With a passion and expertise for bringing people together to cultivate change, he has a strong knowledge of consumer preferences and global trade. He is regularly in the room as one of the decision-makers helping agriculture position best for the future.

Prior to his current role, Lucas was the South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture. He created and supported programs designed to serve and protect farmers, ranchers, and agribusinesses. Along with his family dairy farm and processing backgrounds, Lentsch is also a veteran.
