LUCAS CASE JOINS SCHULTZ & SUMMERS ENGINEERING
CASE JOINS ESTEEMED MARKETING & PUBLIC RELATIONS DIVISION
Schultz & Summers Engineering is pleased to welcome Lucas Case to the Marketing and Public Relations Department at SSE. Case hails from the mid-Missouri town of Richland but has lived and worked in Southwest Missouri for the last six years. In 2012 SSE added a PR and Marketing division that will cater to professional services companies. To better serve those clients they brought on Lucas Case, a social media guru and former Political Advisor to numerous Missouri candidates. SSE Marketing Director, Rodney Jetton had this to say, “Lucas’ background in Public Relations, Social Media Management and Marketing were exactly what we were looking for to help us communicate our message with our customers. He will also help the SSE’s marketing division provide, bankers, realtors, and other professional businesses build stronger relationships with their clients.”
Case recently served as the Political Director for State Treasurer Sarah Steelman’s United States Senate campaign, and before that he served as an advisor on multiple state house and state senate races across Missouri. In 2010 Case was a consultant for Majority Fund, Inc. (MFI) with the Missouri State Senate Campaign Committee and helped usher in wins for Senator Jay Wasson, Senator Bob Dixon and former House Speaker Ron Richard. He was also involved in multiple races in the Springfield area as well as an advisor to Senator Jack Goodman’s Congressional race. Earlier in 2008 Lucas was the Statewide Field Director for the Sarah Steelman for Governor Campaign.
Soon after the elections were over Case moved into the private sector and managed a multi-million dollar venue in Branson on the World Famous Highway 76 Country Boulevard. Along with managing the property he also founded the Sunday Night Gospel Concert Series at the Music City Centre Theatre. Case was also a co-founder of the Branson-based Downing Street Boys Quartet. In 2010 and 2011, Lucas also worked for Barbara Fairchild in her Marketing & Sales Department, which also allowed him to stay active in the Branson League of Theatre Owners & Show Producers. Former CFO and Theater owner Debbie Caffrey said, “Lucas’s ability to use social media and oversee our operations greatly improved our attendance and profitability. His expertise really helped our business thrive in a tough economy.” Besides working in Branson’s entertainment industry Case also served as a Board Member on the Downtown Branson Main Street Association (DBMA), where his organizational and marketing skills helped to promote downtown Branson and the Tri-Lakes area.

Case added, “It’s exciting to join a growing engineering company like SSE and also having the opportunity to use my social media skills to help their marketing division get going is something I am looking forward to. Companies providing professional services can greatly benefit from using the social media techniques that the internet provides and working at SSE will allow me to help others grow their business.
SSE has been recognized as one of the fastest growing companies by both Inc. 500|5000 and ZwiegWhite. Founded in 1997, many consider them to be the premier rural engineering company in Missouri. Owner Stan Schultz concluded, “Having someone with Lucas’s background will be a huge boost to our marketing efforts both here in Missouri and the federal marketplace. His political background will be a benefit to our clients and his marketing skills will continue to help us communicate our desire to help communities all across Missouri build the infrastructure they need to improve lives.”
