HONOLULU — Gov. David Ige today announced the appointment of five members of his Cabinet.

“All of these appointees display a leadership style that will move Hawaii forward for the benefit of the public interest,” said Gov. Ige. “There is hard work to be done and together we will address the issues facing our state in a direct and forthright manner.”

 Jobie Masagatani will be retained as chair of the Hawaiian Homes Commission and director of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL). Masagatani previously served as deputy director at DHHL from 1995 to 2002 and as director since 2012. Additionally, Masagatani was the special assistant to the CEO of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA), an assistant to the president and CEO of The Queen’s Health Systems, where she focused on Native Hawaiian health, and a land investment analyst for Kamehameha Schools.

Serving as deputy to Masagatani will be William Aila Jr. The former chair of the Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR) and head of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) planned and directed the various activities of the department encompassing public lands of the State; water resources and minerals thereon; forest, fish and game resources of the State; and management of the forest reserve, state parks, small boat harbors, and historic sites.
