Andy Teuber Wiki – Andy Teuber Bio
Andy Teuber was an embattled CEO in Alaska, who is presumed dead after his helicopter was lost at sea.
He resigned his position as head of the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium a week before Teuber was reported missing, and the Anchorage Daily News published a story revealing an alleged case of sexual misconduct against him. That consortium is the country’s largest tribal health organization.
He was 52 years old.
Teuber resigned suddenly last week as president and chairman of the state’s largest tribal health care organization.
Authorities say they don’t yet know what led to the helicopter’s apparent crash.
Searchers spotted a yellow helicopter float among debris scattered in the water, Preston said, adding debris hasn’t been recovered yet.
That matches the equipment on the Robinson R66 Turbine Marine helicopter Teuber was described as flying from Merrill Field in Anchorage, authorities said.
The Coast Guard said he left just after 2 p.m. A family member reported him missing. She provided the Coast Guard with his last known location based on GPS software, Preston said. That location, at around 3:30 p.m.
Tuesday, was approximately two nautical miles southeast of Sugarloaf Island in the uninhabited Barren Islands.
Teuber leaves behind a new wife.
According to Stars and Stripes, Teuber was well-paid at the consortium, earning more than $1 million a year. He also served on the University of Alaska Board of Regents.
Daily News reported that he was also a member of the Kodiak Native Association and had served with the consortium since 2008.
He was married on Monday, March 1, according to Daily News.
In the wake of his disappearance, Teuber’s family released a statement to the Daily News calling the allegations “unfair, hateful, untrue, and malicious.”
“Andy Teuber was a talented, energetic, successful, and proud Alaskan,” the statement said. “We knew him as all of these things, but also as our loving, kind, and gregarious father, brother, cousin, partner, and spouse.
They added We cannot express in words the depth of our sorrow for his loss. We will have many occasions to share our happy memories of this remarkable man with his many friends and associates, and we will announce the arrangements in future communications.
The statement continues “We regret at this difficult time that we are also compelled to address the unfair, hateful, untrue, and malicious attacks recently published against Andy.
We feel that these attacks do not describe the extraordinary man whose loss we mourn so deeply. There is much more to be said on this, but for now, we request the space and time to mourn and remember our Andy as the great man we knew him to be.
We appreciate all of your kind thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.”
