Posted on | Back to Posts

After more than 23 years of serving BBNC, its shareholders and the Bristol Bay region, BBNC shareholder April Ferguson, who worked as BBNC’s Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary retired in March.

During her tenure with BBNC, April was a strong mentor and empowered young Alaska Native professionals. As an executive leader, she helped develop the foundation that allowed BBNC to grow to the corporation it is today.

April represented the Bristol Bay region and served as Chair of the Alaska Federation of Natives Legislative and Litigation Committee. She has been a fierce advocate for a transparent and fair redistricting process in Alaska, and the Get Out the Native Vote initiative.

April’s commitment and dedication to BBNC’s mission and values has created invaluable opportunities for the Native community and the Bristol Bay region. April was recently inducted into the Alaska Women’s Hall of Fame and is an example of achievement through perseverance, vision, ingenuity, and strength.

BBNC is thankful for April’s countless contributions to BBNC and our lands, resources, employees and shareholders. We wish her a happy retirement!
