To help those around us build a stronger community through partnerships and performance in our everyday lives.
Aligned AK strives to uphold these core principles in everything we do. This is our compass for success.
The desire to help people and bring value to others professionally is why Aligned AK was created. Helping others to achieve their goals. Helping those around us become stronger together as a team. And helping the planet and our society remain a place where our children can raise their children to flourish.
Every person is a human being who deserves respect, and to not be treated differently because of an immutable characteristic or belief system. Aligned AK does not discriminate against or treat differently any person based on race, gender, age, sexual orientation, or beliefs. We maintain an atmosphere of inclusivity where every person, whether part of our team or someone we work with outside the organization, can enjoy their rights on an equal basis.
Love for others is central to our belief system and guides our actions from how we treat people to how we conduct business.
“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” 1 Cor 13:1
As an Alaskan-based company we take pride in being a member of our local community, and our values reflect our commitment to this great state and the people we serve. We seek to engage, assist, and participate in community-driven initiatives to better the life of those around us.
Kael Ladegard, President
It began in 2003 when I graduated from UAA and started my career with a contract furniture dealership. I quickly learned the processes of the commercial furniture industry, then branched out into more specialized architectural products such as demountable glass partitions and acoustical materials. Finally, I expanded into complete facility supply and installation. It was at this point when I began to view the project holistically, and I developed a passion for organizing the complete interiors package.
Through 18 years of working closely with architects and interior designers, I have learned how to integrate my knowledge and expertise into a framework of creative professionals and truly find my place in the industry. This natural progression led me to create Aligned AK … an organization where I can serve the community and bring value to those around me. We are Aligned with you.
