When we first met Lucas in his interview a year ago, we were truly unaware of the gold we had struck when we decided to bring him on. He was a young and rather quiet high school graduate, with certainly a polite way about him, but with little experience in our industry. However, as we have been pleased to discover over the last year, he has very quickly developed and showcased every trait that we want from a quality Hancock Lumber employee, even earning recognition from his peers. Lucas has met the highest standard within one year of working for Team Hancock, being named Bridgton’s 2021 employee of the year! Lucas’ positive attitude is seemingly unbreakable. On any given day, no matter how good or bad, he is most certain to tell you that things are “fantastic”. It’s almost a super-power. In fact, he’s often called by his superhero name, “Captain Fantastic”–mostly by an over-enthusiastic GM. He is a committed team player who is focused on quality across the board. And, despite being the youngest member of our team, this has not kept him from being seen as a leader in our operations. We are truly blessed to have Lucas here in Bridgton. We hope he stays for a long time and continues to realize his potential with Hancock Lumber. Congratulations, Lucas!
