Board elects Mahan to serve as Vice Chair

In a unanimous vote, First National Bank Alaska’s Board of Directors recently elected Lucy Mahan to the position of Vice Chair.

A licensed professional counselor with offices in Anchorage and Homer, Mahan resides in Homer where her family fishes commercially. She graduated from Anchorage's West High and earned degrees from the University of Colorado and Alaska Pacific University.

Mahan owns and facilitates Transitional Counseling LLC. She is the sister of Bank President and Board Chair Betsy Lawer and daughter of the late D.H. Cuddy, the renowned Alaskan pioneer and banker who died earlier this year.

“The importance of helping Alaskans achieve their dreams is something I learned from my father,” said Mahan, who first joined the board in 2013. “I hope to continue to apply that knowledge, coupled with my current skills, to ensure his enduring legacy is a strong, local bank that helps Alaska neighbors and communities succeed.”

Joining Mahan on the board are Lawer, Dr. Maurice Coyle, Perry Eaton, Margy Johnson, Jane Klopfer, Loren H. Lounsbury and Fran Ulmer.

Alaskan-owned and operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and branches in 18 communities throughout the state. Visit for more information about Alaska’s largest locally-owned bank and access to efficient and secure online banking services.
