MAYOR ANNOUNCES TWO APPOINTMENTS

 

Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced he has appointed Keith Rollman as special advisor to the director in the City Department of Information Technology.  The mayor also appointed longtime Hawaii business leader Jeanne Schultz to replace Rollman as the mayor’s executive director

 for economic development.

 

Rollman has extensive experience in computer technology as well as in marketing and advertising. Rollman is a graduate of the University of Hawaii School of Architecture. He spent part of his career in the high-tech hotbed of Austin, Texas, where his work included launching a $170 million e-commerce start-up, living.com. He served as vice president with McNeil Wilson Communications, heading its technology division.  More recently, he headed his own consulting firm and served on the executive committee of the Hawaii Technology Trade Association.

 

In his new post, Rollman will serve as the deputy to Gordon Bruce, director of the City Department of Information Technology. That’s one of four City departments where Mayor Hannemann chose to appoint special advisors rather than higher-paid deputy directors. (The other departments are Community Services, Customer Services and Emergency Services.)

 

Schultz has been actively involved in Hawaii’s business community for the past 25 years. She established the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii’s Military Affairs Council and served in state government as deputy director of transportation, and deputy director and director of the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism. Schultz was the marketing manager for the James Campbell Estate from 1996 to 2003. Since then, she has headed her own company, planning, organizing and conducting such events as the Hawaii Job Summit.
