Born in the United Kingdom, Edwin lived in many different countries before working out that Hawaii is the place to be, for ever! He has been residing on the Big Island for the last two years with his wife and daughter.
Graduating with a BSc in Civil Engineering, Edwin left England and travelled to the Far East where he spent 17 years working for an Institutional Brokerage. as an Analyst, Trader, Sales Person and Country Head. As Asia blossomed, Edwin's job led to postings in Hong Hong, Indonesia, South Africa and Korea before returning to Hong Kong as Global Head of Sales and Sales Trading. During his tenure, a strong economic tailwind and a strong company-customer focussed approach saw the company grow revenue fifteen fold to $1.5bn.
In 2006, the Lucas family decided to focus on lifestyle and moved to Whistler, BC, Canada where financial instruments were swapped for Skis, bikes and golf clubs. The long winters led to numerous trips to Hawaii and the conclusion that the Big Island should be called home.
