We are excited to introduce Jeff Lucas, our new VP of Operations, Construction, who joined the HEGG team on January 21st, 2024. Jeff brings a wealth of experience and a passion for making a difference in the workplace. 

What Motivates Jeff? 

When asked what motivates him to come to work every day, Jeff shares, “Making a difference in the workplace…whether it be helping individuals grow professionally, making projects come to fruition, creating efficiencies, finding resolutions, celebrating, and recognizing successes; all the aforementioned make each day a motivator.” 

Favorite Quote 

Jeff lives by the powerful mantra: “Failure > Feedback > Knowledge > Power to…” This quote encapsulates his belief in the transformative power of learning from failures to achieve success. 

Bucket List Adventures 

Jeff has an adventurous spirit, with a dream of visiting New Zealand to harvest a Red Stag. He has already checked off an exhilarating experience from his bucket list: attending the NASCAR night race in Bristol, TN. 

Roots and Return to Sioux Falls 

Born and raised in Sioux Falls, Jeff graduated from Lincoln High School and pursued higher education in Mankato, MN, where he stayed for 24 years. The opportunity to return to Sioux Falls, a place he calls the “free state,” to build his career and spend more time with family and friends, brought him back. 

Exciting Projects Ahead 

In his new role, Jeff is looking forward to working on numerous projects. While he cannot single out one project over another, he is enthusiastic about the exciting opportunities ahead. 

What Sets HEGG Apart 

Jeff believes that what sets HEGG apart is “the overall diversity that we can provide through Hegg Companies within multiple industries. The experience that each team brings to the table to collaborate on a variety of projects.” 

Describing HEGG 

When asked to describe HEGG in three words, Jeff chose: Experienced, Innovative, and Welcoming (family-oriented). 

Vision for the Future 

Looking ahead, Jeff sees himself continuing his professional growth within HEGG Construction, fostering team development, and expanding the company’s footprint in the greater Sioux Falls area. 

We are thrilled to have Jeff on board and look forward to the positive impact he will make at HEGG. Welcome to the team, Jeff!
