Employee Spotlight

Captain Chris MacAdams

SkyWest CRJ Captain Chris MacAdams, MSP shows by example what it means to put passengers first.  Once, after deplaning to switch aircraft, Chris noticed an older gentleman still waiting for wheelchair assistance.  After checking with the customer service agent, Chris decided that he would personally push the gentleman to his gate so we would not miss his connecting flight.  It’s that kind of exceptional service that prompts Captain Chris’ crews to call him “exemplary” and to say they are “proud to have him as a SkyWest Captain.”

Alexander Garcia

Handy, inventive, speedy, intelligent and resourceful are words Alexander Garcia’s teammates use to describe him. A great mechanic not only makes accurate repairs, but keeps the crew informed of the progress and the expected timeline for completion. Crews flying in and out of Chicago know they can expect this from Alexander Garcia.

Alexis Crockett

Alexis is relatively new to the SkyWest family, but has already built a solid reputation as a team player with a heart of gold. One coworker said about Alexis, “she is an inspiring woman…her kindness and love have not only touched me but those around us…it is a pleasure working with her.”
