As the newest addition to the agency’s seven-member executive team, he will oversee a staff of about 12 people and direct OHA’s efforts to be a responsible steward of more than 27,000 acres of land that it owns as the state’s 13th largest landowner.

OHA adds land director to executive team

HONOLULU (Oct. 17, 2014) – The Office of Hawaiian Affairs has named Miles Nishijima as its new director of land and property, effective Monday, Oct. 20.

As the newest addition to the agency’s seven-member executive team, he will oversee a staff of about 12 people and direct OHA’s efforts to be a responsible steward of more than 27,000 acres of land that it owns as the state’s 13th largest landowner.

He most recently was vice president of property management at Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. He also previously served as assistant vice president of asset management for Kāneʻohe Ranch Management Limited, where he was responsible for handling leases for 151 commercial tenants occupying more than 300,000 square feet of space.

His appointment is part of a larger effort to improve OHA’s effectiveness as a major property owner, whose landholdings include 30-acres in Kaka‘ako Makai; Nā Lama Kukui, which is formerly known as the Gentry Pacific Design Center; an estimated 500 acres surrounding historic Kūkaniloko Birthstones State Monument in Central O‘ahu; and Wao Kele o Puna, a 25,856-acre property on Hawai‘i Island.

“We look forward to Miles leading our efforts to apply high standards to addressing our growing challenges as a land and property owner,” said Kamana‘opono Crabbe, Ka Pouhana and CEO. “We are also excited about his ability to inspire confidence in our efforts to enable sustainable economic activities that preserve cultural and natural resources.”
