When Morgan Lucas left the driver’s seat of his Top Fuel dragster, he did so with intentions of settling into an increased role in the family’s Lucas Oil business. He has now been promoted to President of Lucas Oil Products.
Morgan will now report directly to his father, CEO Forrest Lucas.
“Today, I am honored and humbled to assume the role of President of Lucas Oil Products,” Morgan said. “This incredible opportunity is one that I do not take lightly and thanks to our amazing executive management team and all of our hard-working employees, I know our future is bright. I have watched my father and mother work tirelessly and make countless sacrifices to take Lucas Oil from its modest beginnings to grow it into the thriving enterprise that it is today.
“The mission they have instilled has always been to exemplify hard work and integrity through the creation of high quality, problem-solving products with an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. Continuing their successful approach and being open-minded to new opportunities amidst the ever-changing marketplace, I am confident we will continue to grow as a company for many years to come.”
Forrest Lucas is proud of the executive his son has become.
“I could not be more proud of the professional Morgan has grown up to be,” Forrest said. “He has worked his way to the top of this company from the ground up and truly showed his potential to us since day one. He’s earned the respect of his teammates, and he’s definitely earned mine.”
