Fairbanks, Alaska (KINY) – State of Alaska facilities will be led by Daniel “Danny” Gibson, who recently accepted the position of Director, Division of Facility Services (DFS) for the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF). His first day will be Monday, Nov. 13, 2023. Danny most recently served as DFS Division Operations Manager.
“While we often take the heat, light, and water systems for granted, it’s actually a challenge to keep 1,800 facilities going in Alaska’s harsh environments. Our success is due to the hardworking team of professionals at DFS,” said Director Gibson. “I look forward to continue to work with the team to modernize our facilities, extend the life of our buildings, and continue to serve Alaskans.”
The DFS includes Statewide Public Facilities (Design & Construction), Maintenance, and operations to support multi-departmental facilities statewide, and Statewide Leasing. Each section supports the entire State’s 1,800 facilities, from three major geographic hubs: Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. The Division is staffed by over 150 personnel of various disciplines and specialties.
Mr. Gibson attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks. He lives in Fairbanks with his wife Sarah, and their three children.
