Meet the Owners

Simple Energy’s owners/operators, Kinson Craft and Rob Stenger have over 65 years of experience and are specialists in their fields.

Kinson Craft began his career in petroleum marketing with Wyatt Energy in 1990 and later with Johnson & Dix Fuel Corp., becoming the company’s top liquid product seller. Prior to forming Simple Energy, Kinson managed the largest retail fuels division of Johnson & Dix.

Starting in the business in 1992, Rob has held a variety of operations and management positions with Dead River Company, Irving Oil Corporation, and Johnson & Dix Fuel Corp. With his many years of experience, he has developed an in-depth knowledge of delivery and service operations and the many ins and outs of purchasing fuel in the volatile commodities market.

As a team, their entrepreneurial spirit and just great business smarts are reflected in all the ways Simple Energy’s business has expanded over the years – propane, biofuel, heat pumps and solar, generators, adding electricians and plumbers to the services Simple Energy provides, the Outdoor Living Showroom, and an in-house training program to bring young talent into our trades.

Kinson and Rob view their employees and customers as family. All are welcome to walk into their office to chat, discuss, resolve issues, recommend, complain, or to simply get a personal tour of our beautiful office and showroom. Everyone’s voice is valid, and everyone’s opinion is considered.
