ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Dale R. Lindsey, a longtime Alaska entrepreneur, is retiring as president and chief executive of Harbor Enterprises Inc. in Seward.
The retirement is effective Jan. 1, the company said. Lindsey will remain chairman and continue to own the company with his wife, Carol.
Lindsey will be succeeded by R.J. ''Skip'' Reierson, senior vice president and chief financial officer.
The Lindseys bought the company in 1959. Harbor is a major fuel distributor in Alaska and the Yukon through its subsidiaries Petro Marine Services, Alaska Oil Sales, Petro Express and North 60-Degrees Petro.
Lindsey was named ''Alaskan of the Year'' by the state Chamber of Commerce in 1995, and he and his wife were inducted into the Alaska Business Hall of Fame two years later. He has been a director of the Alaska Sealife Center, Northrim Bank and the Alaska Railroad.
