JUNEAU - Shareholders of Juneau-based Huna Totem Corporation elected three board members to serve three-year terms at the annual meeting June 7 in Hoonah. They also chose a new chairman of the board.
About 81 percent of shareholders voted by proxy or in person to re-elect Russell Dick of Juneau, Bertha Franulovich of Seattle, and Paul White, Jr., of Juneau.
In a board meeting after the annual meeting, the nine-member board tapped Russell Dick as the new chairman, Edward Davis as vice chairman, and William "Ozzie" Sheakley as secretary.
Dick is the Group Operations Director for Sealaska Corp., Southeast's regional Alaska Native corporation, and he plans to attend graduate school this fall at Stanford University. He is the son of Albert Dick, who was chairman since 1989.
A former natural resources manager and industrial engineer for Sealaska, the new chairman has a bachelor's degree in business with an accounting emphasis from the University of Phoenix, a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from Stanford University, and an associate's degree in business administration from Grays Harbor College.
Huna Totem has approximately 900 shareholders with ancestral ties to Glacier Bay. The corporation's key business interests are in tourism and managed investment portfolios.
