Stan Hooley, CEO

Stan Hooley has been Chief Executive Officer of the Iditarod Trail Committee (ITC) since July of 1993. Most of his time today is focused on the overall growth and success of the Iditarod—though, in his spare time he particularly enjoys finding a new secret spot full of oversized and overweight rainbow trout.Phone: (907) 376-5155 x104
