Lucas Oil Products, a leader and distributor of high-performance automotive additives and lubricants, announced the transition of Forrest Lucas from CEO to Chairman of Lucas Oil. In his new role, he will be stepping away from the day-to-day activities and move into an advisory role to help guide the company’s strategic direction. The transition also allows Forrest, along with his wife Charlotte, more time to focus on the Lucas Cattle Company, the Lucas Ranch, and other personal initiatives.

            “Lucas Oil has a rich history and a very bright future,” said Lucas. “As I transition into my role as chairman, I am excited at the opportunity to spend more time on different projects as we continue the family legacy of the company.”

            The Lucas Ranch, spanning nearly 16,000 acres in western Missouri, is home to the Lucas Cattle Company and its nearly 4,500 cattle. For years, Forrest split his time between managing Lucas Oil, the ranch, and other business endeavors. Now he plans to focus on the cattle company’s daily operations, livestock development, pasture management, auctions, and his impressive heard of Longhorns.
