His board service includes work on various committees, to include: Executive, Audit, 401(k) Trustees, Shareholder Hire, Compensation, Investment and Heirship. He was elected to the position of chairman of the board in 2004, following his service as vice-chairman and 1st vice-president. Rock previously served as president and CEO of Tikigaq Corporation, and was responsible for the overall strategic guidance and vision for the village corporation.

During that time, his team won two state championships. He was elected Coach of the Year numerous times by his peers, most currently in 2009 for his tireless dedication to Point Hope’s basketball program. A graduate of Tikigaq High School, Rock went on to attend college at the University of Alaska Fairbanks where he double majored in engineering and linguistics.

1st Vice President
1st Vice President, At-Large
Eddie “Anutuqsan” Ahyakak is an at-large director for ASRC. He is firmly grounded in his family and prides himself for always putting people first. Since childhood his parents have instilled in him the value of helping others.
Growing up in between Barrow and Vancouver, Washington gave him a perspective in living two different cultures. He remembers as a child going out to the freshwater lake to harbor ice for water and going to his aapa’s hunting camp in the summer. He learned how important the land is to the people and how it is vital to respect it. Later his parents moved to Vancouver to a small farm where he learned the value of hard work. After high school, Eddie returned to his roots in Barrow and attended Ilisagvik College to gain the necessary skills to become a water plant operator. After gaining his state certificate in water plant operations he went to work as an operator with UIC. In 1998 he moved with his future wife to Fairbanks. Upon arriving he joined the union and started a new career in the oil industry working for Houston/Nana on the TAPS maintenance contract for several years. In 2003 Eddie was offered an opportunity to go to work on the Missile Defense contract at Ft. Greely with ASRC Energy Services. This gave him the opportunity to learn about another ASRC’s subsidiary. In 2009 he decided it was time to be closer to his family and started work in North Pole with Petro Star as a Refinery Operator.
Eddie and his wife Andrea have 3 children. In his free time he likes to go fishing and boating. He is also an avid runner and recently ran the Equinox Marathon. He’s currently training for the Anchorage Mayors Marathon in June of 2012 and is planning to climb Mt. Hood in Oregon this year as well. Eddie is looking forward to spring whaling with his cousin Makalik’s Crew. Eddie is a member of the American Alpine Club, Fairbanks Running Club North, and the Alaska Miners Association.
