Chugach Government Solutions Hires Senior Vice President of Operations Support Kathleen Grimes
Chugach Government Solutions (CGS) promoted Kathleen Grimes to Senior Vice President of Operations Support. In this role, Grimes will serve as chief of staff over general and administrative support service functions.
Grimes began her government contracting career with CGS more than twenty-five years ago, at which time she was the finance director for the start-up contract for the US Department of Labor’s Alaska Job Corps Center.

Grimes leveraged this experience in her most recent position as vice president of finance, where she mentored and developed staff.
As senior vice president of operations support, Grimes will foster and develop a cohesive and strategic work team. She will prioritize customer service through innovative approaches that support Chugach’s tactical initiatives and growth strategies unique to its industries.
“Kathy brings years of experience and successes in her Chugach career,” said CGS President Tim “Hoops” Hopper. “I look forward to work with Kathy in providing outstanding customer service and moving us forward in our digital transformation.”
