Hunt has promoted veteran development executive Thomas Lee to Senior Vice President.
In this position, Lee will oversee many of Hunt’s development projects and assets in Hawai‘i, including 540 acres in Kalaeloa; the 32-acre Waikele Bluff; Makaloa, a 68-unit for-sale residential project in Maui; and the redevelopment of Mayor Wright Homes for the Hawai’i Public Housing Authority.
Lee first joined Hunt in 2006 as Development Manager and has most recently served as Vice President.
Among other Hunt initiatives, Lee oversaw the $14 million beach restoration at Iroquois Point, the largest project of its kind ever in Hawai’i. The project was completed in 2013 – nine years after initial planning commenced – and in 2014 was named one of four Best Restored Beaches by the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association.
A dedicated community volunteer, Lee currently serves on the boards of directors for the Hawai’i Korean Chamber of Commerce, the ULI Young Leaders’ Executive Committee, the Kapolei Chamber of Commerce and the SHADE Institute, a public-interest design non-profit.
Lee earned a Master of Real Estate Development from the University of Southern California, a Bachelor of Science in Managerial Economics from the University of California at Davis and an Associate of Applied Science in Construction Management from Portland Community College.
