Ravn Recruits Top Airline Professionals to Take Alaska’s Largest Regional Airline to ‘the Next Level’

Published September 26, 2017

Alaska’s leading regional air transportation and logistics company announced that effective immediately, it has reorganized its senior management team and installed a simpler and more efficient leadership structure following its successful recruitment of some of the airline industry’s most seasoned and successful professionals.

Ravn’s leadership reorganization will simplify the Air Group’s multi-layered executive management by eliminating several senior roles, and replacing them with a single, group-level officer team that will oversee FAA-approved leaders as well as managing the company’s three separate airlines: Hageland Aviation, Corvus Airlines, and Frontier Flying Services. 

The corporate reorganization and recruitment efforts were led by Dave Pflieger, Ravn’s recently-appointed president and CEO. 

“Operating with a ‘one company’ mindset, instead of three, will turbo-charge Ravn’s ability to capitalize on the vast potential of Alaska’s transportation and logistics market, drive a safety-first and customer-focused culture, and help our team create a world-class airline,” said Pflieger.

Members of Ravn’s newly-constituted executive team are: 

  • Steve Jackson, Chief Financial Officer
  • George Snyder, Acting Chief Operating Officer & Executive Vice President of Safety
  • Len Sloper, Senior Vice President, Airports, Cargo and Real Estate
  • George Nichols, Chief Information Officer
  • Wendy Yow, Vice President, Human Resources

Rounding out the airline’s new executive team will be a Chief Commercial Officer, for whom the company is actively recruiting.>

“Ravn has an Alaska-proud past tied to an incredibly bright future. While I have no doubt that our new world-class leadership team will take us to even greater heights, I also want to extend Ravn’s thanks to our outgoing executives from Corvus, Hageland and Frontier. Our company is extremely grateful for their hard work, dedication and assistance during this leadership transition. Mr. Jim Hajdukovich, Mr. Jim Hickerson, Mr. John Hajdukovich, and Mr. Walter Dallis, all played key roles in getting us where we are today,” said Pflieger.

Ravn Air Group is owned by investment affiliates of private equity firms J.F. Lehman & Company and W Capital Partners, with one of the company’s original founders, the Hajdukovich family, retaining a minority interest.

(Utqiagvik, Alaska) August 25, 2017—A Subway® restaurant, which is known for its fresh baked bread and offering a healthier alternative to traditionally fatty fast food, is coming to Barrow on August 26, 2017. The new restaurant is located at 1611 Okpik Street and will feature a metropolitan design in the northern most city in the United States and the 11th northernmost public community in the world.

Subway® restaurants are famous for their made-to-order Footlong and 6-inch submarine sandwiches. They are served on a variety of gourmet breads that are baked fresh in each restaurant throughout the day. Customers create their own hot or cold sandwiches by choosing from a variety of meats, fresh vegetables, cheeses and condiments, while viewing the sandwich being assembled right in front of them.

In addition to submarine sandwiches, the new Subway® restaurant at Barrow will also offer breakfast, a variety of salads, soups, chips, soft drinks, milk and sliced apples.

“I am excited to be able to bring Subway® restaurant’s delicious, nutritious product to the people of Barrow,” said John Masterson, local resident of Barrow and co-owner of the new sandwich shop. “I look forward to seeing my neighbors and invite everyone to stop by and try our world-famous submarine sandwiches.”

Subway® Founder Fred DeLuca was a 17-year-old student when he co-founded the Subway® chain in 1965. With a $1,000 loan from family friend Dr. Peter Buck, he started the venture as a way to finance his college education.

Midnight Sun Home Care Acquires Home Care Division from CareNet, Inc.

Midnight Sun Home Care, a premier senior care company in Anchorage, is pleased to announce the acquisition of another highly respected local provider’s in-home care division. CareNet, Inc. was recently approached by a national franchise for acquisition of their home care division, but chose instead to sell their home care line of business to Midnight Sun Home Care, citing the agencies’ similar values, philosophies, and Alaskan business roots as deciding factors.

CareNet, Inc. was founded in 1996 and is owned by local residents and registered nurses Brett and Lorna Mills. CareNet, Inc. will continue to offer private nursing care management, but will no longer offer in-home caregivers. They will refer those looking for in-home caregiving services to Midnight Sun Home Care.

“CareNet, Inc. has had the privilege of caring for seniors in the Anchorage community for 21 years,” says Owner Lorna Mills, RN. “We are excited to see our non-medical home care services continue under the Midnight Sun Home Care banner.”

The acquisition will provide Midnight Sun Home Care clients and their loved ones with additional coverage as the agency’s staff expands. The transition will also allow CareNet, Inc.’s caregiving staff to continue working for a locally owned company.

“We are honored to have been specifically chosen by CareNet, Inc. to carry on their in-home caregiving services, and we are excited to welcome CareNet’s dedicated caregivers to our team as we continue providing care for Alaskans by Alaskans,” says Kevin Turkington, Founder and Owner of Midnight Sun Home Care.

No. There is no pick-up service during Citywide Cleanup Week. All parties are responsible for delivering their collected trash to the Central Transfer Station, Anchorage Regional Landfill, or the Girdwood Transfer Station.
 
How much will Solid Waste Services charge me when I deliver my orange bags during the week?
Trash in official orange trash bags will be accepted for free disposal at Solid Waste Services facilities during Citywide Cleanup Week. These facilities include the Girdwood Transfer Station, Central Transfer Station, and Anchorage Regional Landfill. Directions and hours can be found on the Solid Waster Services website at Muni.org/sws To be accepted without a fee, orange bags must be delivered separately from other waste. No yard waste will be accepted.
 
What are "Free Dump Days"?
During Citywide Cleanup Week, Solid Waste Services will accept free loads from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, May 6 at the Anchorage Regional Landfill and 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. (same days) at the Girdwood Transfer Station only.
 
Please Note: Only residential waste is accepted for no fee during the Free Dump Days. All loads must be secured or covered to prevent littering in transit and must not exceed 1,000 pounds. Uncovered loads will be subject to fines.
