The First Tee of Silicon Valley recently added a new Director to our Board in August.

Lucas has been in corporate leadership and sales positions his entire career with deep experiences across Consumer Products, Retail, Media, Technology, and Saas driven business at the Fortune 500 level.

Lucas said, “I like that The First Tee grows the game of golf. As a member at Stanford and Sharon Heights, I know I am fortunate and feel strongly that we need more women and minorities to benefit from the game of golf. It has taught me wonderful things about relationships and perseverance, etiquette and fighting through challenges.” Lucas has a passion for giving back and golf. His 3-year Director them is through 2022.

Board Directors vote, provide planning, performance, legal and financial oversight and raise sufficient funds to ensure TFTSV’s success. Board Ambassadors give advice, assist with projects, represent the organization in the community at events, help raise funds, and expand TFTSV’s network throughout Silicon Valley and beyond.
