John Tucker

John Tucker is the CEO of Vacutech in Sheridan, WY.

John was born and raised in San Diego, CA and spent most of his young adult life managing various divisions in the California area in the family business.  John left California in the early 80’s to begin his own business in Denver.  He sold his business at the age of 36 and “retired”    John spent the next 15 years developing real estate, and offering his services in several corporate “turn arounds”. 

In 2004 John and his brother Tom formed Vacutech in Denver and began growing the company.  Vacutech thrived in Denver and after a period of time “out grew” their manufacturing facility. After careful investigation and exploration, the decision to move Vacutech to Sheridan, WY became a reality.  John oversaw the building and completion of the 45,000 square ft manufacturing facility on the north end of Main street  and Vacutech officially opened it’s doors in Sheridan in January 2012. 

Vacutech currently employs 125 individuals and ships product all over the world.

J.D Wasserburger

J.D. Wasserburger talks about starting an oil field service company to finance his ranching hobby.

Join e2e Wyoming at the Petroleum Club at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20th to hear J.D. Wasserburger talk about his experience diversifying a ranching operation to the oilfield and eventually to the banking industry.  J.D. will draw from his experience in three industries to talk about what he's learned in business.   

 

J.D. grew up on the family ranch outside of Lusk and after attending UW he returned to the ranch in 1978.  In 1980 J.D. started an oilfield service business, Buck Creek Freight Inc., because, "It was easier to make a buck in the oilfield than in agriculture." 

 

Over the years J.D. has been successful growing Buck Creek and the ranch.  In the mid-90's J.D. partnered with a few other people to buy the Lusk State Bank.  The experience taught him that there are, "Nice ways to make money."
