Togi (pronounced: Koh-nee) Letuligasenoa is passionate about giving back to his community. For the last two decades, this lifelong Alaskan has dedicated his skills to youth in the Interior through mentorship and coaching of both hockey and softball. He also currently chairs the Nanook Athletic Alliance committee, which partners with the University of Alaska Fairbanks to support their Collegiate Athletic programs.

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be joining the board of directors for a foundation that has enacted so much positive change across our state.” said Togi Letuligasenoa. “This is an opportunity that has the ability to help shape and improve the lives of all Alaskans for generations to come.” 

Letuligasenoa serves as the director of operations for Brice Incorporated. He started with the company at age 14 and has worked his way up through various positions over the last 26 years. His current role oversees three companies, which mainly work in rural Alaska and Villages across the state, in marine logistics, construction and oilfield service and support.

“We are thrilled to welcome Togi to the Foundation’s board of directors,” said Board Chair Adam Gibbons. “He brings deep-rooted community connections and experience in Fairbanks and across rural Alaska that will enrich our board grantmaking and strategy discussions. We are lucky to have him at our table.”

Letuligasenoa attended Lathrop High School and the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. He currently resides in Fairbanks, a place he says will always be home.
