About Me:
Deb Hickok has had the honor of serving as President and CEO of Explore Fairbanks since September 1999. She has been a professional in the field of destination marketing since 1982. Whether luring direct air service to Fairbanks, developing other infrastructure projects, or assisting media with story ideas, Hickok leads with a collaborative philosophy. Deb has served in a variety of roles on the Board of Directors for the Alaska Travel Industry Association, the largest statewide tourism organization, including Chair in 2011. In 2018, Deb received the Denali Award from ATIA> She currently serves on the boards of the United States travel Association and ATIA. She just completed two terms on the Great Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce. In the past, she served as 2nd VP of SATW-Western Chapter Board; and two terms on the Board of Directors of the Destinations Council of the Washington D.C.-based United States Travel Association. Deb is also on an advisor to Adventure Green Alaska, a certification program for tourism businesses that meet specific standards of economic, environmental, and social sustainability. Deb spent most of her adult life as a professional in Pennsylvania tourism until moving to Alaska in 1999. Deb's current hobbies include yoga 101, walking/quasi-jogging, reading, seemingly-endless house projects, and being continually educated by her 20-something daughter who now lives "Outside" (as in outside of Alaska).
