Vasco TchakarovNext in the Runyon Roots story is Vasco Tchakarov. Vasco was born 32 years ago today in Sofia, Bulgaria. Vasco moved to the US, when he was three years old, to Monroe, MI. He spent his school years in Michigan and traveled back to Bulgaria for the summers to spend with his mom, sister and grandparents.

In high school, he began a co-op at his family’s business, Diamond Tool Supply, a diamond tool manufacturing business for the marble, terrazzo, granite and concrete grinding and polishing industry. Vasco graduated from Monroe High School in 2004 and then attended Monroe Community College for Mechanical Engineering from 2006-2008. Vasco gained an immense amount of knowledge of the concrete polishing industry working with his family business. In 2009, he decided to leave the family business and get out in the field to put his family’s tools to use. Vasco continued working in the industry from 2009-2016. He did everything from pushing squeegees, running grinders, doing edges, estimating and project management. In 2014 he started his own concrete polishing company. All of Vasco’s experience has resulted in over 8,000,000+ sq ft of successful floor resurfacing.

In December of 2016, Vasco found his way to Runyon Surface Prep where he has made tremendous strides in the industry. At Runyon, Vasco is our Technical/Sales Rep and his home base is in Houston, TX. He has brought an immense amount of experience and knowledge to Runyon’s and he has been instrumental in helping to develop our new tooling line. We are blessed that he is part of our team! Outside of work, Vasco has a beautiful Christian family – a wife and two sons. Vasco practices lifelong sobriety and assists people struggling with substance abuse to find a meaningful life through a non-profit business called, Hope For Recovery.
