Moran, confirmed Fimon on the board of directors of the Alaska Mental Health Trust
JUNEAU, Alaska (KINY) – The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority announced the confirmation of trustees Agnes Moran and Kevin Fimon, who were appointed by Gov. Mike Dunleavy and unanimously confirmed by the Alaska Legislature.
Moran, a longtime resident of Ketchikan, is the executive director of Women In Safe Homes, or WISH, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and their families.
She was also a member of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly and has served on First Bank’s board of directors for nearly 20 years. Moran brings more than a decade of trust beneficiary support work to her role as trustee, along with skills in collaborative relationship building and advocacy for Alaska’s rural communities.
Trustee Kevin Fimon resides in Anchorage and brings decades of financial management experience to the Board of Trustees, having owned and operated Fimon Financial Services in Anchorage for the past 32 years. His experience in preparing tax returns, preparing financial statements, providing corporate tax advice and working with boards and corporations is an asset to the Trust board. Fimon is involved with Rotary International and has served on local councils and community school programs in Nome and Anchorage.
“With the variety of social service, financial and property issues reviewed by the Board of Trustees, I appreciate the knowledge and experience that our newly confirmed members bring to the Trust,” said Board Chair Anita Halterman. “We look forward to working with Agnes and Kevin to advance the Trust’s mission and oversee the organization and its efforts to improve the lives and circumstances of Trust beneficiaries.”
There are seven trustees who oversee the trust. Trustees are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the legislature for five-year terms.
