Michael H. James
Michael H. James began his work career in the oilfield in 1980, working internationally as a Hydrogen Sulfide consultant and EMT. In 1987, he founded COAST, a safety consulting firm for oil drilling and production companies. He joined LoVac Environmental, a vacuum truck company, in 1990 as Safety Director, but soon migrated into sales, where he secured contracts with several petrochemical companies. He recognized that most vacuum jobs did not require a huge, expensive vacuum truck, and that insight led to his founding of Triton Industries in 1997. Over the years, he perfected his design for high performance portable vacuum systems. Mike has received patents and industry recognition for his innovations, including the Kraken continuous flow vacuum technology, and Brahman Systems
hose and cable protection.
In 2007, Mike formed Triton Farms, LLC, where he breeds registered Brahman cattle with superior genetics. Triton Farms sells both semen and cattle.
Mike grew up in Lafayette, LA, and has a B.S. in Natural Science from USL. He has served on the False River Academy School Board, and is an active member of ABBA, the American Brahman Breeder’s Association. He and his wife Lisa have three children.
