The new year will bring huge risks — and potentially big rewards — for the companies and causes supported by these Hawaii leaders. That’s why we call them our 2013 10 to Watch.
The 10 to Watch includes leaders from two public companies — Hawaiian Electric Industries (NYSE: HE) and Royal Hawaiian Orchards (Other OTC: NNUTU); public agencies including the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation and the Foreign Trade Zone; the University of Hawaii; the state’s largest hospital, The Queen’s Medical Center; a solar energy firm on the verge of going public; Hawaii’s public television station, PBS Hawaii; a technology accelerator; and the agency charged with getting the state’s first health insurance exchange up and running this fall.
