Chugach Alaska

The Alaska Native regional corporation for the Prince William Sound and the northern Gulf of Alaska is promoting an executive to Interim CEO while searching for a permanent hire. Angie Astle is currently Chugach Alaska’s CFO, executive vice president of finance, and president of Chugach Investment Holdings.

As interim CEO, Astle is responsible for all Chugach Alaska’s federal and commercial business lines and the 4,500 employees who support them. She continues to work closely with Chairman of the Board Sheri Buretta and President Josie Hickel to advance the corporation’s overarching strategic plan.

“I’m honored to continue working alongside the board, executive leadership team, employees, and partners focused on Chugach’s legacy of improving the lives of its shareholders,” Astle says. “Although we continue to navigate a challenging business environment, I believe Chugach has the financial strength and operational agility to create a more efficient and profitable corporation that can create sustainable value for the long-term.”

Astle has been with Chugach Alaska since the ‘90s and became a member of the executive team in 2010. Prior to joining Chugach, she worked at Deloitte and Touche as a senior auditor. Astle holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance and a master’s in accounting from the University of Montana. She has been a Certified Public Accountant in Alaska since 1997, a Chartered Global Management Accountant, and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and of Financial Executives International.
