ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Ahtna Inc. has hired a new president.
Ken Johns of Copper Center was hired to fill the top job until the corporation's annual meeting in June, said John Craig, chairman of the regional Native corporation's board.
Johns replaces former Ahtna resident and chief executive officer Darryl Jordan who was dismissed last month after an 8-1 vote of the board.
Johns will take a leave of absence from his current position as president and chief executive officer of the Copper River Native Association. Johns currently serves on the board of the Alaska Federation of Natives.
Jordan's removal followed months of allegations of mismanagement of the Glennallen-based corporation's assets.
