The Flyers have announced that Sponsorship and Marketing Manager Kerry Wilson has decided to step down from his position with the team.
“Kerry has worn many hats with the club over the years, and he took on a huge task with the sponsorship last spring just as the pandemic was starting,” said Flyers General Manager Jeff Jeanson.
“Kerry’s work with sponsors and the relationships he’s built has been fantastic. He’s helped us position the Flyers for long-term success and it’s a big loss, but we’re excited for him at the same time.”
Wilson was also the team’s head athletic trainer, in addition to his full-time career as a paramedic with Manitoba Southern Health.
“We’re hoping Kerry and every front line worker or medical professional can get some rest when this pandemic is over.”
Wilson spent over ten years with the Flyers, and was as passionate about the game as anyone – on and off the ice.
“The pandemic has been a massive challenge for a lot of people, and the team and our business is no different,” said Flyers coach Kelvin Cech.
“For myself and the players, we’re certainly going to miss him, but he’s dealt with a lot in the past year and he’s seen a lot. People like Kerry are the glue that holds junior hockey together. I’m happy he’s leaving us in a good position, with the ship pointed in the right direction.”
