Mike Ronnie

Project Manager

Mike has been a project manager since 2016 and recently joined Alair Homes – Red Deer in February 2021. He has always enjoyed building things from start to finish, dating back to his childhood when he would play with Lego or model cars. Mike holds a Bachelor of Science in Business with a major in management, marketing, and international business from Minot State University, North Dakota. During that time, he played college baseball for four years on a scholarship.

Mike is amazed at how connected the Alair network is. He is honoured to be part of the team atmosphere that has been established. In terms of what he brings to the team, he is known for his organization and dedication to getting the job done well and on time.

Mike often refers to building a new custom home as a "journey." To him, it's more than just constructing a new house or renovation. It starts as a business relationship, followed by creating a vision and game plan, and finally executing the plan. His ultimate goal is to build someone's dream space and develop a lasting relationship in the process.

Mike spends his free time with his wife Teale and their two young boys Holden and Weston. In the summer, they enjoy biking, camping, and playing soccer and tee ball outdoors. In the winter, the boys are just starting to get into skating and sledding.

Aaron Kerchinsky

Project Manager

Aaron Kerchinsky is a Project Manager for Alair Red Deer and is an expert in construction with a well-balanced skill set for his role. With 20 years in the building industry he has extensive experience in different roles, including windows and doors, framing, and estate-style and log homes. After working as a carpenter for a local builder, he assumed the role of site supervisor and built many homes over the course of seven years. He has obtained a project management certificate, and spent a few years contracting before joining the Alair team to manage larger projects. Aaron is known for a steady and consistent approach that is often an asset through the ebbs and flows of construction.

Aaron enjoys Alair’s approach to team building and focused checkpoints on training and improvement. He stated that no other builders take the time to pause even in the busiest season. Another enjoyable thing for him is to share experiences with the Alair partners; both successes and failures.

In his free time, Aaron loves spending time outdoors gardening, fishing, camping, and snowboarding. He and his wife work with the Canadian Ski Patrol at their local hill and have their two boys out snowboarding with us as much as they can. When he was a child, he dreamed of being a Forest Ranger.
