John C. Johnson created the foundation for Bluestem Resources Group’s legacy starting in 1979. Mr. Johnson is a degreed petroleum engineer and earned an MBA taking night classes while working full-time. He cut his teeth rising through various Fortune 500 corporate positions specializing in business analysis, advising in strategy planning, feasibility studies, acquisitions, and business valuations. In 1979, he left Union Pacific’s Park Avenue corporate headquarters to take the helm of a startup family business. He grew this distribution business to nearly $15M in revenues before successfully exiting, through a business sale to a strategic acquirer. Following the business sale in 1987, Mr. Johnson started Bluestem Resources Group, Inc. as M&A business brokers and acquisitions advisors in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mr. Johnson’s leadership has been instrumental to Bluestem Resources’ success for nearly a quarter century.

Although Bluestem has always employed excellent professionals since 1987, in today’s tough deal environment, we have evolved and choose to operate lean, offering clients the highest level of senior corporate acquisitions advisor and business M&A intermediary attention and experience. Mr. Johnson is personally committing his focus to protect our clients’ and customers’ needs. We only consider partnering with or referring to carefully selected business brokers, merger and acquisition advisors, or other professionals, such as our national independent affiliates, former associates, or other specialists, when appropriate.       

Bluestem has a talented support team for our clientele, including Mr. Johnson’s Executive Assistant, Katherine Robertson, and Principal, Phoebe Johnson, whose marketing abilities and strengths have advanced and sustained Bluestem since inception. This team is well-experienced in assisting clientele, whether a corporate acquirer, selling a small or midsize business, or owners ongoing business transitions. They understand the acquisitions market and the professional M&A process for maximizing business valuations and realizations from business sales.
