HEAD OF PLANNING AND PERMITTING TO RETURN TO PRIVATE SECTOR
Mayor Jeremy Harris announced today that Randall K. Fujiki, AIA, director of the City’s Department of Planning and Permitting, will leave his position at the end of this month to join a private firm, Construction Management and Development, Inc. (CM&D).
Fujiki, architect and planner, will become CM&D’s senior vice president. CM&D, a Honolulu-based international construction management firm, is the largest in Hawaii and 63rd largest in the nation. The Hawaii office works primarily for private sector clients on such projects as the Ward Entertainment Center, 2100 Kalakaua Avenue and Nike Town.
Since joining the City administration in 1994, Fujiki has headed three City departments: the Building Department, 1994-1998; the Department of Design and Construction, 1998-2000, and the Department of Planning and Permitting, 2000 to present.
Mayor Harris said, “During Randy’s tenure with the City, he has transformed the bureaucratic and regulatory orientation of the departments he oversaw and focused on improving customer service, developing our one-stop permitting centers and internet permit tracking, opening up community involvement in government and always stressing design excellence.
“Citizen empowerment moved forward in a bold way through the creation of the island-wide visioning program,” Mayor Harris said. “Randy was a catalyst for the visioning program and much of its success is due to his efforts. He has also been at the forefront in our sustainability efforts, especially the retrofitting of energy management systems in City facilities.
“Randy has earned national recognition for both Honolulu and himself during his eight years of City service. We thank him for his contributions and wish him well as he returns to the private sector,” Mayor Harris concluded.
