Chugach Alaska Corp. has announced the appointment of Daniel Fenza as president and chief operating officer, effective March 1. Fenza will succeed Sheri Buretta, who will remain as chairman of the board and interim chief executive officer.
Fenza’s mandate will be to lead CAC’s corporate services and oversee its family of companies and investments. He served for the previous 20 years with the corporation’s largest government contracting firm, Chugach Government Solutions, most recently as vice president of business intelligence and innovation. Prior to that, he advanced through a variety of operations and subsidiary president roles.
“The board is confident that Dan, in partnership with the rest of the executive team, will continue to lead with our core behaviors and culture at the forefront and leverage the significant opportunities ahead,” Buretta said. “2020 represented one of Chugach’s strongest years yet, with higher operating profit than any year in Chugach’s history.”
CAC officials said plans are to appoint an additional stand-alone CEO later this year to lead the company’s shareholder community value center alongside Fenza and under guidance of the board of directors.
