“I look forward to joining the Mahi Pono management team, and I’m relying heavily on our local team, especially Shan as he continues to serve as Mahi Pono’s liaison with the community and will continue overseeing government relations, business strategy, management operations, communications, and sales and distribution. This is the natural evolution of Mahi Pono as we have grown from 23 employees in March with no planted acreage to projected plantings of more than 4,000 acres of food crops and 200 employees in 2020,” said O’Laughlin.

O’Laughlin is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a BA in Political Science and a JD from Santa Clara University. He has been married to his wife, Paula, for 33 years. Paula is a high school counselor and together they have two sons, Danny and Brad. Tim and Paula are in the process of moving to Maui.
