Palmer, Alaska – January 9, 2019 – MTA, Alaska’s premier technology company, announced the appointment of Alaska business and real estate veteran Ken Kincaid to its Board of Directors.
Kincaid, a 35-year MTA member, has most recently served on the Board of Directors for the Mat-Su Health Foundation (MSHF), where he was brought on to help navigate the complex purchase of an additional ownership stake in the Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. He serves on MSHF’s committees for Governance, Program, CEO Evaluation, and is the chair of its Finance committee. Since joining in 2012, MSHF’s long-term investments, investments from joint ventures, and grants to the community have more than doubled.
Kincaid previously worked for 18 years at the Anchorage office of commercial real estate appraisal company Shorett & Riely, which later became Kincaid & Riely after he became the sole proprietor. He and his wife built a successful real estate investment company focused on single and multi-family rentals and later including retail, medical and industrial properties. This portfolio today totals more than 100,000 square feet of commercial space in the Palmer, Wasilla and Anchorage areas.
“Ken has a wide range of successful business experience in Alaska, and he’s committed an incalculable amount of time and resources to helping build our community over the years,” said Michael Burke, CEO of MTA. “We know he will be a valuable voice on our Board of Directors and are looking forward to having him help move MTA and Alaska forward in the years ahead.”
“Throughout my career my focus has been on serving the community, from increasing residential and commercial real estate in the area to helping the Mat-Su Regional Medical Center grow,” said Kincaid. “With all of the similar community-focused work MTA is currently doing and has planned, I’m excited to join its Board of Directors as it looks forward to continued technology innovation for its members.”
Kincaid has also served on the Alaska Board of Real Estate Appraisers, the Mat-Su Borough Board of Equalization and numerous church and school leadership boards.
