Hochart has 12 years of experience “implementing technology initiatives,” including the first online asset management system for the City and County of Honolulu. Yani has worked as a television producer, commentator and correspondent, while Lagareta is chief executive officer of Communications Pacific, one of the state’s top communications, marketing and public relations firms.
