Director of Maintenance
Trevor was one of the very first employees ever hired at Kreos. Trevor is the Director of Maintenance and is responsible for overseeing Central Aircraft Maintenance (CAM). This includes regulatory compliance, scheduling and tracking. Trevor graduated from Southern Alberta Institute of Technology with a diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Technology. He has an incredible attention to detail, no wonder he was a goalie in junior hockey.
Living at the lake gives Trevor and his family lots of time to enjoy their passion for the outdoors.
Quality Assurance Manager
This is the guy you want making sure our aircraft are safe. Bartt joined Central Aircraft Maintenance (CAM) in 2009 as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer. His current role within CAM is Quality Assurance Manager. Bartt has been instrumental in the growth of CAM, bringing new approaches to problem solving and finding efficiencies.
When Bartt isn’t leading his team at CAM he enjoys camping and fishing with his family and hunting in the fall.

Regional FBO Manager (Saskatoon)
Her smile is infectious and her attention to detail is precise. When you walk into the FBO (fancy language for customer lounge) Sherry will be the happiest person you meet all day. Whatever you need during your time spent with Kreos, she will work hard to bring it to reality.
Sherry is also one of the first employees hired at Kreos. She helped design the interiors of both our Regina and Saskatoon locations. Her calm and organized demeanor will help you be efficient with your time while at Kreos and get all your questions answered quickly and correctly. Sherry loves to travel and learn about what else the world holds for her and her family.
Fuel Operations Manager
Aaron – better known as “Chico” – is our resident aviation fuel expert and FBO Manager at our Regina location.
Chico is never afraid to speak his mind – and his matter of fact approach makes him a key driver in getting things done at Kreos.
Manager of Special Projects
Scott’s portfolio is one of the largest at Kreos. As General Manager of the FBO and Fuel world, he works closely with Chico and Sherry to ensure smooth operations in both cities. He also keeps an eye on the many buildings and pieces of equipment that keeps Kreos going. And, if you are in the market for purchasing an aircraft, this is the person you want to talk to.
If you’re lucky, you might also get the chance to fly with him – he’s one of Kreos’s longest employed pilots!
