Hawaii Business 2009 Black Book

How We Complied Biographies 0f 342 Top Executives

Welcome to the 13th annual Hawaii Business Black Book, a valuable compilation of biographies of Hawaii’s top executives.

To collect the information, e-mails were sent in September to Hawaii executives, nonprofit leaders and public officials, including more than 700 business leaders named in the Executive Index of the Hawaii Business Top 250 August issue. The executives and their assistants were asked to input the biographies into our online database and to agree to have that information published. This year, we received 342 responses.

We apologize for any errors; if you detect one, please e-mail us at, so we can correct next year’s edition. Some biographies were edited to fit space available, but you can find the full text at Some were eliminated because of insufficient information.
