Goldbelt shuffle complete: Dave Goade is now executive vice president of Goldbelt, and Karen Taug is vice president, under a corporate restructuring by new President and CEO Gary Droubay.
Under the plan approved by the Goldbelt board Feb. 26, Droubay will not be replaced as chief financial officer, the position he held until being tapped to replace Joe Beedle as CEO.
``Mrs. Taug has served well as the corporate controller and has been an integral part in the streamlining of the accounting systems within Goldbelt and each of its subsidiaries,'' Droubay said. ``Her promotion to vice president will allow her to take over some of the responsibilities I had as CFO while continuing her responsibilities as controller.''
Goade previously was vice president of lands. He and Taug are both shareholders in the Juneau Native corporation.
