Chugach Alaska Corporation (Chugach) hosted a celebration to recognize the founding of the corporation and the 45 years of history that Chugach has enjoyed since ANCSA established Alaska’s regional corporations.

The celebration took place on the evening of January 27 at Anchorage’s Dena’ina Center. Employees representing many Chugach companies attended the semi-formal affair. Family and friends also took part in the festivities and fun.

CEO Gabriel Kompkoff officially started the party and shared a few words about the success that has allowed Chugach to be a leader in its portfolio of government contracting, facilities services and energy industries. His remarks centered on the company’s proud heritage and the direction he wants to see the company take in 2017 and in the years to come.

Strong leadership was the number one factor that Kompkoff attributed to Chugach’s success. Moreover, Kompkoff stated Chugach’s leaders are only successful based on the support they receive from the employees throughout the organization, and this is where Chugach stands apart from its competitors.

Kompkoff also highlighted the recent acquisition of Rex Electric & Technologies and the diversification that has allowed Chugach to broaden the services it provides. This new direction coupled with current ventures will place Chugach on the path to reach $1 billion in revenue by the end of 2017.

With the formalities of the evening done, Kompkoff demonstrated bold leadership and led attendees to the center stage and kicked the party into gear with the evening’s first dance.
