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
Vice President, 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 Special Projects
Trey is a seasoned marketing, communications and social media professional with past management experience in a variety of industries including healthcare, retail, non-profits, and IT. As Director of Special Projects, he leads and works with Olomana Loomis teams to develop, plan and implement strategic campaigns for our clients.

Taryn was born and raised in Hawai‘i, and she has a BA in Multimedia Communications. When she isn’t playing with words, she can be found reorganizing her house, learning about the universe, or curled up in bed with tea and a book about post-apocalyptic worlds.

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.
