People Profile – Stewart Proctor

Meet Stewart Proctor, our General Aviation Operations Manager based in Christchurch. Stewart has recently achieved an incredible milestone in his career, reaching his 25 year anniversary working for Shell, Greenstone Energy and Z. Congratulations Stewart.

Z Career: I’ve worked for Z and previously Shell Aviation for 25 years. I started as an aircraft refueller at Christchurch Airport then progressed to Christchurch Airport Depot Manager. From there, I went into the New Zealand General Aviation Operations Manager role for Shell Aviation, and now Z Energy.

Favourite part of the job: Fuel quality is the most important aspect of the General Aviation business, and at Z, we have top quality fuels to work with and we perform more checks and tests on our General Aviation fuels than anyone else. I also have some of the best and most committed contractors in NZ working with me.

So the favourite part of the job for me is knowing that our customers are in the very best hands and that we do everything possible to ensure that their safety is not compromised.

Vision for the future of Z Energy: My vision is to realise an extraordinary future for General Aviation where customers choose us above all others.

Hobbies/interests outside of work: I’ve recently retired from rugby refereeing and now spend my Saturdays watching from the side-lines, from behind the posts actually.

This might sound a bit cheesy but I enjoy being, that is … being with my wife … being with my adult children… being with friends… being at the rugby… just being.
