Chugach Alaska Corporation’s (Chugach) Board of Directors announced today that Chugach Government Solutions (CGS) President Tim “Hoops” Hopper will retire, effective Jan. 1, 2022. Chugach will begin recruiting for the next CGS President in the coming months, with plans to appoint this individual on Oct. 1, 2021. Hoops will remain with Chugach through year-end to assist with the transition and integration of his successor during the fourth quarter.

“Chugach has been fortunate to have Hoops at the helm of its largest federal government contracting arm for many years. We have relied on Hoops’ deep government contracting expertise as we’ve grown CGS, and valued his leadership in shaping and building a strong team capable of carrying forward his legacy,” said Chairman of the Board Sheri Buretta. “On behalf of the Board and leadership team, we are thankful for his many years of service to Chugach and to our country, and wish Hoops and his family all the best following his retirement.”

Throughout nearly two decades with Chugach, Hoops has been a key driver for the growth and maturation of CGS. His visionary leadership has expanded CGS’ presence as a formidable competitor in the federal government contracting realm, while his mentorship and embodiment of Chugach’s core behaviors has cultivated additional leaders across the organization, including many shareholder and descendant employees. His spirit of service began long before Chugach, serving 26 years in the U.S. Air Force.

“Serving my country and supporting the warfighter and Chugach shareholders are career highlights for me,” said Hoops. “It has been a tremendous honor to work with an incredible team supporting the mission while sustaining culture, and above all, providing for our shareholders.”

Chugach will share additional information about the CGS President recruitment in the coming weeks.
