At Olomana Loomis ISC, we look for smart, innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and results-driven, team-oriented people with a passion for lifelong learning and serving clients and our community. If this sounds like a place you are looking for, please contact us.
Chairman, CEO & Executive Creative Director
“Belief in the force for good” is a particularly powerful quote that serves as an inspiration for this serial entrepreneur and award-winning marketing and business strategist. Born in Malaysia even before Yoda hit the big screen, Alan has been promoting values-driven business practices for the past three decades. Clients and friends alike have called him a dynamic professional who is a brilliant problem-solver and incredible team player. He is described as authentic while being an out-of-the-box thinker. Perhaps it’s obvious that he is one with the Force and the Force is with him.
Chief Brand & Communications Officer and Executive Vice President
Getting to the essence of who an organization is, what it stands for, and how it communicates and lives its values while building trust in a 24/7/365 digital world is what excites and energizes this brand and communications strategist. As a member of our executive leadership team, Carole oversees our communications department and partners with clients on strategic initiatives. In her spare time, this Honolulu native enjoys traveling with family, including Alan and their two grown children; sampling gourmet foods; hiking; photography; art; yoga and mindfulness exercises.
Chief Marketing Officer
When this doting mother isn’t showing us the latest photos or videos of her spunky toddler daughter, she’s hard at work overseeing marketing strategies for the agency’s clients. Natalie is a marketing planner at heart and specializes in advertising and data-driven digital initiatives. Although she has called Hawai‘i “home” for nearly two decades, this Windy City native admits to missing beefs (“seriously delicious Italian Beef Sandwiches with sweet peppers, giardiniera and melted mozzarella cheese”) and her family in Chicago (but not necessarily in that order).
LIANE HU OKUMURA, APR
Senior Director of Communications & Public Relations
Don’t let her petite frame fool you! Liane is a tough go-getter who specializes in communications, public relations and multi-channel content generation. Born and raised in Hawai‘i, this Boston University alumna’s career has taken her as far away as the epicenter for English majors: London, England. When she’s not managing integrated communications campaigns, Liane enjoys board games and spending time with her husband and their dog, Barney (named after a character in the “How I Met Your Mother” TV show and definitely not the dinosaur).
Director of Community Relations & Communications
With a passion for using the power of stories to move Hawai‘i forward, Katie specializes in strategic communications and media relations. After spending nearly a decade in Washington, D.C.—including four years on Capitol Hill—she is no stranger to crisis communications and connecting complicated policy issues to the lives of Hawai‘i residents.
A Maui native, Katie came home to Hawai‘i in 2019 and brought her love of politics with her. When she isn’t managing community relations and communications initiatives, she can be found exploring the island of O‘ahu, as well as the virtual islands of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Born and raised in Honolulu, Gordon Pang has more than three decades of experience as a daily newspaper reporter in Hawai‘i. Making sense of complex issues like city budgets and new laws and explaining them to readers was his trademark. After graduating from the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa with a journalism degree, Gordon worked at newspapers on Hawai‘i Island. It was there he cut his teeth covering everything from the closing of sugar plantations to lava outbreaks. He carried that small-town newspaper mentality with him back to Honolulu newsrooms. As Content Manager, he will continue to bring stories from across Hawai‘i to life. His extracurricular activities include “making A” with his media friends in the bi-annual Gridiron show that raises money for aspiring journalists.
With a passion for international languages and culture, Jennifer honed her professional skills as a marketer and project manager in Tokyo. Originally from California, this UCLA graduate loves analyzing marketing data and regional nuances to help develop and implement results-driven campaigns for our clients. Well-traveled, Jennifer enjoys theater and literature, and is fluent in business Japanese and Vietnamese.
Marketing & Communications Specialist
With a passion for innovative ways to make a difference for businesses and our community, Xavier earned his Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Intelligence & Analytics with a minor in Theatre from Creighton University. When he’s not working on marketing and communications projects, you can find this Mililani native pursuing his musical interests, playing sports, hiking, and playing video games!
Marketing & Communications Specialist
Emi specializes in creating compelling integrated marketing and communications campaigns. Previously, she was an editor for Quora and served as a healthcare office manager. An O‘ahu native, Emi graduated from Seattle University with a B.A. in English Literature and a minor in Business Administration. She enjoys coffee with a passion and traversing mountainsides to discover the best hike on O‘ahu.
Born in China and raised in Houston, Taylor completed her senior year in Osaka, Japan, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations with a minor in Finance from the University of Houston. When she is not working on public relations and marketing projects, Taylor can be found catching waves or exploring Hawaii’s great outdoors.
SUN HEE KIM
When our award-winning multimedia & graphic designer isn’t putting her masterful touch on clients’ ads, websites, emails, social media and collateral, Sun can be found exploring nearby downtown eateries or the augmented wondrous world of Pokémon Go. Born and raised in South Korea, she speaks fluent Korean and English and has an appreciation for international cultures and cuisines. Lucky for her: Honolulu is a melting pot with no shortage of multicultural and culinary adventures, augmented or otherwise!
Creative Department Manager, Multimedia Specialist
If your customers are viewing media that our agency has produced, on screens of all shapes and sizes, Britney is the master behind what they see. She excels in producing videos and images for digital, social media and traditional channels. In addition, she manages the creative department. When this Hawai‘i Island girl and animal lover isn’t behind the camera, she enjoys being active outdoors and in the gym, and is a big fan of Boston teams (go Celtics and Patriots!).
You can tell Brian has been working hard by the number of unfinished coffee drinks on his desk (iced black or a caramel macchiato when the diet goes out the window). A connoisseur of all things design, Brian is always on the lookout for new ways to delight, inspire and stay on trend.
Motion Graphics Artist & Animator, Videographer
A graduate of USC’s prestigious School of Cinematic Arts, Justin brings his considerable talents in 3D animation, game design, motion graphics and videography to create that special “oomph” for clients’ TV spots, videos and digital ads. When this O‘ahu native is not working on amazing visuals, you’ll find him at the gym, hiking, surfing and taking photos.
Lloyd is responsible for the financial operations of the agency. A certified public accountant by training, he has more than 10 years of experience in the public and private sectors, working with leaders across industries and overseeing auditing, analysis, budgeting, forecasting, and financial information systems. A graduate of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, he holds a B.B.A. in Accounting. In his spare time, Lloyd enjoys spending time with his young daughter.
Darrelyn specializes in accounting and oversees office management. She has more than 20 years of experience in the field and previously worked in the insurance and telecommunications industries. A former customer service representative, she always greets you with a smile. Darrelyn enjoys exercise and baking, and is our agency’s “pastry chef” in residence.
