Tux the Penguin

Mascot Extraordinaire

Tux came to us from Antarctica by way of the Bronx Zoo, after his long journey he was more than happy to snuggle up in a friendly accounting firm with all the treats and games he could hope for. He actually didn’t have a name when he first arrived, so after a few weeks of intense competition, one of our client’s kids won the right to name him “Tux”. 

When he’s not busy correcting us on our tax law he likes to go for a swim in the bathroom sink or watch a scary movie on Netflix. His favourite snack is popcorn and his favourite drink is A&W Root Beer. He really enjoys being the first ever Penguin Accountant and he hopes to grow our penguin client base in the years to come. 

Craig Kerswell, BBA

Operations Manager

Craig has been with Chill Group for 5 years. He has 8 years of accounting experience in various roles in both public and private practice. He has also worked with Corey in two jobs prior to coming to Chill Group. (Apparently, he is a sucker for punishment.) Craig is a graduate of the JR Shaw School of Business at NAIT with a BBA in Accounting. He successfully passed the Cumulative Final Exam (CFE) in September 2020 and is in the process of finishing up the remaining experience requirements for his CPA designation. 

Craig has volunteered on the Board of Directors at the St. Albert Rugby Football Club as the Treasurer for 4 years and currently as a Member at Large. Craig’s favourite thing about working at Chill Group is the relaxed atmosphere that allows us to cultivate productive relationships with our clients and makes it enjoyable for them to come into the office. 

In his free time Craig enjoys sports, movies and hanging out with his friends. His favourite sports are rugby (summer) and hockey (winter) and he loves dogs.
