Faye Watanabe Kurren, president and chief executive officer of Hawaii Dental Service, will retire at the end of this year after leading the company for the past 11 years.

Prior to joining HDS, Kurren was president of Tesoro Hawaii Corp.

“Faye has put HDS on a solid path for the future and will leave the company in excellent shape,” said Michael O’Malley, chairperson of the HDS board and partner in the law firm Goodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel.

“HDS now enjoys strong capitalization and expanded organizational capacity, which is remarkable since HDS’s administrative expenses are considerably lower than the industry average.  We regret her decision to retire and thank her for her outstanding leadership.”

HDS said recruitment to fill the CEO position is currently under way.
