Congratulations Ryan Klages on your promotion to Operations Manager!October 2016
Outland is happy to announce the recent promotion of Ryan Klages to Operations Manager of Manitoba. Ryan started with Outland as a tree planter during the spring of 2002 in Kapuskasing, ON. He spent the past 6 years working primarily in Manitoba in Outland's silviculture division; the first year as a tree planter, followed by three years of crew-bossing and two years supervising planting operation. Ryan transitioned into Outland's remote camps and catering division in 2013 during the flood relief campaign in High River, AB. From there, Ryan went on to manage several remote camp operations throughout the west. Ryan obtained a degree in Political Science from the University of Ottawa and in his spare time he enjoys getting away to Tofino to surf.
"I really enjoyed the mental and physical challenges of planting, and really fell in love with the idea of escaping every summer with 40 people whom would eventually become your best friends. Over my 13 years with Outland I have planted trees in every province from New Brunswick to British Columbia and worked in virtually every field position, from planter to camp manager. I'm looking forward to the new challenge!"
