FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Doyon Ltd., the Interior Native corporation, will soon have a leader at the helm again.
Doyon's board of directors plan to announce their choice for corporation president on Jan. 5.
The board's recruitment committee has received 16 applications, according to board chairman Mike Irwin. The committee has interviewed candidates for the position.
Irwin said the panel will send the names of two finalists to the board, which will make the decision.
The corporation has been without a permanent president since Rosemarie Maher died of a heart attack in July. James Mery, a Doyon senior vice president, has been acting president since then.
Maher's death also created a vacancy on Doyon's board, whose remaining members decided not to fill her seat until elections this coming March. Five seats, including Maher's, are up for election next year.
