Lucas Oil Promotes, Adds Key Staff to Leadership Team

Jason Bonikowske has been named general counsel, and Nicole York and Megan Burakiewicz have been promoted to VP roles.

Lucas Oil Products has announced three new additions to its leadership team, hiring Jason Bonikowske as general counsel and promoting Nicole York to vice president of finance and Megan Burakiewicz to vice president of human resources.

Prior to joining Lucas Oil, Bonikowske spent 16 years at CSM Sport and Entertainment (formerly JMI), where he oversaw the legal operations, developed internal governance policies, advised executives on risk mitigation, and routinely negotiated high-quality sport and entertainment agreements. 

In York’s new role as vice president of finance, she will serve as a financial adviser to the executive team, supervising activities including tax preparation, gathering and analyzing financial data, and preparing financial reports. According to Lucas Oil, she has proven herself an extremely capable, knowledgeable and dedicated Accounting Specialist, and is very deserving of her appointment to the leadership team. In 2021, York was recognized by the Indiana CPA Society by receiving their Emerging Leader Award, which is given to up-and-coming CPA professionals who made significant contributions to the overall success of their employer.

Building on her previous role as director of people operations, Burakiewicz will continue to foster a flourishing company culture and growth opportunities as vice president of human resources. In addition to her human resources background, Burakiewicz is adept at business operations and change leadership, aptitudes that amplify her understanding of executive team needs and objectives.
