Sealaska board appoints new CEO

JUNEAU (AP) — Sealaska Corp. is getting a new president and CEO.

The board of the Juneau-based regional Native corporation announced Tuesday it has appointed Anthony Mallott to take the helm, beginning June 28.

The Juneau Empire says Mallott is the son of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Byron Mallott, a former Sealaska president and CEO who still sits on the corporation's board. Anthony Mallott is listed in state records as one of his father's deputy treasurers.

Anthony Mallott joined Sealaska in 2006. At the corporation, he has held the position of treasurer and chief investment officer.

Mallott is replacing Chris McNeil Jr., who is retiring after 13 years as president and CEO.
