A Message from CIRI CEO Swami Iyer

Creating value for our company and stakeholders

CIRI CEO Swami Iyer

I was happy to meet many of you at my first Shareholder meetings since becoming your CEO! We had excellent turnouts at our spring Information Meetings, held April 20 in Anchorage and May 4 in Puyallup, Washington. Regularly sharing information about our company—how CIRI continually strives to be well-diversified and financially strong—is an important part of our business strategy. Clear and open communication results in stronger relationships, increased business opportunities, and it inspires confidence in our Shareholders and Descendants.

Being your CEO is an enormous privilege, and one I do not take for granted. My work is focused on developing and implementing a strategy that drives increased operational performance and growth to create greater value for our Shareholders and their families.

To that end, in March, the CIRI Board of Directors and executive leadership team participated in a strategy session to set targets and develop a roadmap that will deliver sustainable growth in Shareholder value.

Our strategic approach includes:

  • Growing and diversifying our revenue base through both organic and inorganic growth.
  • Refining existing operations and optimizing resources already in place.
  • Gaining access to new markets through mergers and acquisitions.

Any goal we set must be tempered by clarity and collective buy-in. We do this by staying true to our mission, vision and values; tracking progress and measuring success along the way, which keeps us accountable; and maintaining Shareholder and Descendant focus in all we do.

Thank you for placing your trust and confidence in CIRI’s leadership team—I look forward to continuing our journey! As always, if you have business-related questions, please email me directly at [email protected].

Best regards,

Swami Iyer
