Mr. Bertram Cream
Mr. Bertram Cream came to Dayton with his family in 1970 after leaving the Air Force to work as a civilian scientist at Wright-Patterson AFB, and eventually retiring as a senior member of the Air Force Research Laboratory, tallying almost 40 years of Federal Service. Upon retiring from civil service he joined a local defense contractor and subsequently formed a successful consulting company providing support to a variety of national and local academic, medical, business, and Federal clients. Most recently, he supported the Dayton Development Coalition, (DDC) as their community focal point in support of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) movement of multiple Air Force and Navy organizations and missions to Wright-Patterson AFB. The success of this effort has been extensively documented and continues as a model for community preparations facing potential additional base realignment actions. His support to the DDC as a Senior Analyst continues. In addition to his 2013 appointment to the Library Board of Trustees, Mr. Cream is active as a volunteer at Kettering Medical Center and Goodwill/Easter Seals, and is an adjunct instructor at Sinclair Community College. He also has served on a number of local and national business advisory groups and community service boards. Mr. Cream holds a BA in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Human Factors Engineering/Experimental Psychology.
