Mahi Pono, LLC, today announced the appointment of Larry Nixon as General Manager. Nixon joined Mahi Pono on January 28 and will be managing the company’s farming operations on Maui.

Alexander and Baldwin sold 41,000 acres of former Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company lands to Mahi Pono LLC in December of 2018.

“Larry brings more than 20 years of farming experience both in Hawai‘i and on the mainland,” said Shan Tsutsui, senior vice president of operations at Mahi Pono. “Larry’s track record of success will be invaluable as we launch Mahi Pono’s diversified agricultural efforts in Central Maui.”

“I am excited to be back in Hawai‘i, and look forward to helping revitalize Maui’s once thriving and diverse agriculture community,” said Nixon. “Farming on an island is truly a community effort, and I am looking forward to sharing our planting and production plans, and working with the community and our farming neighbors.”

Prior to joining Mahi Pono, Nixon worked in Hawai‘i as a Business Unit Manager for MacFarms of Hawai‘i. Nixon’s other farming experience includes being General Manager of Malin Potato, Operations Manager for Roll International, now known as The Wonderful Company, and Operations Manager for Sun Pacific. Nixon received his BS in Engineering from Arizona State University.
