My name is Troy Akerlund, my father is Lyle Akerlund (Barnes), and I am a descendant of Exenia Barnes. To me, it is paramount that Chugach is successful in the future, for the preservation of our cultural heritage and the ability to provide more to our shareholders. Education-wise, I have two bachelors’ (accounting/business), an MBA, and a MS in Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics. Careerwise, I have 15+ years of experience in government contracting and aircraft manufacturing, primarily focused in: contracts, finance, project management, business development, performance management, and strategy.
With the pandemic impacting all of our lives, it is more critical than ever that we focus on business performance, stability, and growth, to not only maintain the current funding for the shareholder benefits, but provide more. I was lucky enough to start my career at Chugach, in Anchorage, through an apprenticeship, as well as have had the opportunity to receive scholarships to help me pursue my goals in education. It is my goal to ensure that future generations of shareholders and descendants, can not only have the same opportunities I have been able to have, but more. My view, is that the Board of Directors should not only be representatives of the shareholders, but also understand business and what it takes to make sound business decisions.
With that, I humbly ask for your support, to represent the shareholders of Chugach. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Troy T. Akerlund
