Date: October 12, 2017

Owner and NFIB/Alaska Leadership Council member Kevin Turkington’s enterprise started with just him, now has 100 employees.

Another NFIB/Alaska Leadership Council member is in the news.

Anchorage-based Midnight Sun Home Care was recently named one of the fastest-growing inner city businesses in America by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, which put Midnight Sun on its top 100 list for 2017.

As reported by Fortune magazine, “Midnight Sun Home Care provides in-home care to senior, vulnerable, and injured adults in the Anchorage, Alaska area. Founded 2002 as a one-man operation, today founder Kevin Turkington oversees an administrative and caretaker staff of 100. Turkington believes the company’s culture of relationship building, including a program that incentivizes staff to volunteer, helps explain Midnight Sun Home Care’s turnover rate, which is half the rate of the industry average.”

NFIB/Alaska State Director Denny DeWitt applauded Midnight Sun’s national ranking and had high praise for Turkington. “Kevin has been one of NFIB’s go-to owners when we’ve had to call on the high regard he’s built up with legislators. This has helped kill bad-for-small-business bills as well as advanced good ones. His success in establishing a truly fine enterprise has paid dividends for all small-business owners in Alaska in the form of the credibility he offers in testimony before committees of the Alaska Legislature.”
