The Kuskokwim Corporation (TKC) CEO Maver Carey retired from her role on February 1, but it wasn’t announced on the corporation's Facebook page until Tuesday, Feb. 5.
The post, which is a picture of a press release, says that Carey left her role to “focus on her family and new opportunities.”
TKC's Board Chair, Dunia Morgan, said in a statement that Carey "grew TKC from a small Alaska Native Corporation into one of Alaska's Top 49 businesses."
TKC did not give any details beyond the press release. Andrea Gusty, the vice president of corporate affairs and TKC’s chief of staff, says that the company will announce Carey’s replacement at the end of the week.
Carey had been with The Kuskokwim Corporation for 24 years. She became the CEO in 2003, a role she held until her retirement. TKC, a village native corporation, represents 10 communities and nearly 4,000 shareholders in the Middle Kuskokwim region. The corporation owns the surface rights where the proposed Donlin gold mine, which could be one of the biggest in the world, is planned.
