Greg Krischke was appointed to the Edmonton Regional Airports Authority (ERAA) Board of Directors as the City of Leduc’s public member on Nov. 28 during a City Council meeting. The appointment is a four-year term from Jan. 1, 2023, to Dec. 31, 2026.

“City Council is pleased that Greg Krischke has been the successful candidate for this board position,” says City of Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “As our former mayor, he has deep ties to the community and will bring a unique perspective to this role. We are confident that he understands the important relationship between the City and Edmonton International Airport.”  

Krischke is an experienced board director with more than 45 years of experience in strategic planning, fiscal management, operating in a regulatory environment and small business ownership. He also spent the early part of his career in the aviation sector, including time as the Acting Airport Manager, Edmonton International Airport (EIA) for Air Canada.

The ERAA is a community-based, financially independent, not-for-profit corporation that manages EIA. In addition to managing passenger traffic, the ERAA oversees air cargo operations in its multi-tenant "cargo village." The ERAA also owns and operates Villeneuve Airport, a general aviation facility which serves as the primary flight training facility for the Edmonton metro region.

Directors are responsible for representing what they view as being in the best interest of the Airports Authority and region, providing governance and accountability for the overall management, operation and financial performance of Edmonton Airports.

Recruitment for the position was conducted by Gallagher, a large-scale talent attraction and consulting firm.  

The City’s current appointee, Murray Hales, has served on the board for two terms and is not eligible for re-appointment.
