HCF is a highly motivated team of talented people who are knowledgeable about the community, eager to identify its most critical issues, and passionate about finding solutions. We are diverse in our professional specialties, from legal to finance to analysis. Some of our team members have been with HCF for 30 years, while others became a team member only recently. Whether we grew up in Kalihi, Baltimore City, Kailua-Kona, Hilo, Lahaina or Boston, we are committed to Hawai‘i’s success. We proudly walk the talk both as HCF professionals and caring members of our community.
