Trevor Whipkey

Trevor is a native of Baxter Springs, KS and began his work-at-height career as an intern with Cirque du Soleil in 2010.  Shortly after the internship ended, Trevor was hired as a rigger on a large production on the Las Vegas strip and spent the next few years flying acrobats, building shows and performing maintenance.  In 2011, Trevor joined the crew of Cirque du Soleil’s “Corteo” and was introduced to rope access which is where his interest in work-at-height really began.   In 2015, Trevor achieved IRATA 3 certification and moved into industrial applications and has led teams through bridge inspections, stadium construction projects and wind energy projects.   Trevor has also spent a considerable amount of time training rope access, fall protection and safety courses.   

In 2017, Trevor started working on rope access projects exclusively and helped lead large teams through the complex construction of multiple NFL stadiums.  Trevor has also been involved in construction and maintenance of large-scale wind energy projects providing rope access and rigging support.  Trevor joined RIG fulltime in 2021 and now is a Senior Project Manager that focuses on wind energy and business development.  Trevor currently resides in Lawrence, Kansas and enjoys spending his time with his family.
