2020 Impact Report
The momentum we have is striking. When you put it in the context of what's going on globally, to maintain a level of focus like that and the willingness to bound together as a team, has been fantastic.
Josh Herren
President/CEO Yulista

Seeing someone live a life of genuine, humble servanthood catches people's attention. It's noticeable because it's so rare in a world crowded with pretense and ego.

Humble servant leadership is powerful. It elevates people and has a lasting impact on those it serves. It's unusual enough when an individual possesses humble servant leadership. Imagine what it could do for a company.

it could be a game changer.

We have to lead through humble servant leadership. The responsibility we're given isn't for the glory of our own good... but to do good things for others.

Introduction:

The world is full of productive and profitable companies. But, it’s rare to encounter a world-class, modern industry leader that genuinely anchors itself in ancient values like loyalty, allegiance, hard work, and honor. These values, and others like it, are the lifeblood of Yulista.

We’re leaders in our field. Leaders don’t leave people behind. Leaders stand with people. Leaders support and serve. That’s Yulista’s mission. We’re driven to innovate in order to preserve what matters most — People. Serving and supporting the success of people is the most important part of any worthwhile mission.

At Yulista, we’re a family of engineers, kitting clerks and mechanics. We’re village elders, summer interns, and school children with new backpacks. We’re veterans, moms, dads, volunteers, executives. Some of us are Alaskan and others are Appalachian; we represent the diversity of our country. Most of all we are determined to remain loyal, unpretentious, and united as we serve our customers.

You’ll find us giving our all to discover solutions, meet elite standards for quality, and act swiftly where needed, because every day, peacekeepers and warfighters need support to survive, voyagers and explorers need innovation to make the impossible--possible, and nations need partners to build bridges of goodwill where it’s in short supply.

We're Yulista. And we're Game Changers.

Who We Are:

We are a cultural community.

Our customers, coworkers, community and shareholders have different backgrounds, but share one mission. Put people first.

We carry a legacy.

We embody Alaskan Interior values of community, teamwork, and hard work.

We are a family.

Our entire company is an extension of our Shareholder community. When one wins, we all win.

We are a team.

Everything our partners, colleagues, and shareholders do is about serving others.

We are humble.

In a competitive market, we’re quiet leaders with an honest attitude, straightforward business acumen and a humble swagger.

Yulista Cares:

Our team-led community service initiative delivered 1220 backpacks and school supplies across the entire nation in 2020. Over 500 backpacks were sent to Shareholders in Kwethiuk and Napakiak. Each backpack was filled to the brim with children’s school supplies.

For many families, this was a game changer.

The school principal was moved by the tears of families. Frequently, the parents in these areas don’t have work-from-home flexibility. They struggle to manage work and the kids’ schooling from home.

Yulista CARES also championed backpack deliveries in Alabama and to new locations across Hawaii, New Jersey and Texas this year. With many families recently laid-off, the backpacks helped more than ever.

Knowing the impact that those supplies make in the lives of the parents, students and teachers who receive them is truly satisfying.
Mary Muse
Head of the Yulista CARES campaign

Our Culture:

Twelve years after becoming our 49th state, our nation’s president signed the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act to help protect the sacred connection between native Alaskans and the unspoiled wilderness. Heartbreaking lessons learned from the past prompted preserving their bond with the land while also providing prospects like education, electricity and modern means of transportation. As the Calista Corporation was born in 1971, the span of its untouched spaces and people revealed unique challenges. How could preservation and progress meet without one dominating the other? And how would Native Alaskans share in the prosperity and growth when the 58,000 square miles of land didn’t even have one paved road to connect the 56 villages?

Calista Corporation is owned by over 33,000 Yup’ik, Cup’ik and Athabascan Shareholders with ancestral ties to southwest Alaska.

To Team Yulista:

Thank you doesn't express how incredibly powerful, inspirational, and capable you are. Our teams on the East Coast, across the high plains, down to Hawaii, and up to Alaska came to work with a quiet and professional disposition and carried a very potent stick. Adversity did not shake the foundations of who we are or throw us off our commitment to each other, our customers, and shareholders.

Along the way, we lost dear friends and co-workers. We said goodbye to Robin Anderson, Matthew Short, Danny Lee, Michael McIntosh, Daniel Gonzales, and Jeffrey Patterson. Employees are mourning the loss of parents, aunts and uncles, and siblings. Even as I write this, the nation just lost a decorated war hero and the father of our EVP, Brian Tachias.

For those we lost, our hearts sing “O Captain! My Captain! Rise up – for you the flag is flung.” We now carry on their memory eternal. In their honor, we salute to an unanswered roll call and now stand upon the shores they once did. We shall carry on their legacy with honor, dignity, kindness, and love.

2020 is a year none of us will forget. And still, again, we’ve hit record highs in revenue, profits, team members, and customer service.

As you look through the highlights in these pages, be proud of what you’ve accomplished. Stay humbled by the opportunity to serve such an incredible purpose. Hold gratitude for the customers that trust us to assist them in their missions.

You faced incredible adversity with resolve and focus. Like Teddy Roosevelt said when he was shot, “…it takes more than one bullet to kill a Bull Moose.”

Thank you for holding the line, Team Yulista.

Gratefully,

Joshua D. Herren signature
