2017 Black Book: 326 Profiles of Hawaiʻi Executives

To diversify this list, we have included top honorees and executives from three major Hawaii Business programs.

Welcome to the 21st annual Black Book from Hawaii Business magazine – a valuable resource for local businesses. It includes biographies from the executives of the Top 250 companies in Hawaii (August issue) and other local organizations. 

  • 20 for the Next 20 (March issue)
  • Best Places to Work (April issue)
  • The first 25 of the Top 100 Realtors (June issue)

Biography surveys were emailed in August to nearly 800 Hawaii executives. Of those, we received enough information to print 326 biographies this year. In a few cases, it’s possible that information submitted is now out of date.
