Energy Division Manager - Trevor King
I live on a third generation family farm, 3 miles west of Warren, with my wife Kim and our four sons - Colton, Trey, Karson and Rhet. My hobbies include watching my 4 boys play hockey, hunting, boating and spending time with my family at our cottage on Netley Creek.
Even though I am not involved with as much farming activities of my own anymore, my roots run deep within the farming community as well as in the Cooperative movement, with a family history of loyal membership and leadership in our local Cooperatives.
When I was 16 and 17 years old I attended the Co-op youth leadership seminars at Camp Wannacomeback in Clear lake, with my first year being sponsored by Marquette Coop and second year by South Interlake Credit Union. Both Co-operatives were formed in this local area.
I began my career with Marquette Coop in the spring of 2011 as a part time fuel truck driver and was hired 2 weeks later as a full time driver. In late 2012 I found myself being trained as Petroleum Manager, and in 2018 and 2019 Marquette Co-op's Board and Management sent me to FCL in Saskatoon for a 4-week group training in Retail Management.
When the amalgamation with Elm Creek Co-op came to fruition, I moved into the position of Energy Division Manager for Prairie Roots Consumers Co-operative.
I have been involved in seeing the Petroleum Division grow from 2 Tandem axle fuel trucks to 5 tandem axle trucks with 2 triple axle Pup trailers in our fleet. I have watched Our fuel volume grow from 9 million litres, and it is expected to meet, or surpass, 24 million litres in 2020. Our bulk oil sales and Energy Equipment continue to climb annually.
I am supported by a great Fuel Team of drivers who do what they need to do to serve our membership. Thanks to Neal Smith, Blaine Becker, Darren Major and Perry Hildebrandt and for their outstanding customer service that has taken us through our busiest seasons and our most challenging year ever.
I am proud to be part of the growth that each of these 2 Co-operatives has achieved, and sustained, and am excited for the future growth opportunities for all departments. It has been a pleasure to work with such a great team.
Our Fuel Team and I look forward to serving our communities with all of your Energy, Lubricant, Storage and Equipment Handling needs.

Driver Salesman - Neal Smith
In March 2021 I will celebrate my 15th year with the Co-op. I have lived in the area my entire life and enjoy working in the community I call home. In the past 15 years I have been witness to a lot of growth and changes - from 2 trucks, to 3 and now 5 with the amalgamation with Elm Creek. Currently, 2 trucks are set up to pull a pup out soon there will be a 3rd pup. Another notable change was changing from a top loading bulk plant to a computerized bottom loading system, with the relocation of the bulk plant to the newer corporate plant in Warren.
I have been with Elm Creek and Prairie Roots Co-op for over 9 years. I began my career with the Co-op as a student, being a General Duty Clerk to start. I became Petroleum Manager for Elm Creek Co-op On May 1st 2013. With the Amalgamation of our Co-ops, I now am the Energy Sales Representative for the Elm Creek Area. I have extensive experience in hardware and petroleum products and enjoy serving our members.
I was born and raised here in Elm Creek. In my free time, chances are you will catch me out on the lake fishing, or in the bush hunting. I am very excited to provide the service needed to all customers in any which way possible.
Driver Salesman - Blaine Becker
I moved to Manitoba in 2005 and have lived in the Woodlands area since 2008, with my wife and daughter.
I enjoy playing slow pitch and fishing during the summer months. During the winter it’s curling and ice fishing. I have been driving for 20 years and started with Marquette co-op 8 years ago after 12 years driving for Gardewine.
