Bio: “It all started with a motocross race,” Jay Hutchinson began.
According to the story, Hutchinson, the DJ and Permian Operations Chief for Moser Energy Systems, first began working for the company because a friend of his, and fellow motocross racer, called him one day and asked if he knew anyone that knew how to work on generators. Hutchinson did – himself. Shortly thereafter, he was introduced to the COO of Moser Energy at the time, and the two hit it off famously. They bonded over motocross and it wasn’t long before Hutchinson was being sold on the idea of working for Moser Energy Systems. It was an idea he eventually bought.
“I met the COO at the time, because his son raced,” Hutchinson stated. “So after talking to him, I decided very quickly that I wanted to be a part of Moser. I wanted to be a part of that family company. I got insights into the whole background of the company and I liked the environment. I liked the idea of a small, family company.”
So Hutchinson signed on. He accepted a position as the Operations Chief out of the Permian and DJ basins in Wyoming.
“Anything that requires managing operations is what I do,” he said. “Putting units out on rent, managing the team, doing some sales work, customer relations, business relations – it’s a broad spectrum.”
And that’s what Hutchinson likes. He likes to be a jack-of-all-trades. That ambition actually led to a new position with the company, one which requires him to move to Texas.
“It’s kind of bittersweet,” Hutchinson waxed. “I grew up in Wyoming and this is where all of my friends and family are. So packing up my family and moving across the country is a bit nerve-wracking, but it’s also very exciting, career-wise. My wife and daughter and soon-to-be-newborn daughter are all on board, though, so I couldn’t ask for a better situation.”
Hutchinson wouldn’t have done anything if his girls weren’t on board. Family is important to him, which is why he even wanted to work for Moser Energy Systems to begin with. It was that family-like atmosphere that first drew him in. But Hutchinson also values the relationships that he builds with customers.
“I like building relationships with my guys, my customers,” he said. “Basically, I look at the oil field in general as a family. On the rigs out here, the guys that work in this area, the girls that work in this area; they’re spending more time with these people than with their own families, more often than not. You’re literally building another family. You’re building a bond and a relationship with people that a lot of people don’t get to do.”
And that’s what Moser Energy Systems is all about – creating bonds and building relationships and taking care of each other, from the employees to the clients.
“Moser was founded on service,” Hutchinson said. “We exist to serve our customers and to take care of our employees. It’s a small company. There are competitors with double or triple the people that we have. We’re a smaller company, but we serve our customers on a bigger scale. We do more with less.”
Doing more with less is exactly what Moser Energy Systems is all about. They’ve been doing it for years, from the bitter cold of North Dakota to the extreme heat of West Texas.
Now, with Hutchinson’s move and his visions for the future, Texas is about to get even bigger.
“There’s a new sheriff in town,” Hutchinson said with a wink.
And to think – it all started with a motocross race.
