Eric Duerr

I am a native small town Oklahoman and currently reside in Tulsa with my wife Abby and two daughters: Isla and Ryan.  After studying economics at the University of Oklahoma I furthered my education at Oklahoma Christian University with a master’s degree in business before beginning my career in the oilfield with ConocoPhillips.

As my career progressed, I transitioned to multiple positions in the oilfield from Alaska to Aberdeen with ConocoPhillips, Apache Corporation, and Marathon Oil.

In 2011, I worked at Apache Corporation in Tulsa, Oklahoma where I immediately met Bucky.  Bucky had a great relationship with my manager, and I worked hand in hand with his key account representative, Shannon Ross, in the management of oil country tubulars.  Bucky was a beloved friend and colleague and I feel his legacy lived on with me through Shannon.

Currently, I hold the position of Purchasing Manager at McElroy Manufacturing where I am responsible for optimizing product flow to all facilities while ensuring cost, quality, and delivery are optimized.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time travelling, being outdoors, playing golf, and primarily spending time with my wife and children.
