ELKHART, Indiana - Jordan Lucas has joined ASA Electronics as the Public Relations Specialist for the marketing department. Lucas is responsible for writing literature, advertisement copy and press releases for new ASA products and partnerships.
“I’m really enjoying my position at ASA thus far," Lucas says. "My job lets me do the things I am good at and love doing: write! I was told by a family friend from a very young age that I’d make an excellent sales person, and I’m able to channel that persuasiveness into writing about our products.”
Lucas is native to the Michiana area and is a recent graduate from Indiana University South Bend where she majored in Communication with a concentration in Journalism. After a brief foray into the world of TV broadcast, Lucas decided to pursue different avenues.
“We are so glad to have Jordan here," ASA Marketing Manager Monica Pletcher says. "She’s catching on fast considering she’s brand new to the industry and I think her skill set is going to be an excellent addition to our marketing team,”
When Lucas isn’t pecking away at her keyboard, she enjoys knitting, learning about new things and spending time with her cat, Ferdinand.
