Who is Ed Hitchcock?

Born in Paterson, New Jersey, Ed Hitchcock attended the University of Texas at El Paso and Scottsdale Community College in Arizona. He served with the United States Air Force during the Korean conflict.

Ed had a very successful career with the automotive industry. He began his career in 1952 by unloading boxcars for the General Motors (GM) warehouse in El Paso, and later worked his way up to Zone Distribution Manager of the Chevrolet Motor Division. In 1963, he left GM to become the sales manager of Rudolph Chevrolet in Phoenix, and eight years later he established his own dealership, Edward Oldsmobile, in Phoenix. Ed led his dealership to many honors including the prestigious Oldsmobile Elite 100 Award.

In 1977 Ed purchased what is now the Lobo Ranch. The Lobo Ranch is a cow and calf operation of Corriente cattle which are used for Rodeo livestock.

Because of his passion for the way of life of the western ranch and the heritage of the American cowboy, Ed created the Hitchcock Foundation in 1983 to forever preserve the Lobo Ranch as a working ranch.
