On March 16, 2021, during a special meeting, the NANA Board of Directors approved an organizational leadership restructure. In the new structure, a stand-alone chief executive officer (CEO) will report directly to the NANA board to ensure NANA is best positioned to benefit shareholders and will oversee regional initiatives. A separate president and chief operating officer (COO) will also report to the NANA board and lead NANA’s corporate shared services, strategic business operations, and management of the portfolio of NANA companies and investments.
“This structure helps NANA best prepare for growth and the significant opportunities ahead of us, while continuing to meet the needs of our shareholders and region,” says Linda Lee, NANA board chair.
The NANA board is commencing a thorough and deliberate search for candidates to fill the NANA CEO role. The CEO will work directly with the board to ensure shareholder interests are protected and enhanced. The board looks forward to announcing the appointment of a new CEO in the near future.
NANA’s Interim President and CEO Bill Monet has been named NANA’s president and COO. Monet will remain Akima’s president and CEO, a role he has held since 2011, and will also continue as NANA’s interim CEO until a permanent replacement can be found.
