Southcentral Foundation Announces April Kyle as President and CEO
The Southcentral Foundation Board of Directors has selected April Kyle as its President and CEO. Kyle has been serving as interim president and CEO since August 2020.
“As we look to the future, we are confident April is the right person to lead SCF and carry on the long legacy of providing the highest level of support to SCF’s Vision and Mission,” says SCF Board of Directors Chairman James Segura in the board’s announcement.
A CIRI shareholder of Athabascan descent, Kyle was born and raised in Southcentral Alaska, spending summers with her family in Ninilchik.
Her career with Southcentral Foundation spans two decades. Prior to her year as interim president and CEO, Kyle was a key member of Southcentral Foundation’s Vice President Leadership Team as the organization’s vice president of behavioral services division.
Kyle has been part of building Southcentral Foundation’s Nuka System of Care. She was one of the first graduates of Southcentral Foundation’s Executive Leadership Experience, as well as a member of the Alaska Native Executive Leadership Program’s inaugural class at Alaska Pacific University and the Alaska Journal of Commerce’s Top Forty Under 40 class of 2013. She received her master’s degree in business administration from the University of Washington.
“It is an honor to accept the position of president and CEO,” says Kyle. “Participating in our healthcare transformation, as both an employee and a customer-owner, I have seen firsthand what is possible when decisions are driven by Alaska Native people and supported by our incredibly talented and caring workforce and partners.”
