Arctic Slope Regional Corporation Announces Subsidiary Management Changes
After five years as president and CEO of ASRC Energy Services (“AES”), Jeff Kinneeveauk has tendered his resignation. Jeff’s last day with AES will be Friday, August 19th. “On behalf of Arctic Slope Regional Corporation’s (“ASRC”) board of directors, I thank Jeff for his service to the Corporation and wish him all the best in the future,” said Rex A. Rock Sr., president and CEO of ASRC.
Concurrent with Jeff’s resignation, ASRC is pleased to announce a series of subsidiary management changes. Doug Smith, president and CEO of Little Red Services (“LRS”) and ASRC Construction Holding Company (“ACHC”), will assume the role of president and CEO of AES effective August 19th. Prior to being the CEO of LRS and ACHC, Doug was a vice president and business unit manager of AES. Doug is active within the oil and gas industry, serving on the boards of the Alaska Support Industry Alliance and the Resource Development Council.
Joe Curgus, the long-time vice president of operations for LRS will take over as president and CEO of LRS concurrent with Doug’s transition to AES. Joe has been an essential member of the LRS team for more than 30 years and has played a critical role in the successful transition of the company into the ASRC family of companies. Joe is respected throughout the Alaska oil and gas industry as an engaged customer-focused executive.
Brady Strahl, the current president of ASRC SKW, will take over as president and CEO of ACHC. Brady has been with the ACHC family of companies since 2009. He has been a key member of the ACHC leadership and has been instrumental in improving ACHC’s financial and project performance over the past two years. Brady graduated from Gonzaga University in 2003 and was an Anchorage Journal of Commerce Top 40 under 40 award recipient in 2008.
Despite the state’s challenging economic environment, ASRC’s board of directors has never been more committed to Alaska. “I believe Doug, Joe and Brady have the skills necessary to lead AES, LRS and ACHC as these companies confront the challenges posed by the Alaska economy,” said Crawford Patkotak, ASRC board chair.
