Ellen Lucas, CAS
Owner/President - Lucas Promotional Products Inc.
Ellen and her husband Rich, literally started the business in their basement in 2000 and started to print small jobs for schools and nonprofit organizations on a small ink pad printer.

In 2003, their daughter Christy joined the company full time and became their leading sales person and the business began to prosper.
