TODD BRADLEY and BRIAN KEAULANA - Founders of C4 Waterman

More than highly innovative products, the founders and owners of C4 Waterman, Hawaii-based manufacturers of surfing equipment, have taken to fore the marketing of their lifestyle. Todd Bradley, Brian Keaulana, and Mike Fox base their business philosophy on the four core disciplines of a waterman – balance, endurance, strength, and tradition – leading to their C4 brand. And beyond their mission of advocating the waterman way of life, the C4 owners have grounded a foundation that they hope would protract their already socially veered mindset.

Four months in to their business venture, Bradley, Keaulana and Fox are already riding the huge and fast waves of entrepreneurial success that they wish to reflect back to the community soon.

BILL CHEE - President and Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Locations, LLC

Bill Chee outrightly admitted that naiveté and inexperience helped him and two other colleagues start their real estate business. Topped with risk-taking and inquisitiveness, Bill has brewed all the right characteristics that make an entrepreneur—and a successful businessman he truly has become.

Bill acquired his real estate licensure at the age of 20. He worked his way through college selling properties but constantly failed, eventually trying his hand on banking. However, his stint with First Hawaiian Bank was ephemeral, he consequently tracked back and pursued his real estate endeavor. At the age of 22, Bill started what was to become Prudential Locations, LLC; one of Hawaii’s oldest and the largest locally owned real estate brokerage firm.

Born Saleva’a Fauali Atisano’e, Konishiki Yasokichi was the first foreign-born sumo wrestler to be named champion or Ozeki. Konishiki won his first 11 matches as an amateur athlete in the Japanese sport. He left after more than 15 years with the Sumo Association and started his own business as a marketing professional, publicizing his persona through television. Konishiki has appeared in several TV advertisements for Japanese companies and products. He is also an established recording artist, debuting in the music scene in 2000.

Konishiki founded the Konishiki Kids Foundation to mentor and guide disadvantaged children towards the right path. One of the main philosophies that the foundation wants to put forward is the idea that children have a “choice”.

JUNE JONES - Head Coach of the University of Hawaii Football Team

June Jones claims the title of the winningest coach in the history of the University of Hawaii’s football team. In his eight seasons with UH as head coach, June has also bagged the Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year twice, in 1999 and 2006. All these accomplishments stem from a consequential decision. After being offered a contract to continue as the San Diego Charger’s head coach, June opted to take the head-coaching job at Hawaii when it was offered, choosing an indelible challenge over a sizeable paycheck.

In his many years of involvement with the sport as coach and player, June has been decorated with numerous awards and has helped other individuals reach their full potential in this gridiron sport. In 1982, June was a player coach in helping the Toronto Argos to a division title. In 1984, while coaching in the USFL with the Houston Gamblers, he had two receivers catch over 100 passes for the first time in professional history.
