After more than 30 years in public service, Warren was inspired to build an organization that would continue his commitment to service and directly benefit his beloved Native Hawaiian community. He did this through the establishment of a Native Hawaiian Organization owned 8(a) small business. This designation brought with it new opportunities to serve commercial and government clients while making tangible investments to support Native Hawaiians through scholarships, mentorship, and philanthropy.
Unfortunately, Warren passed away shortly before his 68th birthday. But thanks to his enduring spirit, his dream is alive and well in the form of the Nakupuna Foundation and its companies. Every day, by providing outstanding services to our customers and contributing to the betterment of Native Hawaiians, our companies serve as a testament to Warren’s belief that we all can make a positive impact on the world.
