not usually associated with women.

Q: How has the COVID-19 pandemic forced you to adapt as a leader?

Considered an essential service, we were extremely fortunate in that we never had to close. We were able to do large-scale repairs and replacements. Because we had a fully stocked inventory, we were not caught in the supply-chain dilemma.
