ANCHORAGE — It’s not every day that an Alaska business sets a national precedent, but a father-to-daughter transition has done just that.
Dia Matteson has become the new president and director of Motorcycle Times Inc., which owns and operates the Harley-Davidson dealerships in Anchorage, Soldotna and Wasilla. At 25 years old, she is now Harley’s youngest female dealer.
Dia Matteson took over the business after her father, Barry Matteson, retired on June 14 after holding the region’s Harley franchise for 37 years.
