The governor has announced his latest appointment to the UH Board of Regents. Barry T. Mizuno, the former managing director for the Big Island, was selected to fill the Hawaii County vacancy on the board.

Mizuno is also a retiree from Puna Geothermal Venture and previously worked for Constellation Energy Group, Hamakua Sugar Company and Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. He served as Managing Director for the County of Hawai’i from 1990 to 1992.

Mizuno is a certified accountant who serves on a number of community and professional organizations. He earned his B.A. in Business Administration from Central Washington University and is a graduate of Waimea High and Elementary School.

Mizuno will serve as interim regent pending confirmation by the full Senate next session. The Senate successfully confirmed the governor’s earlier appointments of Coralie Matayoshi, Saedene Ota, and Jan Sullivan.


The 15-member board is tasked with formulating policy and oversight of the University of Hawai’i system through the UH president.
